June NCI Transition Career Development Award (K22) http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-15-056.html  * The overall goal of the NIH Research Career Development program is to help ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists is available in appropriate scientific disciplines to address the Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs. The objective of the NCI Transition Career Development Award (K22) is to provide support to mentored, non-independent investigators in transitioning to their first independent tenure-track faculty cancer research positions, or their equivalent, with an enhanced probability of success for obtaining independent NIH or other research project grant support. Candidates in mentored, non-independent cancer research positions may apply, and if successful, must obtain tenure-track faculty, or equivalent, positions, and NCI approval before awards will be issued.  - The NCI K22 award will provide up to 3 years of support for the most promising and exceptionally talented mentored, non-independent investigators. This period of support is to allow the investigator to work towards establishing his/her own independent research program and to prepare an application for research grant support (R01 or equivalent). NIH believes that the creativity and innovation of new independent investigators in their early career stages play an integral role in addressing our Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs.
June NCI Transition Career Development Award to Promote Diversity (K22) http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-15-063.html  The goal of the NCI Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity (K22) program is to enhance the diversity of the NCI-funded research workforce by providing support to outstanding basic, behavioral, translational, or clinical investigators from backgrounds underrepresented in scientific research to develop their independent research skills. This goal is achieved by providing protected time through salary and research support for the initial 3 years of the first independent tenure-track faculty position, or its equivalent. Therefore, the award is intended to facilitate the establishment of a record of independent research by the candidate in order to sustain or promote a successful, independent research career.
June NHLBI Career Transition Award (K22) http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-12-137.html The objective of the NHLBI Career Transition Award (K22) program is to enable outstanding postdoctoral individuals to obtain research training experience in the NHLBI Division of Intramural Research and to facilitate their successful transition to an extramural environment as independent researchers.

Applicants must contact the NHLBI program staff (Section VII.) for guidance and additional information.  To achieve these objectives, the NHLBI Career Transition Award will support two phases of research. The award will provide up to two years of support for mentored research training in an NHLBI intramural laboratory followed by three years of support for an independent research project in an extramural institution. It is anticipated that awardees will subsequently obtain research project grants such as the R01 to support the continuation of their work.
June NIH Mentored Quantitative Research Development Award (K25) http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-14-048.html; http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/contacts/parent_K25.html The overall goal of the NIH Research Career Development program is to help ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists is available in appropriate scientific disciplines to address the Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs. In addition to this opportunity, NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) support a variety of other mentored career development programs designed to foster the transition of new investigators to research independence.   A particular area of research is often invigorated by novel perspectives that may be provided by individuals trained outside that research arena.  In an effort to advance research relevant to the mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which includes basic biomedical, clinical biomedical, bioengineering, bioimaging, and behavioral research, the participating Institutes and Centers (ICs) encourage applications for the NIH Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award (K25). The K25 mechanism is meant to attract to NIH-relevant research those investigators whose quantitative science and engineering research has thus far not been focused primarily on questions of health and disease.  Examples of quantitative scientific and technical backgrounds considered appropriate for this award include, but are not limited to: mathematics, statistics, economics, computer science, imaging science, informatics, physics, chemistry, and engineering.

June NIAID Career Transition Award (K22) http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-14-341.html  The objective of the of the NIAID Career Transition Award is to support postdoctoral fellows transitioning to positions of assistant professor or equivalent, and initiate a successful biomedical career as an independent research scientist. The K22 award will provide two years of support to conduct biomedical research as an independent scientist at an extramural sponsoring institution/organization to which the individual has been recruited, been offered and has accepted a tenure-track full-time assistant professor position (or equivalent). This support is to allow the individual to continue to work toward establishing his/her own independent research program and prepare an application for regular research grant support (R01).
