Wanted: Biomedical Technology Branch Chief


UPDATE: This position is now closed.

We’re recruiting for an outstanding individual to serve as branch chief in our Division of Biophysics, Biomedical Technology, and Computational Biosciences (BBCB). This person will oversee the scientific and administrative management of the Biomedical Technology (BT) Branch and will be responsible for advising, directing, and evaluating program activities for a portfolio of research grants in one of the branch areas.

The BBCB Division supports the development of biophysical and computational methods and tools for understanding basic biological questions; physical and theoretical methodologies, bioinformatics tools, and sophisticated quantitative approaches to lay a foundation for advances in disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention​; and the creation of innovative tools and new technologies for the study of macromolecular, cellular, and organelle processes and function. The BT Branch focuses on developing innovative technologies for biomedical research that include computational infrastructure, molecular and cellular imaging and dynamics, and technologies to elucidate structural and functional biology. The Branch also supports biomedical technology research resources. Candidates should have expertise in any area of research supported by the Branch. Familiarity with NIH extramural funding as an applicant, reviewer, or NIH scientific administrator is a plus, and outstanding written and oral communication skills are essential.
