Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities

National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases

Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities (INRO) 2022 will be accepting applications from September 1 - November 22, 2021!

Those selected for INRO will have the opportunity to meet with investigators from the National Institute of Allergy and Infection Diseases (NIAID) to discuss training opportunities in allergic, immunologic, and infectious disease research. If offered a position in an NIAID laboratory, the student will be supported for a 1-year postbaccalaureate Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA). For more information, please see this digital flyer (inro-2022-flyer-jpg_original.jpg)

Applicants eligible for INRO are talented graduating seniors (bachelor’s or master’s) or those who have recently completed an undergraduate or master’s degree. Through INRO, the NIAID training office sponsors postbaccalaureate trainees from U.S. populations underrepresented in the biomedical sciences and those dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion (Notice of NIH's Interest in Diversity). Individuals from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
