Work with Me Here (Really!)


Are you someone who is interested in making an impact on the future of the biomedical research enterprise? If so, we may have the perfect opportunity for you! We are hiring a deputy director to work with us to lead the NIH Office of Extramural Research (OER). In addition to being the second authority for the OER, the deputy director serves as the director of the OER Office of Planning, Analysis and Communication as well as NIH’s extramural research integrity officer.

This is an opportunity to be part of one of the most interesting offices in NIH. Truly. Instead of focusing on a particular area of science, OER looks at the entire research enterprise, how we know it is working and how we can make it work better. Our focus on public accountability, program stewardship, scientific integrity, and providing the infrastructure for NIH’s extramural research programs allows for the broadest of impacts. If you want to join a team who is thinking strategically about results-based accountability and new and transformative ways of doing business, look no further. Applications are due by January 19.

Please see below for details of the posting. There is no indication that the application deadline has been extended.
