NIH-wide recruitment for Principal Investigators

The NIH Intramural Research Program has launched a first-of-its-kind NIH-wide recruitment for Principal Investigators (PIs). This represents an unprecedented cooperation between all NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) with intramural programs to recruit the best available biomedical researchers (laboratory-, clinic- or population-based). We hope to attract a diverse group of highly qualified applicants, many of whom might not apply to ads focused on a particular area. We expect to hire approximately 10 PIs through this mechanism.

Selectees for these PI positions will be designated “Earl Stadtman Investigators,” after the late Dr. Earl Stadtman of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). In addition to being an outstanding research scientist, Dr. Stadtman was a mentor to multiple Nobel Laureates and members of the National Academy of Sciences. We hope that these investigators will carry on his fine tradition.

To Apply: Complete applications should be received by November 1, 2009; however, applications will be accepted until available positions are filled. Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a three-page description of proposed research, and contact information for three references (who will be automatically Emailed for letters of recommendation) through our online application system, at No paper applications will be accepted.

Specific questions regarding this recruitment effort may be directed to Dr. Roland Owens, Assistant Director, NIH Office of Intramural Research at The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.
