Intern Program Seeks New Recruits

Entering its 47th year, the NIH Management Intern Program — a competitive 2-year training opportunity — is seeking outstanding men and women interested in a career in public service to apply for the 2004 MI Program. The program offers an opportunity to explore different administrative career fields, gain invaluable insight into NIH and train for future administrative leadership positions.

The program will be open for applications through Tuesday, Mar. 2. NIH will select up to three participants for the 2004 program. 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.

The program uses rotational assignments to introduce interns to potential career tracks. Participants accept management trainee positions and receive training in a variety of administrative fields including budget and finance, public information and education, program planning and evaluation, grants and contracts, public liaison and legislative analysis, program administration, information technology, human resources management and human capital management, central service management, science policy, program and management analysis, general administration, and public affairs and communications.

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