Additional Information

All interested fellows are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Individual sessions to review a job application or CV will be pre-registered in 20 minute blocks. Email Lori Conlan ( to sign up for a one-on-one session. We will assign appointment slots on a first come first serve basis. We will notify you of your timeslot by Dec 9.

OITE also reviews research statements, but these take considerably longer, so you can make an appointment to visit them on main campus for this service!

Lunch will not be provided, but there is a full service cafeteria on site (cash only), and the location is within walking distance of several commercial restaurants, including Starbucks, Chipotle, and La Madeleine.

Free transportation to and from main campus is available by taking the Executive Plaza shuttle bus. For more information, visit the NIH Office of Research Services website
