NCHGR Supports Training at Three Career Levels

The NIH National Center for Human Genome Research (NCHGR) reminds the scientific community that funds are available to support multidisciplinary research training at three career levels: (1) predoctoral training through institutional training grants, (2) postdoctoral fellowships for advanced training in genomic analysis through institutional training grants or individual fellowships, and (3) individual senior fellowships for established scientists who wish to acquire new skills relevant to genomic research. Positions expanded under the institutional training grants allow predoctoral, postdoctoral, and short-term training.

NCHGR also supports training in areas of interest to the ethical, legal, and social implications program and strongly emphasizes interdisciplinary training.

Application Receipt Dates

  • Individual fellowships: April 5, August 5, and December 5.
  • Institutional training grants: January 10, May 10, and September 10.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
