As Clinical Director, you will chart a course and allocate resources for clinical research; recruit and oversee the activities of clinical staff and fellows; ensure appropriate design and conduct of clinical research protocols; and facilitate the integration of CAM practices into the training programs and delivery of care throughout the NIH Clinical Center.
As Senior Investigator, you will have substantial committed resources to create a cutting-edge program of clinically oriented laboratory research and clinical studies that exploit neuroscience disciplines to define the nature, mechanisms of action, safety, and efficacy of diverse CAM modalities that affect actions and interactions linking mind, body, and behavior.
