Division of Translational Research

National Institute of Mental Health

Department of Health and Human Services

 

The Division of Translational Research (DTR) at NIMH directs, plans, and supports programs of research and research training that translate knowledge from basic science to discover the etiology, pathophysiology, and trajectory of mental disorders and develop effective interventions for children and adults. DTR supports integrative, multidisciplinary research in the following areas: the phenotypic characterization and risk factors for psychiatric disorders; neurobehavioral mechanisms of psychopathology; trajectories of risk and resilience; and design and testing of innovative neuromodulatory, psychosocial and psychopharmacological interventions. The Division is looking for motivated individuals to serve as a Program Officer for the Adult Mood and Anxiety Disorders program. The selected candidate(s) will stimulate, plan, advise, and direct program activities for a portfolio of research projects. Competitive candidates are expected to be accomplished scientists with a good understanding of how biomedical research is performed and expertise in adult mood and anxiety psychopathology and psychosocial/behavioral interventions. A publication record, prior research experience, and evidence of a familiarity with current literature in behavioral neuroscience related to mental illness are essential.

This position requires working both independently and collaboratively. Strong organizational, oral, written and communication skills are also required. Salary will be commensurate with the experience of the candidate. A full package of federal Civil Service benefits is available, including: retirement, health and life insurance, long term care insurance, leave, and a Thrift Savings Plan (401K equivalent). The successful candidate is subject to a background investigation and public financial disclosure requirements.

 Qualifications

Applicants must be U.S. Citizens and have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in an accredited college university, including acceptance of the dissertation, in an academic field of the health or pertinent sciences allied to health or health related research.
