The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is recruiting for a tenure-track clinical investigator to direct an innovative research program within its Intramural Research Program (IRP). The goal of this search is to identify a candidate who will enhance this collaborative environment through the development of a novel and cutting-edge clinical research program.

We are seeking a candidate who is committed to scientific excellence, and understands the intellectual benefits of collaborative research to enhance and increase emerging areas of clinical research opportunity.  Applicants must hold an MD and/or PhD or equivalent degree(s).  Criteria for selection include experience conducting clinical and translational research in the area of addiction and related disorders – preferably as they intersect with prescription opioid use and opioid use disorders and/or with research on multidisciplinary aspects of HIV – as well as experience with novel research approaches to addictive disorders, and a promising publication record.  

The selected candidate will receive independent resources from NIDA for funding start-up costs and on-going program operations, and will be responsible for managing these resources (budget, human resources, and space). NIDA will provide clinical, laboratory and office space adequate to establish an outstanding clinical research program at the Biomedical Research Center, located on the Johns Hopkins Bayview Campus located in Baltimore MD. The broader NIH campus and the NIDA’s IRP in Baltimore provide a rich and highly interactive translational neuroscience environment.  Full federal benefits are included. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Appointees may be U.S. citizens, resident aliens, or non-resident aliens with, or eligible to obtain, a valid employment authorization visa.  Interested candidates must submit a curriculum vitae, bibliography, a two-page summary of research interests, and the names and contact information (work/email addresses, phone) of three references (via pdf or Microsoft word format only – paper applications will not be accepted) to: Joshua Kysiak, Program Specialist, NIDA at kysiakjo@mail.nih.gov.

Review of applications will begin in mid-April 2018, and continue until the position is filled.  For additional information, you may contact: Karran Phillips, MD, Clinical Director, NIDA, phillipsk@nida.nih.gov.  The NIH encourages the application and nomination of qualified women, minorities and individuals with disabilities.  The HHS and NIH are equal opportunity employers.
