Wanted: Developmental and Cellular Processes Branch Chief


UPDATE: This position is now closed.

We’re recruiting an outstanding individual to serve as branch chief within our Division of Genetics and Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (GMCDB). This person will oversee the scientific and administrative management of the Developmental and Cellular Processes (DCP) Branch and will be responsible for supervising program officials and advising, directing, and evaluating program activities for a portfolio of research grants in one of the Branch areas.

The GMCDB Division supports research to understand the structure and function of cells and cellular components and the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie inheritance, gene expression, and development. The DCP Branch focuses on the genetic and biochemical pathways that cells utilize in development and in normal physiological processes. The research supported by the Branch spans the spectrum from the genetic basis of development and cell function to biochemical signaling pathways that underlie normal cell physiology. 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.

This position is included in the global recruitment for Health Science Administrators, which will open on January 18 and close on January 27. For additional information about this position, see the announcement on the NIGMS website. In preparing an application, our webpage on applying for scientific administration jobs at NIGMS may offer useful information.
