The Physical Disabilities Branch of the National Institutes of Health,
Department of Health and Human Services, seeks to recruit a dynamic senior
clinical rehabilitation scientist to direct and expand a world-class
clinical rehabilitation research program at the National Institutes of
Health in Bethesda, Maryland. The Physical Disabilities Branch (PDB) is a
member of the intramural research community at the National Institutes of
Health. The Branch currently resides in the world's largest research
hospital and will be transitioning to new state-of-the-art facilities in the
spring of 2004 (see links below).

The Medical Director will have the principal responsibility for:
* effectively directing a productive clinical rehabilitation
research program pertinent to the study of human motion
* spearheading interdisciplinary rehabilitation research
* providing medical expertise in one or more specialized areas
related to neuromusculoskeletal disorders and their functional sequelae
* developing and directing a clinical research training
* providing day-to-day operational oversight of the Human
Movement Disorders (HMD) section
An aggressive growth plan has the PDB expanding over the next 2 years. The
Medical Director will be one of several new positions scheduled to enhance
our current team of 16 engineers, therapists, post docs and investigators.
The HMD is dedicated to conducting translational and clinical rehabilitation
research, including collaborative research initiatives at both national and
international levels. To date, HMD research has demonstrated a strong
technological influence. The successful candidate will take advantage of
the significant resources and opportunities available to create a
flourishing environment for the expansion of the clinical aspects of
rehabilitation research in the section. While applicants with expertise in
all facets of rehabilitation medicine are encouraged, special consideration
will be given to candidates with experience in clinical movement analysis
and a demonstrated proficiency in pediatric neuromusculoskeletal and
developmental disabilities. Physicians with training in physical medicine
and rehabilitation, orthopedics, pediatrics and developmental medicine, or
neurology/neurorehabilitation are sought.
This position is open only to citizens of the United States and will remain
open until filled. A Doctor of Medicine degree from a school in the United
States or Canada, approved by a recognized accrediting body in the year of
the applicant's graduation is required. Candidates must have a permanent,
