The National Institutes of Health Common Fund announces the FY 2015 funding opportunity for the NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards (EIA). The EIA initiative allows exceptional junior scientists to accelerate their transition to an independent research career by “skipping” the traditional postdoctoral training. To be eligible, candidates must be within one year (before or after) of completion of their terminal degree or clinical residency at the time of application. Each institution (as defined by a unique DUNS identifier) may submit up to two applications in response to this FOA. See the instructions in the Funding Opportunity Announcement (RFA-RM-14-004).
