The goal of the Informatics program is to promote development and use of informatics in an integrative approach toward understanding normal processes of human biology and disease processes. Informatics awards support career development of scientists engaged in research that significantly integrates state-of-the-art information technology developed with advanced biological, chemical, and pharmacological sciences in the following areas: Genetics, Proteomics, Molecular, Systems Biology, Medical (human), Pathways and Networks, Pharmaco-, Integrative Biology, Population, Modeling and Simulation, Genomics, Molecular Epidemiology, Functional, Structural, Toxico-, Pharmaco-, and Comparative. Those holding academic rank of assistant professor (or research assistant professor) within a tenure track (or research track) appointment, i.e., not instructor, are eligible to apply providing their proposed research is neither directly nor indirectly subsidized to any significant degree by an extramural support mechanism. This program is not intended for those in postdoctoral training. However, individuals in postdoctoral training programs scheduled to conclude by January 1, 2018, who will hold an academic appointment by that time may apply. Application deadline is September 1, 2017.
