The NIDA IRP has multiple programs to recruit and financially support promising trainees from underserved and disadvantaged backgrounds, awarding time-limited fellowships at both the postbaccalaureate and postdoctoral level. We seek trainees who are passionate and committed to pursuing a career in science. For more information, contact Yeka Aponte at email@example.com.
This program is funded by NIDA and is currently partnered with the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) and Morgan State University to provide internship opportunities for interested upperclassmen from their student communities. Learn more about this program.
Each summer, NIDA IRP sponsors research activities for students interested in substance use disorder research. Students work full-time in laboratories located in the research facilities of the NIDA IRP in Baltimore. Learn more about this program.
The SDFDR program facilitates Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) Positions for post-bac and post-doctoral fellows. This mechanism serves to promote mentorship of young scientists passionate about addiction research and issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in science. Fellows will participate in research at the NIDA IRP and have the opportunity to network and present their findings at local and national meetings. Program activities will help to ensure the success of these students in their pursuit of careers in science and medicine. People from diverse groups are encouraged to apply.
