Management Intern Program Is Now Recruiting

Are you interested in a career transition or fast track at NIH? The NIH Training Center announces a new recruitment season for management interns. The Management Intern Program has been developing highly motivated NIH employees for more than 50 years. The 2-year career development program gives employees the opportunity to take rotations of 3 to 4 months in various career tracks. Graduates move into new career paths; many former interns have gone on to hold high-level managerial positions at NIH.

MIs gain valuable experience and insight into the inner workings of NIH. Career track options include budget and finance, program and management analysis, grants management, contracts/ procurement, information technology, human resources and general administration, as well as other electives such as science policy and communications. Management interns come from both the administrative and scientific fields, from travel planners to biologists. The MI Program job vacancy announcement opens on Feb. 25 and closes on Mar. 25. Current GS-7 through GS-12 NIH employees are invited to apply. For program FAQs, details and eligibility, the MI hiring process and application information, visit
