Tenure-Track Position in Bone, Cartilage or Tooth Biology, NIDCR, NIH

A tenure track position is available for a highly motivated and creative researcher in the broad area of bone, cartilage, or tooth biology to establish an independent research program at the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, NIH. Outstanding individuals will be considered who conduct in-depth research at the leading edge of basic cell/developmental/tissue biology that can ultimately be relevant to bone, cartilage or tooth, and who are interested in collaborating in the design of strategies to repair or regenerate dental, oral, or craniofacial tissues damaged or lost due to disease or trauma. Other colleagues in this area at the NIDCR Division of Intramural Research focus on discovering new concepts in research on bone, cartilage, teeth, their associated soft tissues (bone marrow, periodontal and oral tissues), and a variety of connective tissues.  (http://www.nidcr.nih.gov/research/NIDCRLaboratories/OverviewDIR/NIDCRInvestigators.htm) In addition to a strong portfolio in basic research, the Division is actively engaged in translational and clinical studies, with enhanced clinical efforts in craniofacial disorders and tissue regeneration.

The Division is located on the main intramural campus of the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland, just outside Washington, DC. On the NIH campus, ~1000 principal investigators including world-renowned experts in basic, translational, and clinical research, and ~5000 trainees pursue common goals, to seek fundamental knowledge about living systems and use that knowledge to enhance health and reduce illness. The NIH offers Principal Investigators the opportunity to mentor outstanding trainees at diverse levels, including post-baccalaureate trainees, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.

Candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D., D.D.S./D.M.D., D.V.M, D.O. or equivalent doctoral degree, as well as comprehensive, advanced training and a strong record of accomplishment. The position will be supported by a generous start-up package and ongoing independent resources commensurate with experience and programmatic needs, including positions for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral fellows, and a budget for consumables and equipment. Interested applicants should submit a single PDF document containing:  1. Curriculum Vitae (please include a brief description of expertise gained in previous positions), 2. a list of publications with the three most important items marked with (*), 3. a summary of research accomplishments and plan for future research including a core research question (three-page limit), 4. one-page statement titled Long-term Research Vision and Impact, and 5. the names and contact information of three people who may be asked to submit letters of reference. All materials should be emailed to:  Dr. Maria Morasso, Chair,  Skeletal Biology Search Committee; c/o Ms. Shirley Simpson, ssimpson@dir.nidr.nih.gov.  Review of applications will begin in October 2016, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.  It is highly recommended that applicants also apply for the Stadtman Investigators Search (http://irp.nih.gov/careers/trans-nih-scientific-recruitments/stadtman-tenure-track-investigators/application-details-for-stadtman-investigators).

Selection for this, and any other position, will be based solely on merit.  NIH does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, politics, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, age or membership or non-membership in an employee organization.

Tenure-Track Investigator in Immunology, NIDCR

A tenure track position is available for an immunologist to establish an independent research program in the Division of Intramural Research, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), NIH, DHHS. The search is particularly focused on individuals whose studies will complement but not duplicate current work in the Division.  Applications will be considered from outstanding individuals working in all areas of immunology, but are especially encouraged in the areas of inflammation, innate immunity, immune deficiencies, genetic and epigenetic immunology, and the immunology of mineralized tissues and aging.  The Division will consider applicants with a strong portfolio in basic research, but is also interested in individuals who are actively engaged in translational and clinical studies, in line with NIDCR’s expanding clinical efforts in the immunology of the dental-oral-craniofacial complex.

The NIDCR Division of Intramural Research is located on the main intramural campus of the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland, just outside Washington, DC.  The NIH campus provides a collaborative and dynamic research environment with more than 1000 principal investigators including world-renowned experts in basic, translational and clinical research. The immunology community at NIH includes many internationally renowned immunologists and represents one of the best immunology research centers in the world. The NIH offers scientists the opportunity to mentor outstanding trainees at all levels, including post-baccalaureate trainees, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows, in both basic and clinical research settings.

Candidates must have a PhD, MD, DDS/DMD, DVM, DO or equivalent doctoral degree, as well as comprehensive, advanced training and a strong record of accomplishment.  Applicants may be U.S. citizens, resident aliens, or non-resident aliens with, or eligible to obtain, a valid employment-authorization visa. The position will be supported with independent and stable resources commensurate with experience and programmatic needs, including positions for post-doctoral fellows, and a budget for consumables and equipment.  Interested applicants should submit a single PDF document containing:  1. Curriculum Vitae (please include a brief description of expertise gained in previous positions), 2. a list of publications with the three most important items marked with (*), 3. a summary of research accomplishments and plan for future research including a core research question (three-page limit), 4. one-page statement titled Long-term Research Vision and Impact. Separately, the applicants should request three referees to directly submit a letter of recommendation in PDF format. All materials should be emailed to:  Dr. Giorgio Trinchieri, Chair, NIDCR Immunology Search Committee; c/o Ms. Shirley Simpson, ssimpson@dir.nidr.nih.gov.  Review of applications will begin in early October  2016, and will continue until the position is filled.
