Notice Number: NOT-OD-16-080
Release Date: March 23, 2016
This Notice informs the biomedical and health services research communities that in accordance with NOT-OD-16-004, the biosketch instructions and format pages have been updated. The updated instructions and formats should be used for application due dates on or after May 25, 2016.
Updates to the biosketch instructions will include:
The FORMS-D application instructions will be posted on March 25, 2016. They will have a single set of biosketch instructions and a link to the new format page for use with all mechanisms. This information will also be available from the NIH Forms page.
We encourage researchers to try the Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae (SciENcv) as a tool to build their biosketches.
SciENcv pulls information from available resources making it easy to develop a repository of information that can be readily updated and modified to prepare biosketches for submission to multiple agencies. A YouTube video provides instructions for using SciENcv. Support for fellowship application biosketches will be available in SciENcv later this year.
