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:

NIAID will support this pilot program for two years.


Please direct all inquiries to:

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