Center for Human Immunology, Autoimmunity and Inflammation, a Trans-NIH Initiative graphic banner


Department of Health and Human Services National Institutes of Health National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute Division of Intramural Research Center for Human Immunology, Autoimmunity, and Inflammation.


The NIH Center for Human Immunology, Autoimmunity and Inflammation (CHI) is a trans-NIH initiative that studies the human immune system in health and disease using high-throughput multiplex assays and then develops novel insights into immune system function and disease by analyzing the resulting dense data sets using advanced computational approaches. CHI utilizes an integrated team of scientists to implement this translational systems approach, including clinical, laboratory, and bioinformatics scientists. Projects are developed collaboratively and are chosen for implementation by consensus.

CHI is seeking to recruit a Chief Scientific Officer. This individual will have supervisory roles at both the laboratory and larger project levels. At the research level, s/he will be oversee technical staff responsible for implementing and conducting antigen-specific T and B lymphocyte assays to complement our high-throughput technologies, such as microarrays, 15 color flow immunocyte phenotyping, multiplex analysis of serum cytokines and proteins, and SNP genotyping. At the project level s/he will contribute human biologic and immunologic insight to the choice and design of CHI research efforts and through collaboration with members of the bioinformatics group, be responsible for providing ongoing biology-based guidance of the computational analysis and interpretation of data emerging from these projects. These latter efforts will provide continuity of input to supplement that provided by the CHI leadership. The incumbent will thus have substantial responsibility for moving CHI projects forward and a signifi cant voice in the future directions of CHI.

The ideal candidate will have an M.D., D.O., Ph.D., or M.D./Ph.D. , and a strong record of accomplishment including publications in human immunology: laboratory, clinical, and translational. The candidate must be an outstanding communicator and be a collaborative team player. Experience combining biologic studies with computational analysis is highly desirable (e.g., hands-on experience with the application of bioinformatics approaches for drawing biological insights from large-scale data sets).

How to Apply: Applicants may be U.S. Citizens, resident aliens, or non-resident aliens holding or eligible for a valid employment visa. Applications must be accepted until the position is filled. Please submit a curriculum vitae and brief statement of how your experience relates to the needed qualifi cations along with 3 letters of reference to: Neal S. Young, M.D. Director CHI c/o Christen Sandoval Building 15F2 MSC 2664 NIH Bethesda MD 20892, or electronically to Christen Sandoval. Additional information about CHI is available online.

HHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers.
