A recent paper by Dr. Roland A. Owens and a colleague at the NIH National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases has made a significant step towards the elucidation of the mechanisms involved in the integration of adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV2) into the human genome (J. Virol.81:9718-9726).

Dr. Owens' current research focuses on adeno-associated virus type-2, a virus that is being developed as a vehicle for human gene therapy to treat diabetes, as well as many other diseases. His group's identification of the DNA sequence bound by the replication proteins of adeno-associated virus has led to the current models for integration and gene regulation mediated by these proteins. Dr. Owens is a co-inventor on two patents involving AAV gene therapy applications. Dr. Owens has been an ASM member since 1993 and served on the editorial board of Journal of Virology from 1997 to 2002. He has been very active in the mentoring of minority scientists and in 2002 was selected as Mentor of the Year by the UMBC Meyerhoff Scholarship Program. He also served as President of the NIH Black Scientists Association in 1998.

"Right now we have about 110 postdoctoral fellowships being advertised at our training website ( www.training.nih.gov)," says Roland Owens, chief recruiter for the NIH intramural research program. "We usually also encourage people to make direct contact with a principal investigator if they are looking for a postdoctoral position," he adds. Owens recommends that contact with a prospective principal investigator about a postdoctoral position should be made at least six months before the desired start date.
An effective way to find out information on postdoctoral positions at the NIH, Owens says, is to go to the annual report listings at intramural.nih.gov/search/index.tml. At that webpage, the annual reports can be searched by keyword.

Just about every Nobel Prize winner in Physiology or Medicine for the past 20 years has visited the NIH," Owens says. "Most of the members of the National Academy of Sciences who are in the biomedical research area come to talk, and we make special opportunities for postdoctoral fellows to have lunch with the big-name speakers that come in."
Owens also points out that about 20 people at the NIH, in the office of intramural training, are assigned to determine how to enhance the careers and skills of research fellows, with most of the institutes having their own training specialists. "We offer courses in how to write grants, how to get a job, how to get CVs up to speed, how to handle interviews, all sorts of things that smaller institutions might not be able to provide," Owens says.
...
At the NIH, Owens says that 40 hours a week is the minimum, "but many people will put in 60-hour weeks. He admits that it can sometimes be a little hard for people who "want to have a life outside of science, but we're trying to figure out how to balance the whole work/family issue," he says.
