Call for NIH Grant Writing Course Instructors

Research Education and the Office of the Vice President for Research are looking for highly-skilled University of Utah faculty to become NIH Grant Writing course instructors. These faculty would work closely with the VPR Office and Research Education to provide new investigators the invaluable, first-hand experience required to submit successful, career-building grants to the NIH. Faculty should have a demonstrated history of submitting successful grants to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

NIH Grant Writing Course instructors would be responsible for developing an asynchronous NIH Foundations canvas course designed to provide invaluable NIH Grant Writing information and feedback to new investigators and/or investigators working with the NIH for the first time. An NIH instructor may also have the opportunity to:

  • Lead in-depth, collaborative discussions on successful research questions & idea development;
  • Share personal proposal success as an example for faculty new to NIH
  • Provide hands-on, professional feedback on research proposal drafts; and
  • Contribute to a successful & collaborative environment of research excellence!

Development of an NIH Foundations course is a one-time, multiple week commitment (with the potential for instructor review and update on a yearly basis, if necessary). Compensation for the instructor’s efforts can be provided.

Interested faculty should have familiarity with various NIH funding mechanisms, have been funded through NIH at the R21, R01, or K-levels, and should be mid-level or senior-level faculty.

Interested faculty should complete this NIH Faculty Instructor Survey by February 28th, 2021.

Note: If you are having trouble accessing this survey, please ensure you are signed into your University of Utah G Suite account.
