We’re pleased to reblog this Strategic Grantsmanship post by Kelly Byram . It is the second in a four-part series of posts about the new NIH biosketch format, which is required for grant applications submitted for due dates on or after May 25, 2015. The first part can be found here. The third and fourth parts — plus a bonus post on explaining gaps in the biosketch — will be posted over the next few weeks.

Yesterday’s post discussed how the new NIH biosketch format is raising the anxiety levels of many researchers. I stick with my assertion that the change is likely inevitable, so the strategic researcher will channel that energy currently fueling the anxiety into developing a new, strategic, biosketch in the new format. Yesterday I reviewed some basic strategic concepts behind the biosketch in general, and today I will discuss some strategies specific to the new format of the NIH biosketch.
