Medical Officer, Advanced Technologies and Surgery Branch
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) is seeking exceptional candidates for a Medical Officer position in the Advanced Technologies and Surgery Branch (ATSB) in the Division of Cardiovascular Sciences (DCVS). The ATSB manages an integrated basic and clinical extramural research program to study innovative and developing technologies for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Areas supported by ATSB include:
- Diagnostics, including proteomics, genomics and other biomarker technologies, and imaging for disease identification and therapy guidance
- Therapeutics, including tissue, cell and gene-based therapies, regenerative medicine, and development of devices for cardiovascular support and repair
- Surgery, including improved surgical and image-guided approaches, and evidence-based clinical research to translate new therapies, technologies and surgical practices into clinical use
- Enabling technologies such as bioinformatics, computational and systems biology, bioengineering, nanotechnology, and personalized medicine.
ATSB promotes the translation of promising scientific and technological findings from discovery through pre-clinical studies to clinical trials. Applicants must possess an M.D. or equivalent with experience and expertise in genetics and clinical studies and randomized clinical trials including the area of pharmacogenomics, who can help foster efforts in translation and implementation of genetic findings into the clinic. The incumbent will maintain knowledge of the area of interest and related fields, oversee a portfolio of grants and contracts, and provide critical scientific and clinical trial advice to the Branch Chief, Division Director and Institute Director. The individual will serve as the focus for coordination of this area of biomedical research supported by other NIH institutes, other government agencies and private organizations, and develop initiatives to strengthen the research portfolio. The incumbent will also participate in Institute-wide and NIH-wide committees and activities related to the scientific area of interest, and attend meetings of study sections, review committees, and Council to provide policy, technical and scientific information.
