The Division of Intramural Research (DIR) of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) is seeking to recruit an outstanding Staff Clinician to support the clinical program of the Sickle Cell Branch (SCB), NHLBI.
The candidate for the position is to provide critical clinical services that allow the SCB to continue recruiting participants for research in various clinical protocols. The staff clinicians’ responsibilities range from seeing out- and in-patients on a daily basis, attending in rotation with other staff in the SCB and the Hematology Branch, performing data analysis, assisting with the formation of clinical protocols, and mentoring and supervising clinical fellows. The SCB conducts research to understand sickle cell disease and identify markers of disease severity with the aim of improving the lives and care of patients with sickle cell disease. Existing clinical protocols include those that are studying acute pathophysiological events during vaso-occlusive crisis using genomic techniques and those that test outcomes following novel treatments (pharmacological agents, stem cell and gene therapy). There are strong interactions with a wide range of independent research groups, and the position offers exceptional opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration within and outside of the NIH.
