The NIAID Transition Program in Clinical Research 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 sub-specialty (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 the DIR website. You can see more information about the program on the Transition Program in Clinical Research website.

Applications will be evaluated by a search committee composed of 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.

Selected participants will receive independent resources and staff and will be mentored by an NIAID senior investigator. 

Interested candidates may contact DIR Deputy Director Dr. Karyl Barron at 301-402-2208 or: kbarron@nih.gov for additional information or assistance in identifying an appropriate host lab. 

To apply for this 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 Nov. 30, 2020, to Ms. Amy Collins at: amy.collins@nih.gov. In addition, send three letters of recommendation to the chair, Transition Program in Clinical Research Search Committee, c/o Ms. Amy Collins at :amy.collins@nih.gov.
