  • NIH All About Grants Podcasts: What Early Career Researchers Should Know

    What Early Career Researchers Should Know (Part 1) – the Hidden Curriculum


    Embarking on a career in biomedicine is more than doing experiments and writing NIH grant applications. How does one early in their research career learn about these other important skills, and what exactly are they? 


    This episode of a two-part NIH All About Grants Podcast mini-series explores the “hidden curriculum” for early career researchers. Our conversation features hosts of two NIH podcasts that delve into topics of interest for researchers seeking independence and other considerations related to career progression. The guests are podcasters Dr. Oliver Bogler, host of Inside Cancer Careers from the National Cancer Institute, and Dr. Lauren Ullrich, co-host of Building Up the Nerve from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Here we will relay experiences and lessons learned on finding the right mentor, importance of open communication, networking, career progression and opportunities, and much more. 


    “We know that education in general, it’s not only what you learn in the formal classroom, but it’s also this other hidden curriculum that’s the values, and the beliefs, and the behaviors, and all these pieces of scientific culture that are implicitly there. What are the norms and practices of being a scientist?” – Dr. Lauren Ullrich 


    “one of the themes that comes out is the importance of connecting with other people that can help you find that right insight, guide you in the projects you’re doing, or in the hidden curriculum…How do you build those relationships? How do you get those jobs? And, how do you get those grants and papers published?” – Dr. Oliver Bogler


    Stay tuned until the very end of our conversation to catch a trailer for Inside Cancer Careers as well. In part 2, we will discuss knowing more about yourself and your research as you consider applying for NIH support.

    2. Opportunities for students to complete apprenticeships, internships, career mentoring experiences, or other participatory learning experiences. 


    Projects are to develop students’ analytical, interpersonal, leadership, communication, problem-solving, computational, and decision-making skills and abilities. Projects that focus on integrated, multidisciplinary, learner-centered instruction should be considered. Furthermore, projects are expected to reach large audiences efficiently and effectively; reinforce recent research on how to motivate students to learn, retain, apply, and transfer knowledge, skills, and competencies; and integrate and synthesize knowledge from several disciplines. 


    1. Faculty Preparation and Enhancement for Teaching: Projects should advance faculty development in the areas of teaching competency, subject matter expertise, pedagogy, responsiveness to changes in student demographic composition and learning styles, and student recruitment and advising skills. Training of faculty must be relevant to the identified educational needs of students. Any individual recipient of federal funds must be an "eligible participant" as defined in the definitions section of this RFA (Appendix III). 


    Examples of eligible projects in this Need Area include activities that enable teaching faculty to:

    1. Develop a self-sustaining model for faculty professional development that better prepares new faculty for teaching careers, or provides retraining for experienced faculty;
    2. Gain experience with recent developments or innovative technology relevant to their teaching responsibilities;
    • Work with scientists or professionals in government, industry, or other colleges or universities to learn new applications in a field;
    1. Expand competence with new methods of information delivery; v. Create assessments that document student learning outcomes or that identify conceptual areas or skills particularly challenging to students, followed by appropriate changes in instructional approaches to effectively address these issues; or
    2. Increase utilization of teaching methods that address the special needs of non- traditional students or students from groups that are underrepresented in the food and agricultural sciences workforce. 


    1. Facilitating Interaction with Other Academic Institutions: This need area promotes linkages between baccalaureate degree-granting institutions to maximize the use of resources supporting outstanding education in food and agricultural sciences. Additionally, this need area supports linkages between baccalaureate degree-granting institutions, secondary, and/or 2-year postsecondary institutions to make instruction targeted at undergraduate students available to secondary students as advanced placement credit or as transfer credit from associate-degree programs into baccalaureate-level programs. Faculty research sabbaticals at other academic institutions that will enhance teaching and advising are also supported.  


    Examples of eligible projects in this Need Area may include: 

    1. Development and use of articulation agreements, 2+2 or 2+2+2 arrangements, advanced placement credit transfer, or the sharing of faculty and facilities; a project that focuses on developing and implementing comprehensive, multi-institutional practices proven to recruit and retain K-14 level students with a focus on cultivating those students to pursue a 4-year food and agricultural sciences degree. 
    2. A program to reduce duplication of similar educational resources across institutions and to increase instructional efficiencies. Examples may include multi-institutional or interstate approaches to curriculum development, faculty sharing, cross enrollments, joint degrees, regionalization of academic programs, regional and national workshops and symposia, and similar methodologies.

    This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) supports pilot work for subsequent  studies testing the effectiveness of strategies to deliver evidence-based mental health services, treatment interventions, and/or preventive interventions (EBPs) in low-resourced mental health specialty and non-specialty settings within the United States. The FOA targets settings where EBPs are not currently delivered or delivered with fidelity, such that there are disparities in mental health and related functional outcomes (e.g., employment, educational attainment, stable housing, integration in the community, treatment of comorbid substance use disorders) for the population(s) served. Implementation strategies should identify and use innovative approaches to remediate barriers to provision, receipt, and/or benefit from EBPs and generate new information about factors integral to achieving equity in mental health outcomes for underserved populations. Research generating new information about factors causing/reducing disparities is strongly encouraged, including due consideration for the needs of individuals across the life span. Applications proposing definitive tests of an implementation strategy should respond to the companion R01 announcement PAR-23-092.
