NIMH Specific Information:

The NIMH supports a broad spectrum of basic and translational research, including basic neuroscience, human genetics, adult and developmental translational research, services and intervention research, and AIDS-related research (http://www.nimh.nih.gov/about/organization/nimh-extramural-research-programs.shtml). 

  • Eligibility for the K23 is limited to individuals with no more than 6 years of postdoctoral experience at the time of application (either the initial or resubmission application). The NIMH will generally limit support to no more than 4 years. The requested duration of support should be appropriately justified, taking into consideration prior research experience and the proposed mentored career development goals that are essential for developing an independent, NIMH-funded research program. See NOT-MH-13-001 and http://www.nimh.nih.gov/funding/training/career-development-programs-k-series.shtml for further details about NIMH's support for K programs.
  • An application must include a strong and credible plan for the candidate's transition to research independence, including milestones, and evidence of significant institutional commitment to the continued development of the K23 candidate as an independent researcher at the applicant institution. Applicants are expected to plan to apply for independent research support during the later years of their mentored career award.
  • It is recommended that NIMH mentored K applicants proposing research experience with clinical trials review the following guidance: (http://www.nimh.nih.gov/funding/training/career-development-programs-k-series.shtml#12).
  • Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Institute career development staff (http://www.nimh.nih.gov/funding/training/contacts-for-research-training-and-career-development-programs.shtml) before preparing an application to discuss the relevance of the proposed research to the Institute's current research priorities and for guidance on the proposed research and career development plans.
  • Candidates (other than neurosurgeons) must devote a minimum of 75% full time professional effort to research and career development activities associated with the K award. Neurosurgeons must devote a minimum of 50% full time professional effort to research and career development activities associated with the K award.
