Earl Stadtman Investigator Program
The NIH Intramural Research Program annually considers candidates to be named Earl Stadtman Investigators. These tenure-track level positions are for creative, independent thinkers eager to take on innovative, high-impact research. Applicants are asked to share their ideas for a novel research program, their career aspirations, and how they would contribute to the NIH mission.
Search committees composed of subject-matter experts review and evaluate applicants based on the following criteria: publication record, potential scientific impact of current and proposed research, scientific vision, demonstrated independence, and honors and awards. Selected applicants are nominated as candidates for Earl Stadtman tenure-track positions. The Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) then selects candidates that fit its research areas to interview and to present seminars open to the public. After that step, the DCEG leadership chooses some or all of those candidates for hire based on the Division’s research requirements and funding.
