Tenure Track/Tenured Position
Basic Computational Biomedical Research, NHLBI
(deadline: May 31)
Division of Intramural Research (DIR) of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute is seeking an outstanding computational scientist to initiate and direct an independent research program on the NIH campus in Bethesda and Rockville, Md. The area of expertise of the candidate is less important than his/her demonstrated ability to conduct outstanding independent research in areas within the broad interests of the DIR. The areas of expertise may include but are not limited to: computational systems biology, computational biophysics, bioinformatics, computational chemistry, computational structural biology, computational proteomics/genomics, and cellular/molecular imaging theory. Although this position is computational in nature, limited resources are also potentially available for experimental studies.
Potential candidates are welcome to view the NHLBI DIR web pages (http://dir.nhlbi.nih.gov/
) to review the research programs and support available within the DIR. The existing faculty is an outstanding group of internationally recognized biomedical researchers covering a wide range of basic and clinical research topics complemented by the other DIR programs within NIH. Strong research core support in optical and electron microscopy, transgenic and knockout mouse production, mouse phenotyping, proteomics, genomics, and flow cytometry/cell sorting is available to the DIR faculty. Candidates can also participate in Graduate Partners Programs (http://gpp.nih.gov/
) with many academic programs around the world as a means of recruiting graduate students.
The candidate must have an M.D., Ph.D., or both and have an outstanding record of research accomplishments as evidenced by publications in major peer-reviewed journals. The position can be filled as a tenure-track or tenured position, but preference will be given to senior post-doctoral fellows or faculty who are still in the early stages of their research careers. The successful candidate will be offered a competitive salary commensurate with experience and qualifications, and will be assigned ample research space, supported positions, and an operating budget. Appointees may be US citizens, resident aliens, or non-resident aliens with or eligible to obtain a valid employment authorized visa. Applications must be received by May 31, 2008. Please submit a curriculum vitae and brief statement of research interests along with three letters of reference to: Robert S. Balaban, Ph.D., Scientific Director, NHLBI; c/o Douglas Price; Administrative Officer, NHLBI; 10 Center Drive, MSC 1670; Building 10, Room 7N220; Bethesda, MD 20892-1670.
INFLAMMATION AND CANCER
TENURE TRACK POSITION
LABORATORY OF HUMAN CARCINOGENESIS
Deadline: July 1, 2008
The Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis (LHC), http://www.nci.nih.gov/intra/lhc/lhcpage.htm
Center for Cancer Research (CCR), National Cancer Institute (NCI), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Bethesda, MD, has a long tradition of excellence in the investigation of the molecular carcinogenesis and epidemiology of human cancer. The Laboratory invites applications for a tenure track position to study the role of chronic inflammation in human cancer. The applicant should have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree; previous postdoctoral experience; a substantive record of publications in quality, peer-reviewed journals; and the potential to develop an independent research program that utilizes basic research discoveries and their translation to investigate the role of chronic inflammation in the molecular pathogenesis and progression of human cancer. Previous translational studies of cancer prone chronic inflammatory diseases and/or molecular epidemiological studies are recommended.
The position provides salary and full funding to establish an independent research program, including laboratory space, equipment, budget, technical personnel and support for fellows. Salary will be commensurate with education and experience. A one or two-page statement of research interests and goals should be submitted in addition to three letters of recommendation and a curriculum vitae/bibliography to:
Phillip A. Dennis, M.D., Ph.D.
Chair, Search Committee

Tenure Track/Tenure-Eligible Investigator
Neuro-Oncology Branch, NCI
(deadline: July 11)
The Neuro-Oncology Branch (NOB) of the National Cancer Institute, component of the National Institutes of Health, is calling for applications for a Tenure-Track/Tenure-Eligible Investigator. The overall goal of the NOB is to develop novel therapeutic strategies for the treatment of primary brain tumors through an understanding, exploitation, and eventual clinical translation of the principles underlying the molecular and genetic pathogenesis of these tumors. Our approach is to leverage the unique resources of the intramural NIH program, including its tremendous scientific and clinical freedom to explore high risk yet high pay off projects, to build an NIH-wide pre-clinical and clinical brain tumor experimental therapeutics center. NOB works collaboratively and synergistically with both the NIH extramural community as well as with the private sector to ensure the most efficient and rapid development of novel approaches to the treatment of these devastating tumors. In order to accomplish these goals, the NOB is trying to identify candidates with a broad knowledge of basic cancer biology, clinical oncology and a strong motivation for translational research in brain tumors with a particular emphasis on gliomas.
The successful candidate must have an MD or MD/Ph.D. degree and should have substantial experience (documented by an extensive publication record) in one or more of the following fields: signal transduction mechanisms, gene discovery, therapeutic target development, molecular/cellular cancer biology, cancer genetics and genomics. A preference will be given to physician scientists with a strong background in clinical medical oncology/neuro-oncology and with an emphasis in translational research. The candidate is expected to develop his/her own line of research to complement and enhance the current efforts of the NOB towards elucidating the biology of gliomas and alleviating the suffering of patients with brain tumors through the development of innovative therapeutic approaches. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
Interested applicants should submit: a letter of indicating their interest in the position; statement of research interests; career synopsis; current curriculum vitae and complete bibliography; and names and addresses of five references. Applications should be postmarked by July 11, 2008 to: Dr. Kevin Camphausen, Chair; c/o Karen Abraham; Neuro-Oncology Branch Search Committee; Bloch Building, MSC 8200, Room 237; 9030 Old Georgetown Road, Bethesda, MD 20892. DHHS, NIH, the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke are Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action employers that value and foster diversity throughout the entire organization.
