The NIEHS Trainees Assembly (NTA) is an organization coordinated and governed by NIEHS scientists-in-training and was created through the support of the NIEHS Office of the Scientific Director in order to foster the professional development of NIEHS trainees. The membership is comprised of all non-tenured/non-tenure track, non-permanent scientists training at the institute. Due to the diversity of scientists in training at the NIEHS and the broad range of training needs, the NTA organizes and sponsors a variety of activities.


  1. To organize and promote educational activities including training courses and seminars.
  2. To identify future employment opportunities in both traditional and non-traditional career paths.
  3. To assist in the orientation of new trainees.
  4. To provide an atmosphere of intercommunication among members.
  5. To act as official trainees' liaison to the NIEHS administration.


An important goal of the NTA is to make sure that you are aware of all of these events. The NTA maintains a bulletin board located in the C Mall Area (across from the mailroom) and a website which provides information about the current activities organized by the NTA.
