    National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)

    The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking exceptional candidates for the position of Director, Division of Neuroscience and Behavior (DNB). Applicants should demonstrate senior-level experience, a commitment to excellence and the energy, enthusiasm, and innovative thinking necessary to lead a dynamic and diverse organization.  NIDA's mission is to lead the Nation in bringing the power of science to bear on drug abuse and addiction. This charge has two critical components. The first is the strategic support for research across a broad range of disciplines related to addiction. The second is ensuring the rapid and effective dissemination of research results to improve practice and inform policy related to drug abuse and addiction.  DNB supports basic and clinical biomedical neuroscience and behavioral research to address the public health problem of drug abuse and addiction. DNB accomplishes this mission by developing and supporting an extramural research program that provides an understanding of the neurobiological and behavioral mechanisms of drugs of abuse and their consequences.  The research supported by DNB provides important fundamental knowledge to prevent and/or intervene in drug abuse and addiction.  The Division has an annual budget of approximately $325 million and is comprised of four scientific branches, with a staff of approximately 30 employees.

A better understanding of why some people become addicted to drugs, how drugs change brain function, and how addiction can be prevented and reversed are important for the public health. DNB Director will have a unique and exciting opportunity to foster and support research that bridges our knowledge gaps and advances the science of addiction. He/she will work with program officials and extramural scientists to identify and develop emerging as well as underrepresented areas of basic science; to expand the scope and breath of the basic science portfolio; to develop an interdisciplinary scientific portfolio by collaborating with colleagues across divisions and across NIH; and to promote NIDA’s basic neuroscience and behavioral research agenda at national and international venues.

    In addition to direct oversight and administration of the division's programs, the DNB Director participates in and provides leadership to a number of trans-institute and trans-NIH activities. As a recognized expert, the Division Director must maintain scientific expertise over a wide spectrum of basic science related to drug abuse and addiction, including genetics, neurophysiology, chemistry, HIV/AIDS-related neuroimmunology, behavior and cognition.
