This position offers an exciting opportunity to set scientific priorities, lead change, and improve the biomedical research enterprise. The DRCB director is a key member of the NIGMS senior leadership team and supervises a staff of approximately 15 program officers.

DRCB seeks to enhance the research, research training, research infrastructure, and faculty development of institutions in states and jurisdictions that have historically received low levels of NIH support. DRCB is thus responsible for both broadening the distribution of NIH biomedical research funding and supporting the NIGMS' commitment to developing a broad and diverse biomedical research workforce. To that end, among the programs that DRCB supports are those that seek to increase the research competitiveness of faculty at resource-limited institutions and medical/health professional schools having an explicit historical mission focused on training and graduating students from historically underrepresented groups (e.g., HBCUs, TCUs, and HSIs). Additionally, DRCB programs support capacity building within communities, such as student and faculty enhancement and health research needs identified and selected by American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Tribal Communities. Lastly, DRCB supports educational activities that enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation's biomedical and clinical research needs.

The ideal candidate will have considerable research experience in biomedical science in one of the areas supported by the division, recognized research management and leadership abilities, and knowledge related to the NIGMS mission.
Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree in a field related to the division portfolio.
This position is being advertised under the Title 42 hiring authority.

Workplace Flexibilities such as Telework will be offered.
