(1) NIH Earl Stadtman Investigators, NIH
The National Institutes of Health, the nation's premier agency for biomedical and behavioral research, is pleased to announce the launch of its search for top-tier tenure-track candidates to become "NIH Earl Stadtman Investigators."
Earl Stadtman was an outstanding NIH scientist who mentored many current leaders in the biomedical community. In his honor, the NIH is recruiting basic, clinical and population-based investigators who seek the flexibility of scientific exploration in an intellectual and supportive environment. NIH investigators have the ability to focus on research that is high risk; they can quickly redeploy resources to explore new directions, collaborate freely on multidisciplinary teams, and contribute to the NIH mission of improving human health. The receipt of prestigious awards and honors-Nobel prizes, Lasker awards, elections to the NAS and IOM, among others - demonstrates the scientific rigor of our NIH intramural investigators.
We offer competitive startup packages and a collaborative, academic environment with more than 1,100 principal investigators engaged in cutting-edge basic, translational, clinical and population-based research. Our scientists focus entirely on their research with ample opportunities to mentor and train outstanding fellows at all levels. One special feature of our research program is the NIH Clinical Center, the world's largest hospital entirely devoted to biomedical research.
Qualifications/Eligibility: Candidates must have an M.D., Ph.D., D.D.S./D.M.D., D.V.M, D.O. or equivalent doctoral degree and have an outstanding record of research accomplishments as evidenced by publications in major peer-reviewed journals.
