NIH Staff Scientists/Staff Clinicians Organization

Please note that the NIH Staff Scientists/Staff Clinicians is transitioning to two groups, for Staff Scientists and for Staff Clinicians. The website are underdevelopment. More information about the Staff Clinicians Council is posted at

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

The aims of the NIH SS/SC Organization are to:

  • represent all of the NIH Staff Scientists/Staff Clinicians to their Institutes and the NIH.
  • promote networking and both intra- and inter-Institute collaborations.
  • create a repository of resources and expertise provided by the SS/SC.
  • organize seminars and workshops on cutting edge and emerging technologies.
  • foster career development through seminars and workshops on management, mentoring, lab organization, databases, etc.

A Representative Committee is populated with at least one member from each IC that employs Staff Scientists and/or Staff Clinicians. These individuals serve as the point of contact for their Institute and the liaison between their Institute and the Representatives Committee. The NIH SS/SC Organization meets quarterly to achieve the above stated goals.
