Women inside the NIH describe sex harassment.
"WASHINGTON - Women at the National Institutes of Health faced sexual intimidation and repeated disregard of their concerns for the welfare of patients in AIDS experiments, according to testimony by two senior female officers and documents gathered by investigators.

1. If you really want to get discouraged, read the messages/comments
to this article in Yahoo. The blatent misogynist attitudes comingled with hatred of gays and AIDS patients of the posters reflects why there is a problem at the NIH, which employs a cross-section of the population.

3. I do not know where to find this but try----This place was just hiring

Does not speak good for this country when science is taken over by people who think the world is 7000 years old.
