The Fogarty International Center is dedicated to advancing the mission of the NIH by supporting and facilitating global health research conducted by U.S. and international investigators, building partnerships between health research institutions in the U.S. and abroad, and training the next generation of scientists to address global health needs.
FIC is seeking individuals to provide scientific leadership and manage extramural global health grant portfolios in the Division of International Training and Research. One position will serve as Program Director of the HIV Research Training Program and will provide leadership for the FIC HIV portfolio. Expertise in HIV/AIDS research and research training is desired. The second position involves leadership of the Medical Education Partnership Initiative portfolio (https://www.fic.nih.gov/Programs/Pages/mepi-junior-faculty.aspx;https://www.fic.nih.gov/Programs/Pages/medical-education-africa.aspx), which promotes health professional education and faculty career development in Africa. For this position, experience in health professional education (physicians, nurses, or other health professions) is preferred.
Qualified candidates are expected to be able to work across a wide spectrum of global health research areas. Besides having the flexibility and intellectual curiosity to work across discipline boundaries, qualified individuals should also have the ability to collaborate widely, both within NIH and outside the agency, and to work effectively as both a team member and team leader. Additionally, FIC is particularly interested in individuals with research or research training experience in low- or middle-income countries and with strong interests in the development of research career pathways for scientists from low-and middle-income countries.
