R01-A1 Grantwriting Group: kickoff in Feb. 2017 at Dallas, TX - apply by 11/16/16

Grant Proposal Writing & Professional Development Coaching Groups:
R01-A1 submissions

Resubmitting a R01 grant proposal to the 
National Institutes of Health (NIH)  in Spring/Summer 2017? 
Want to work closely with successful  senior 
researchers to  address the  summary statements  and revisions ?  
NRMN has worked with  people like to you on their  journey to 
becoming an  independent researcher. 

NRMN believes grant proposal writing can be taught rather than  "picked up"  a long the way.  Brief exposure to proposal writing  (e.g. workshops)  is insufficient for developing the skills needed for funding success.   NRMN grantwriting coaching groups are small communities of  early-stage investigators mentees who are actively writing grant proposals  with the support of experienced investigator coaches and advisors.   The groups work together over several months before mentees submit their  final proposals to NIH.  This opportunity is for individuals who are r ewriting R01 grant proposals for resubmission.

Apply Now for the new Grantwriting Coaching Group

More Information & Application:


Program Overview: Over the past two years, NRMN has launched four different national coaching group models to assist junior faculty and advanced postdoctoral fellows who are seeking research funding, particularly NIH funding. To date, nearly 300 individuals have participated in these groups, with the great majority finding them extremely helpful. During this time we have also identified a particular need that has not been sufficiently met - individuals who have submitted R01 proposals, received encouraging reviews, and are in the processing of rewriting for resubmission. This new NRMN offering is designed for these individuals whether or not they have previously participated in NRMN coaching groups.

Who are the mentees? 
Post doctoral associates and junior faculty who are seeking to develop a competitive NIH-style grant proposal for a research project and/or research career development award in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical and social sciences. 
Who are the coaches? 
Mid- to late-career researchers who apply their well-honed skills in effective research proposal writing to provide tailored feedback on multiple iterations of mentee's grant proposals over several months of development.  They share NRMN's passion for helping with career advancement of investigators from diverse backgrounds.
Who are the advisors? 
Mid- to late-career researchers who share their scientific and/or methodology expertise with mentees on an ad hoc basis. 

Please forward this to anyone who may be interested.
