Job Announcement Description

Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities (INRO) 2022 will be accepting applications from September 1 - November 22, 2021! 

Those selected for INRO will have the opportunity to meet with investigators from the National Institute of Allergy and Infection Diseases (NIAID) to discuss training opportunities in allergic, immunologic, and infectious disease research. If offered a position in an NIAID laboratory, the student will be supported for a 1-year postbaccalaureate Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA).

Applicants eligible for INRO are talented graduating seniors (bachelor’s or master’s) or those who have recently completed an undergraduate or master’s degree.
