NIH Seeks Social and Behavioral Scientists For Intramural Research Positions
The National Institutes of Health is currently seeking scientists for tenure-track positions in its intramural program. According to the NIH call, the agency seeks “creative and independent thinkers eager to take on high-risk, high-impact research."
NIH will give preference to candidates who are in the early stages of their careers, and applicants who are tenured will not be considered. Candidates must have a doctoral degree and an outstanding record of research accomplishments.
Currently, NIH has about 1,200 principal investigators and 4,000 trainees in its intramural program. As a NIH Earl Stadtman Investigator, you would have the “opportunity to explore the limits of your productivity and your independence from preconceived research objectives.” Social and behavioral scientists are encouraged to apply. Applications are due October 1, 2010.
