The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) 
at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will award National Research 
Service Award (NRSA) Individual Postdoctoral Fellowships (F32) to 
promising applicants with the potential to become productive, 
independent investigators in fields related to the mission of the  
NIBIB.  To facilitate these awards, the NIBIB will participate in NIH 
program announcement (PA) PA-00-104 titled "National Research Service 
Awards for Individual Postdoctoral Fellows (F32)" (released June 1, 
2000).  This PA provides specifications for the NIH F32 program 
including eligibility requirements, application procedures, and review 
criteria.  The purpose of the NRSA program is to ensure that a diverse 
and highly-trained workforce is available to assume leadership roles in 
the national biomedical research agenda.   

Consistent with the mission of the Institute, the NIBIB will make F32 
awards in areas associated with bioengineering, biomedical imaging, and 
multi-disciplinary research aimed at addressing problems in biology and 
medicine.  Before a NRSA postdoctoral fellowship can be activated, an 
individual must have received a doctoral degree (e.g.; Ph.D., M.D., 
Sc.D., etc.) from an accredited institution.    

Dates for applications to be received at the NIH in response to this 
notice are April 5, August 5, and December 5 annually.  

Applications will be reviewed by the Center for Scientific Review with 
regard to NIH criteria for F32 fellowship awards.
