National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services. The NIAID Transition Program in Clinical Research (TPCR) provides an exceptional opportunity for physicians to gain clinical and translational research experience in the NIAID Division of Intramural Research (DIR). The program aims to increase the pool of well-trained clinical investigators who are competitive for clinical tenure-track positions. Up to three candidates per year will be selected for three- to five-year appointments as assistant clinical investigators. Applicants must have an MD or MD/PhD, be board eligible or board certified in a subspecialty (or equivalent), and qualify for credentialing by the NIH Clinical Center. Applicants should identify a DIR lab chief who will agree to host their research. Information about DIR labs and contact information for lab chiefs is available on NIAID's Division of Intramural Research website. Applications will be evaluated by a search committee composed of NIAID DIR principal investigators with clinical and basic research interests. Competitive candidates will be invited to present their research accomplishments and plans to the search committee. Participants will receive independent resources and staff and will be mentored by an NIAID senior clinical investigator. Interested candidates may contact DIR Deputy Director Dr. Karyl Barron at: 301-402-2208 or: firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information or assistance in identifying an appropriate host lab. To apply for the program, e-mail a curriculum vitae/bibliography, a research program proposal (no more than two pages), and a letter of support from the accepting NIAID lab chief by October 26, 2012, to Ms. Kimberley Pagan-Tindal at: NIAID.DIR.Search@niaid.nih.gov. In addition, send three letters of recommendation to the: Chair, Transition Program in Clinical Research Search Committee, c/o Ms. Kimberley Pagan-Tindal, by e-mail at: NIAID.DIR.Search@niaid.nih.gov or by post at: 33 North Drive, MSC 3204, Building 33, Room 1N19, Bethesda, MD 20892-1356.
