Division of Genetics and Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (GMCDB) Health Scientist Administrator (Program Director)

We are recruiting an accomplished scientist for a program director position to join the Developmental and Cellular Processes Branch (DCPB) in the Division of Genetics and Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (GMCDB). The successful applicant will be responsible for the scientific and administrative management of a portfolio of research/research training grants and will stimulate, plan, advise, direct, and evaluate program activities related to their field of expertise.

Applicants should have expertise in developmental biology, cellular and molecular biology and/or genetics, and a doctoral degree in one of the sciences underlying these research areas. Experience with using research organisms is a plus, but not required. Familiarity with NIH extramural funding as a NIH scientific administrator is a plus, and outstanding written and oral communication skills are essential.
