of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Institutes of

    Need and Use of Information Collection: In order to create and 
administer effective training programs for a diverse research 
workforce, NINDS needs information about the factors influencing career 
choice among different populations, particularly those underrepresented 
in the neuroscience workforce. Few studies have looked into factors 
influencing career choice among biomedical science trainees and how 
those career choices are influenced by social identity (race/ethnicity, 
gender, disability, disadvantaged background, and their intersection); 
none, to our knowledge, has reported this data specifically for 
neuroscientists. In pursuit of the training mission of NINDS, the 
Office of Training, Career Development, and Workforce Diversity 
(OTCDWD) administers programs to train the next generation of 
neuroscientists and to increase diversity of the neuroscience 
workforce. The information collected from this survey will help give

trainee and potential trainee community. We are seeking a more accurate 
understanding of the career choices neuroscience trainees are making, 
and how well NINDS supports our trainees' needs and facilitates 
successful career trajectories. The survey will help improve our 
current programs, develop training opportunities, and provide 
programmatic support for current and future NINDS trainees.
