NIDCR Individual Predoctoral Dental Scientist Fellowship: - The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) seeks new Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) applications for an Individual Predoctoral Dental Scientist Fellowship (PDSF). The purpose of the PDSF is to offer an integrated dental and graduate research training program that leads to attainment of both the D.D.S./D.M.D. and Ph.D. (or equivalent) degrees. - NIDCR intends to award up to four new fellowships per year. - Awards made under this program announcement will use the F30 Individual Predoctoral Dental Scientist Fellowship mechanism to provide combined dental school and predoctoral PhD support. - By the time of award, individuals must be citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States, or must have been lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence (i.e., possess a currently valid Alien Registration Receipt Card I-551, or other legal verification of such status). - The applicant must have a baccalaureate degree and show evidence of both high academic performance in the sciences and substantial interest in research in areas of high priority to the NIDCR. The applicant must be enrolled in a DDS/DMD program at an accredited dental school, be accepted in a related scientific PhD (or an equivalent degree) program, and be supervised by a mentor who is active and established in that scientific discipline when the application is submitted. - The typical applicant will apply during the first year of dental school for funding to begin in the second year. Trainees must begin their PDSF not later than the third year of dental school. Individuals currently enrolled in a joint DDS/DMD-PhD program are eligible for consideration as trainees. Dental students who obtained a PhD prior to entering dental school and desire to pursue another research doctorate are not eligible. - The institutional setting must be domestic, and may be private (profit or nonprofit) or public. - Each applicant may submit only one application. - The Ruth L.
