Trans-NIH Scientific Recruitments

When it comes to recruiting the best and brightest, the NIH attracts young scientists from all disciplines. The Intramural Research Program (IRP) provides a uniquely diverse environment that encourages and supports innovative, high-impact research. Learn about our recruitment programs that transcend Institute and Center boundaries.

Stadtman Tenure-Track Investigators

The Stadtman Investigators search is a trans-NIH effort to attract a diverse group of talented early-career scientists pursuing interests across the biomedical research spectrum.

Lasker Clinical Research Scholars

The Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program is an unprecedented “intramural–extramural” partnership between the IRP and the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation to fund top-notch physician-scientists for up to 11 years.

Early Independent Scientists

The Early Independent Scientists recruitment is the intramural component of the national NIH Director’s Early Independence Award Program, developed to support recent doctoral graduates in independent positions without the need to train further in a post-doctoral fellowship.
