Full-or part-time faculty position in women’s health
Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) Program.
Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA is the home site for a Harvard-wide training grant initiative called “Hormones and Genes in Women’s Health: From Bench to Bedside.” We are pleased to invite applications for a full-time or part-time faculty position for a MD or PhD/ScD to develop an academic career in women’s health. Specifically, this NIH-sponsored training grant will support scholars involved in investigating the role of hormones and genes in understanding sex differences in vulnerabilities to clinical disorders and those disorders specific to women. Potential Scholars investigating socio-environmental factors modulating the impact of hormones and genes in understanding these sex-specific vulnerabilities will also be considered. Scholars will be sponsored for 2-3 years of mentored research from Harvard faculty in basic, translational, or clinical aspects of women’s health, and will combine, if applicable, clinical work in the Scholar’s specialty. Successful applicants will have prior relevant research training in research methodology, potential to obtain independent research funding and evidence of publication in peer-reviewed journals. Faculty appointments will be at the Instructor or Assistant Professor, commensurate with qualifications. Applications from women and minorities are highly encouraged and desired. Applications are accepted until November 14, 2008. For further information, eligibility criteria, and the application form, visit our web site at www.brighamandwomens.org/ConnorsCenter/Research/BIRCWH/ResearchOpportunities.aspx and/or submit application materials to Dr. Ursula Kaiser, Program Director, at BIRCWH@partners.org.
