Opportunity Description:

The Butler-Williams Scholars Program provides unique opportunities for junior faculty, researchers new to the field of aging, and postdoctoral fellows to gain insight about aging research. The program offers a variety of perspectives and includes presentations, seminars, and interactive small group activities and discussions. 

Applications are sought from emerging researchers, including those who may have limited involvement in research on aging. The applicant must be a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national, or permanent resident. As an offering of the NIA Office of Special Populations, researchers with an interest in health disparities research related to aging are encouraged to apply. Applicants from diverse backgrounds, including individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and women, are always encouraged to apply for NIH support.

Qualified applicants must hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D., Dr.PH., M.D., D.O., etc.). Only applicants working in the field of aging — or actively pursuing this research field — will be considered.
