Tenure-Track/Tenure-Eligible Investigator

Laboratory of Infectious Diseases National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases National Institutes of Health Department of Health and Human Services

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a major research component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is recruiting a tenure-track/tenure-eligible investigator in the Laboratory of Infectious Diseases (LID) for the Division of Intramural Research (DIR).

We are seeking an outstanding individual to develop a vigorous independent program focused on human virology that includes viral pathogenesis, with a preference for work related to the development of vaccines or antivirals. Applicants must have an M.D., Ph.D., or M.D./Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree in a relevant field with extensive postdoctoral experience, as well as a strong publication record demonstrating potential for creative research. The ideal candidate should have expertise in human virology and/or viral immunology and will be expected to develop a vigorous research program that includes basic and translational research on medically relevant viruses or vaccine immunology. The incumbent will also benefit from unique opportunities to interact with other members of LID and DIR who perform basic and translational research on viruses and other infectious diseases.

The incumbent will have access to state-of-the-art core research support and the NIH Clinical Center, a premier research hospital on the main NIH campus. Candidates will be assigned independent resources including laboratory support personnel, equipment, space, and an allocated annual budget for services, supplies, and salaries sufficient to foster success. Additional information about LID is available online at www.niaid.nih.gov/research/lab-infectious-diseases. 

Salary is commensurate with experience and accomplishments. A full civil-service package of benefits (including retirement; health, life, and long-term care insurance; Thrift Savings Plan) is available.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae (CV), bibliography, and two- to three-page description of the proposed research program. Additionally, three letters of reference must be sent directly from the referees. Please include in the CV a description of mentoring and outreach activities in which you have been involved, especially those involving women and persons from other groups underrepresented in biomedical research. All application materials should be submitted to Dr. Sarah Cavanaugh at NIAIDDIRSearch@niaid.nih.gov.

Completed applications will be reviewed starting November 3, 2019 and will be accepted until the position is filled. For additional information about the position, please contact Dr. Sarah Cavanaugh, DIR Program Support Staff, at sarah.cavanaugh@nih.gov.  Interested candidates may also contact Dr. Jeffrey Cohen, Chief, LID, at 301-496-5265 or jcohen@niaid.nih.gov for additional information about this position.
