Title 5 - GS

Title 5 - The General Schedule (GS) -- This Civil Service mechanism is a mechanism to hire tenured scientists at the NIH into permanent positions. Salaries are tied to the General Schedule and capped at the GS15/10 level; salary increases are dependent on time-in-service and promotions and are given in a lock-step fashion. One-time or limited duration recruitment and retention bonus incentives of up to 25% of base pay are available. Use of Title 38 for physicians involved in direct patient care or of Title 42 allows for salary flexibility.
