The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is recruiting for a tenure-track clinical investigator to direct an innovative research program within its Intramural Research Program (IRP). The goal of this search is to identify a candidate who will enhance this collaborative environment through the development of a novel and cutting-edge clinical research program.
We are seeking a candidate who is committed to scientific excellence, and understands the intellectual benefits of collaborative research to enhance and increase emerging areas of clinical research opportunity. Applicants must hold an MD and/or PhD or equivalent degree(s). Criteria for selection include experience conducting clinical and translational research in the area of addiction and related disorders – preferably as they intersect with prescription opioid use and opioid use disorders and/or with research on multidisciplinary aspects of HIV – as well as experience with novel research approaches to addictive disorders, and a promising publication record.
The selected candidate will receive independent resources from NIDA for funding start-up costs and on-going program operations, and will be responsible for managing these resources (budget, human resources, and space). NIDA will provide clinical, laboratory and office space adequate to establish an outstanding clinical research program at the Biomedical Research Center, located on the Johns Hopkins Bayview Campus located in Baltimore MD. The broader NIH campus and the NIDA’s IRP in Baltimore provide a rich and highly interactive translational neuroscience environment. Full federal benefits are included. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
Appointees may be U.S. citizens, resident aliens, or non-resident aliens with, or eligible to obtain, a valid employment authorization visa. Interested candidates must submit a curriculum vitae, bibliography, a two-page summary of research interests, and the names and contact information (work/email addresses, phone) of three references (via pdf or Microsoft word format only – paper applications will not be accepted) to: Joshua Kysiak, Program Specialist, NIDA at email@example.com.

About National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is dedicated to understanding the causes, consequences and treatment of drug abuse. To meet this challenge, NIDA runs a research facility (Intramural Research Program, IRP) in East Baltimore whose mission is to better understand drug abuse and the many factors which may contribute to this enormous societal problem. We at NIDA understand the personal devastation caused by drug abuse and addiction, as well as its destruction of families and communities. Through research we hope to better understand the causes of this problem and develop new and more effective treatments.
The mission of the Intramural Research Program (IRP) of the National Institute on Drug Abuse is to conduct state-of-the-art research on basic mechanisms that underlie drug abuse and addiction, and to develop new methods for the treatment of drug abuse and addiction. Research is supported at the molecular, genetic, cellular, animal, and clinical levels and is conceptually integrated, highly innovative, and focused on major problems in the field. The long-term goal of the research is to better understand the biological and ...behavioral factors contributing to initiation, maintenance, and elimination of drug abuse and addiction (and associated diseases), and to translate this knowledge into improved strategies for preventing, treating, and reducing the negative consequences for the individual and for society caused by drug abuse and addiction. An important aspect of the program is the training of young investigators and career development of more experienced investigators in basic and clinical sciences related to drug abuse research.
