Update from the NIH Office of the Ombudsman:
The link provided only takes people to the Merit Promotion announcement. That announcement is solely for applicants who already have federal service and are in the competitive service status. We also posted an announcement on USAJobs for the same position under Delegated Examining; which is for applicants applying from outside the federal workforce or Federal employees who do not have competitive service status. The link to that announcement is https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/458239700/ . Could you please revise the post to include both USAJobs links? This will help us expand our pool of applicants. Thank you!
