The National Institutes for Health is looking for an experienced leader to plan, implement, and evaluate high impact programs that foster transformational discoveries and establish catalytic resources through the NIH Common Fund. This is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with senior leaders at the NIH and across the biomedical/behavioral research community to articulate cross-cutting research challenges, to identify emerging opportunities to overcome these barriers, and to implement bold and innovative programs.

As Deputy Director of the Office of Strategic Coordination (OSC), you will support all activities required to manage the NIH Common Fund, with emphasis on program planning and management. These programs are trans-NIH in nature and designed to have a broad and significant scientific and technological impact on biomedical and behavioral research. You will establish collaborative relationships within the NIH, with other federal agencies, with the biomedical research community, and with the private sector. These relationships will inform your work as you provide executive and managerial leadership for CF programs. Successful candidates will have broad scientific knowledge and extensive management experience. They will be familiar with NIH administrative processes and policies and will have demonstrated ability to work across organizational boundaries. Clinical and/or translational research experience is desirable, but not required. Outstanding communication, teamwork and executive leadership skills are required. In addition, strong program management and relationship building skills are essential to the formulation of initiatives, resources, and policies that promote transformational research.

 We are looking for applicants with senior-level experience who have a commitment to excellence and the energy, enthusiasm, and innovative thinking necessary to lead a dynamic and diverse organization. The successful candidate for this Title 42 position will be appointed at a salary commensurate with his/her qualifications. Full Federal benefits will be provided including leave, health and life insurance, long-term care insurance, retirement, and savings plan (401k equivalent). As a condition of employment, all federal employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. For more information, visit the Safer Federal Workforce page on vaccines
