The purpose of the NIMH Career Transition Award is to facilitate the transition of outstanding physician-scientists and senior postdoctoral investigators (with at least 2-3 years of postgraduate research experience) from the mentored to the independent stage of their research careers. The NIMH Career Transition Award will provide investigators with the opportunity to initially train within the NIMH Division of Intramural Research Programs and then to transition to a domestic US extramural institution where they can continue to work toward establishing their own independent research programs.

The entire project period consists of up to three years in an NIMH intramural laboratory, followed by continued research and career development support for up to two years at an extramural institution. The aggregate period of NIMH support under this award cannot exceed five years, and NIMH policy on career awards limits such support to one mentored career award per individual.

Because MU is limited in the number of applications it can make for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall, no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 2, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should describe plans for both the intramural and extramural phases of the proposed career development plan. A 2-page biographical sketch of the applicant’s qualifications should be included with the letter of intent.


Intramural Scholar Development Phase - total costs will not exceed $140,000 per year

Extramural Faculty Transition Phase - The NIMH will contribute up to 100 percent of the awardee's annual institutional base salary (based on a full-time, 12-month appointment) up to a maximum of $90,000. In addition, NIMH will provide up to $50,000 for research costs including technical personnel, equipment, supplies, travel to research meetings or training, statistical services (including personnel and computer time), and other expenses.
