The DOC is charged with the task of building a comprehensive diversity program within the NIH/NIDA IRP. Its mission is thus to recruit high school students, post-baccalaureate students, and postdoctoral students, with the long-term goal of developing and recruiting tenure track scientists from under-represented populations in order to increase diversity in biomedical science. The Committee’s tasks also include developing community outreach programs that will benefit the diverse populations living in Baltimore. These programs will aim to provide better community awareness and understanding of drug abuse research programs at the NIDA IRP. Contact Michelle Jobes for more information about any of our diversity and outreach programs.
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.
Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) Positions for under- represented post-bac, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows: NIDA SD Fellowship for Diversity in Research
This mechanism serves to promote mentorship of young scientists from underrepresented populations by NIDA IRP scientists. These activities will help to ensure the success of these students in their pursuit of careers in science and medicine. Fellows will participate in research and will present their findings at local and national meetings. Applications are being accepted now.
