RELEASE DATE:  June 8, 2004

PURPOSE OF THIS NOTICE

To encourage submission of applications for the NIAID Primary Caregiver 
Technical Assistance Supplements (PCTAS).

NIAID recognizes that postdoctoral scientists with young children or 
ailing parents are sometimes unable to focus completely on their 
research activities because of primary caregiver responsibilities. As a 
result productivity can be seriously compromised during this critical 
period of a young scientist’s career. Thus, NIAID has created the PCTAS 
program to provide technical support to postdocs who have primary 
caregiver responsibilities. 

Principal Investigators with NIAID research grants may apply for 
technical support for a postdoc for a period of 1-2 years. For details, 
please refer to this website: 
http://www.niaid.nih.gov/ncn/training/pctas.htm
 
NIAID will support this pilot program for two years.

Inquiries are strongly encouraged.  Opportunities to clarify any issues 
or questions from potential applicants are welcome.
