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.
- John Carol Eberhart, Ph.D. (December 30, 1987)
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.
