National Institutes of Health Staff Scientists/Staff Clinicians Organization

The NIH Staff Scientists/Staff Clinicians (SS/SC) Organization was conceived in 2004 to represent more than one thousand staff scientists and clinicians at the NIH, irrespective of hiring mechanisms (e.g. GS-level, Commissioned Corps, Title 42, or Contractor). Every NIH Staff Scientist and Staff Clinician is therefore represented by this organization.

To receive communications from the organization, register your name by sending a message with the subject 'subscribe' to the NIH SSSC listerv moderator. The member list on this site is not longer active.

The vision of the NIH SS/SC Organization is to:

  • represent all of the NIH Staff Scientists/Staff Clinicians to Bldg 1.
  • promote networking and inter-institute collaborations.
  • create a repository of resources and expertise of SS/SC.
  • organize seminars/workshops on cutting edge or emerging technologies.
  • foster career development through seminars/workshops on management, mentoring, lab organization, databases, visa regulations for foreign scientists, etc.
The committee has just been fully populated with at least one representative from each IC that employs Staff Scientists and/or Staff Clinicians. These individuals will serve as the point of contact for their Institute and the liaison between their Institute and the Representatives Committee.

A list of representatives can be found at the representatives tab. Alternatively contact Rodolfo Ghirlando, the website moderator, or Christophe Marchand, the group moderator, to learn who your representative is.  You should contact your IC representative if you have any concerns that you feel should be addressed by our committee.

NOTE - Dr. Gottesman's presentation of 09/19/2011 to the NIH SS/SC Town Hall meeting can be obtained here.
