Diversity in Aging Research Pipeline Program

The Training Office, within the Office of the Scientific Director, has developed a pilot program to enhance diversity within the NIA intramural research program and eventually within the biomedical research workforce. The Diversity in Aging Research Pipeline Program (DARPP), is a multi-entry pipeline program to develop and expose students from diverse backgrounds, including underrepresented minorities and socioeconomically disadvantaged students, to aging research. Students will participate in ongoing NIH Training Programs to enter the pipeline and receive training from an NIA/IRP scientists in a highly mentored, structured environment. Long-term support and follow through will be provided to students as they matriculate through the various levels of education. We believe that this unique learning experience is for students who will soon evolve into our next generation of aging researchers.

Currently DARPP is recruiting for two postdoctoral fellows: One (1) Post-doctoral Fellowship Award for Aging Research and one (1) James S. Jackson Fellowship - An Age Associated Minority Health and Health Disparities Fellowship.

Future vacancies and recruitments will be posted when there are openings.  HHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers.

The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.
