Tenure in the NIH Intramural Research Program
The concept of tenure in intramural research has evolved gradually over the years as a policy and process to ensure the highest attainable quality in the scientific staff engaged in intramural research and related medical care. The conferring of tenure in intramural research is a vote of confidence in the achievements and potential of the candidate, and the research support which is implied by that decision requires that it be made with maximum care.

In 1991, the Scientific Directors began working on a Tenure Program for the NIH; it was formalized in 1993 and updated most recently in 1996. For further information about the meaning of tenure at the NIH, please see the Senior Investigator Intramural Professional Designation (IPD) page.
