Psychological scientists interested in a tenure-track research position within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will want to know about a unique opportunity to earn a position via an innovative application initiative.
Now in its 11th year, the NIH Earl Stadtman Investigators Program offers tenure-track positions to researchers conducting cutting-edge behavioral or biomedical science. These positions are housed with the NIH intramural research program, which is NIH’s internal research wing.
“The Stadtman Tenure-Track Investigators search seeks to identify talent through a broad search that can focus on specific areas of science or enable the candidates to bring their ideas to us. In short, we ask the applicants to describe their research, and—if we like what we see—we try to create a tenure-track position in one of our Institutes or Centers to match that talent,” says NIH. “Each year, we aim to hire upwards of 10 researchers through this prestigious program.”
Applicants must have a PhD or equivalent degree, plus an outstanding record of research accomplishments. To apply, individuals must submit a CV, a research goals proposal, a long-term research vision and impact statement, and contact information for references.
Applications for the Stadtman Investigators program are due September 30, 2019. References are due October 7.
