Job Posting: National Institutes of Health

For the second time in a month, the NIH Office of the Ombudsman has posted an opening for a Lead Associate Ombuds position. This time, there is even a shorter application window.

Applicants must have qualifying experience, such as: "initiating, planning and conducting complex neutral third-party interventions including facilitation, mediation, or related conflict resolution methods to resolve workplace disputes; serving as a coach or related resource for an organization's managers and employees on resolving conflict; designing and delivering training on conflict resolution topics." The GS-14 position pays $108,887-$141,555 per year. The application period opened Wednesday and closes Sunday, January 15, 2017. (USAJobs.)

  1. With the hiring freeze that has been implemented, with the exception of DoD, one might correctly assume that none of the recently-advertised federal ombuds jobs are going to be filled in the near future.

  2. Opened Wednesday and closes Sunday, January 15, 2017. Alternative calendar?
