INSTITUTE TRANSITION CAREER DEVELOPMENT AWARD (K22)

Release Date:  February 23, 2000

NOTICE:  CA-00-011

National Cancer Institute

In order to create equal access of postdoctoral scientists working as Federal 
employees (e.g., National Institutes of Health, Environmental Protection 
Agency) to extramural career development opportunities, the National Cancer 
Institute (NCI) announces a specialized expansion of the eligibility 
requirements of the Transition Career Development Award (K22).

This announcement establishes that postdoctoral scientists working in basic 
research as Federal employees, who have at least three years of Amentored@ 
postdoctoral research experience at the time of award, may apply for an NCI 
ATransition Career Development Award@, as long as the proposed research is 
directly relevant to human cancer.  The intent of the NCI is to provide 
postdoctoral candidates under Federal employment an opportunity for further 
career development similar to what is currently available to extramural 
postdoctoral scientists through the NCI  Howard Temin Award (K01).  
Applications for this specialized K22 award would be evaluated concurrently 
with and by the same standards as applications for the Howard Temin Award.  
More detailed information about the K22 and the Howard Temin Award is
