The Laboratory of Clinical Immunology and Microbiology (LCIM), Division of Intramural Research (DIR), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), is soliciting applications for a position as a staff clinician in the area of autoinflammatory diseases and immune dysregulatory diseases.

LCIM conducts clinical and basic science and epidemiologic research into human immunologic, inflammatory, and infectious diseases with an aim to develop novel diagnostic methods and therapeutic approaches to manage and, ideally, cure patients with these diseases.

An enthusiastic and highly motivated clinician will diagnose, treat, and manage patients with known and yet unknown autoinflammatory diseases. These include interferon (IFN)-mediated autoinflammatory diseases (e.g., chronic atypical neutrophilic dermatosis with lipodystrophy and elevated temperatures [CANDLE], STING-associated vasculopathy with onset in infancy [SAVI]) and interleukin (IL)-1-mediated autoinflammatory diseases (e.g., neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease [NOMID], deficiency of the IL-1 receptor antagonist [DIRA]), as well as autoinflammatory and immunedysregulatory diseases with less established etiologies. The staff clinician will be expected to take a lead role in the development and conduct of clinical protocols relevant to these patient populations at NIAID and the NIH Clinical Center, a state-of-the-art research hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. The position supports the bench-to-bedside model of LCIM, in which therapeutic and research programs are integrated by incorporating molecular genetics, exploring disease mechanisms of pathogenesis, and developing new therapeutic approaches. The staff clinician will participate in and lead protocol development and approval, clinical trial operations, clinical research, publication of research articles, and supervision of fellows, students, and residents.

The successful applicant must have an M.D. or equivalent and board certification in pediatric allergy and immunology or rheumatology. Internal medicine/pediatrics (med-peds) applicants are encouraged. An ideal candidate will have experience in clinical research and/or in conducting clinical trials. In addition, an applicant must meet the requirements for credentialing to practice as a staff physician in the NIH Clinical Center. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

To apply, submit a curriculum vitae, bibliography, and a list of three references to Dr. Raphaela Goldbach-Mansky (, LCIM/DIR/NIAID, Bethesda, MD 20892.
