NIAID offers clinical and laboratory research training programs for students and postdoctoral fellows. Programs include accredited medical fellowship training in allergy and immunology and in infectious diseases. Applications for available NIAID postdoctoral fellowship positions can be submitted online.

Office of Training and Diversity

The Office of Training and Diversity (OTD) in the NIAID Division of Intramural Research conducts outreach programs to recruit students interested in exploring careers in biomedical research. OTD also designs and conducts training programs to promote diversity in NIAID laboratories. These programs include the following:

  • Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities (INRO)
    INRO is the NIAID annual program for underrepresented minority students interested in exploring career opportunities in allergy, immunology, and infectious diseases.
  • Summer Internship Program in Biomedical Research
    The Summer Internship Program in Biomedical Research and its sister program, the Summer Research Fellowship Program, offer students the unique opportunity to join one of the NIAID research laboratories for a minimum of eight weeks from May through September.

Special Training Programs

  • Malaria Infection Biology Research and Training Program
    This program offers top young scientists opportunities to explore the complex interactions between Plasmodium falciparum and the host immune system. It aims to uncover critical new knowledge about these cellular and molecular interactions and to train the next generation of research scientists in this new and exciting field.
  • NIH Oxford Cambridge Scholars Program
    This program offers accelerated, individualized doctoral training for outstanding science students committed to biomedical research. It enables students to undertake a collaborative project in any area of biomedical investigation involving two mentors: one at the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland, and one at either Oxford or Cambridge University in England.
  • Transition Program in Clinical Research
    This program provides opportunities for physicians to gain clinical and translational research experience in association with a laboratory in the NIAID Division of Intramural Research. The program aims to increase the pool of well-trained clinical investigators who are competitive for clinical tenure-track positions.
