ONC is looking for a few good--Entrepreneurs

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is looking to fill two paid, mid-to-senior level 13-month fellowships for its HHS Entrepreneurs-In-Residence (EIR) Program. The positions are in the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and the Center for Program Integrity (CPI) in the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The EIR program, based out of the HHS IDEA Lab, recruits external talent to fill crucial skill-set gaps on teams within HHS working on high-impact/high-priority projects. EIRs have the opportunity to apply their entrepreneurial abilities in a government setting, tackle pressing health and human services challenges, and help foster a culture of innovation within HHS. EIRs also gain access to the internal and external HHS IDEA Lab alumni network. Most HHS EIRs have come from non-government backgrounds.

The HHS IDEA Lab is looking to fill these positions as soon as possible. Applications are currently being accepted. Click here to apply.

The HHS IDEA Lab provides a space and set of initiatives to seed, support and accelerate operational innovation within the Department to better achieve its mission in service to the public.
