The NIH Training Center has announced its recruitment season for management interns. The Management Intern Program has been grooming and developing
highly motivated NIH employees for more than 50 years. This 2-year career development program gives employees the opportunity to take rotations of 3 to 6 months in various career tracks in NIH public service. Graduates of the program
move into new career paths and many former interns have gone on to hold high-level managerial positions at NIH.
Management interns gain insight into the inner workings of NIH in career tracks in budget and finance, program and management analysis, grants management,
contracts/procurement, information technology, human resources and general administration as well as other areas such as science policy and communications. Applicants will be considered from both the administrative and scientific realms, from travel planners to biologists. The ideal candidate should be looking to gain skills in project management and evaluation, analysis
and presentation, negotiation, problem-solving, communication and leading
