Letter of intent due: January 4, 2014
Application Due Date(s) February 4, 2014,
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has just issued RFA-GM-14-011,Modeling the Scientific Workforce (U01). Participating components of NIH include the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR). NIGMS and OBSSR are committed to employing data-driven, scientifically rigorous tools to develop a stable scientific workforce and recognize that there is a need to look beyond individual programs in isolation and pursue a systems-based approach to the study of scientific workforce dynamics. Advances in computational methods and system sciences suggest that it is possible to build models of the scientific workforce that will inform our understanding of workforce dynamics, support development and management of interventions and training programs, and guide the collection and analysis of data necessary for program design and management. The NIGMS and OBSSR understand that computational models are one tool among many used to guide policy and process. The OBSSR is specifically interested in supporting work to model the behavioral and social science workforce.
Note that this is a Cooperative Agreement: A support mechanism used when there will be substantial Federal scientific or programmatic involvement. Substantial involvement means that, after award, NIH scientific or program staff will assist, guide, coordinate, or participate in project activities.
Interested applicants are strongly encouraged to contact one of the Scientific/Research Contacts listed in the announcement as soon as they decide they want to apply.
