UPDATE: This position is now closed.
We’re recruiting for an accomplished scientist to manage research grant, fellowship, training, and other types of awards focused on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying inheritance, gene expression, and development. The position is in our Division of Genetics and Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. Job responsibilities involve working collaboratively with other staff to stimulate, plan, advise, direct, and evaluate program activities for a portfolio of research awards.
Applicants should have expertise in cell biology and/or developmental genetics, as well as a doctoral degree in one of the sciences underlying these research areas. 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.
The position will be included in the Global Recruitment: Recruiting for all of NIH. There are two GS-12/13/14 HSA (Program Officer) vacancy announcements: one for federal employees (candidates with current or former federal employment status) and one for the public (candidates without such status). The announcements open on November 9 and close on November 13.
In preparing an application, the webpage on applying for scientific administration jobs at NIGMS may offer other useful information. You also may find the NIGMS tip sheet [PDF] for global recruitments helpful. We encourage all interested candidates to see our job vacancies webpage or contact me to ask questions about this position or Clau Gonzalez to inquire about the recruitment process.
