The NIDA IRP has multiple programs to recruit and financially support promising trainees from underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds, awarding time-limited fellowships at both the postbaccalaureate and postdoctoral level. We seek trainees who are passionate and committed to pursuing a career in science. For more information, contact Michelle Jobes at 443-740-2319 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Research Training for Under-represented Populations in Science
Each summer, NIDA IRP sponsors research activities for students from groups who are underrepresented in science. Students work full-time in laboratories located in the research facilities of the NIDA IRP in Baltimore. Learn more about this program.

This mechanism serves to promote mentorship of young scientists passionate about addiction research and issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in science. Fellows will participate in research at the NIDA IRP and have the opportunity to network and present their findings at local and national meetings. Program activities will help to ensure the success of these students in their pursuit of careers in science and medicine. People from diverse and underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply; see more info in the program description.
