Institutional National Research Service Award (NRSA)

The NIDDK supports postdoctoral fellows (M.D., Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D., or equivalent) via slots on an Institutional Training Grant and/or through individual fellowships.  Both are covered by the regulations of the National Research Service Awards (NRSA).   
How to Apply (for fellows) 
To inquire about support on a T32, contact the individual listed as principal investigator of the training grant at the institution where you wish to pursue postdoctoral training.  If unavailable, consider an F31 or F31-D for predoctoral support, or an F32 for postdoctoral funding. If your doctoral degree was earned more than 3-4 years ago, consider the K-series awards.

How to Apply (for PIs, not fellows)

The applicant institution must have a strong and high-quality research program in the area(s) proposed and must have the requisite faculty and facilities on site to conduct the proposed institutional program.  In many cases, the proposed program may complement other ongoing research training programs occurring at the applicant institution.  A substantial number of program faculty members will have active research projects in which participating trainees may gain relevant experiences consistent with their research interests and goals.  Institutions with existing programs must explain what distinguishes this program from the others; how the programs will synergize with one another, if applicable; and make it clear that the pool of faculty, potential trainees, and resources are robust enough to support additional programs.
