The Branch’s investments in training focus on two major goals: training researchers in the population sciences; and preparing scientists to participate effectively in interdisciplinary research.
R24 Research Infrastructure for Demographic and Behavioral Population Science (RIPS)
The Population Science Research Infrastructure Program supports infrastructure for research that is relevant to the PDB mission at leading universities and research centers throughout the United States. For more information on this infrastructure program, visit Research Infrastructure for Demographic and Behavioral Population Science (R24) Program (DB-Pop).
T32 Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants
The Branch uses the T32 mechanism to support institutional training programs for predoctoral and postdoctoral scientists in the area of population research. For more information, visit http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-11-184.html.
K01 Population Research Scientist Development Award Program
The Branch uses the K01 to support career development for junior-level researchers in the area of population research. For more about the Population Research Scientist Development Program, visit http://www.nichd.nih.gov/research/supported/Pages/prsdap.aspx.
