46th Year of Developing Leaders
Management Intern Program Recruits

Outstanding men and women interested in pursuing a career in public service are encouraged to apply for the 2003 NIH Management Intern (MI) Program. Entering its 46th year, the program — a highly competitive 2-year rotational training opportunity — has been successful in identifying and training future NIH leaders to manage in the public sector. It offers an opportunity to explore different administrative career fields, gain invaluable insight and train for leadership roles. Recruitment will open on Feb. 10 and close on Mar. 10. Up to five MIs will be selected. Positions are offered at the GS-5/9 levels; the program has a career ladder with potential to the GS-12 level, depending on the candidate's grade at time of selection.

MIs complete assignments that introduce them to potential administrative career tracks in grants and contracts management, information technology, human resources management, central service management, science policy, program and management analysis, public liaison, legislative analysis, budget and finance, communications and public information and education.

To be eligible to apply, candidates must be U.S. citizens willing to work full time and currently employed by the Department of Health and Human Services at the GS-5 level or above, or wage grade equivalent on a career or career-conditional appointment that offers noncompetitive conversion during the application period.

The application process and the schedule of information sessions can be found online at http://internships.info.nih.gov. Applications cannot be submitted until Feb. 10. For more information contact Carol Storm, 402-3383.
