Job Description
Assistant or Associate Professor, Pediatric Public Health Research
The Pediatrics’ Division of Community Health and Research (CHR) at Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) seeks a full-time, 12 month faculty member at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, with expertise in behavioral or public health research, and a focus on conducting applied, participatory, and/or policy research addressing pediatric health inequities and advancing the prevention and treatment of disability and disease in the community.

This candidate will join a group of interdisciplinary researchers dedicated to addressing many of today’s most intractable pediatric public health issues that are rooted in human behavior and social conditions – from smoking and substance use to injury and infectious and chronic disease. For over 25 years the division has used community-engaged research to inform the development of initiatives to promote community health and influence positive change. The successful candidate is expected to lead a thematic program of independent research that is competitive for extramural funding. We are particularly interested in those engaged in research focused on addressing inequities and disparities affecting the health of children, teens, and their families.

EVMS is a dynamic medical school centrally located on the East Coast and serving the southeastern coastal region of Virginia known as Hampton Roads. The diverse 7-city region of 1.7 million stretches from rural outskirts to suburban and urban centers. It offers an affordable cost of living in rural, urban, and suburban communities and abounds in cultural, educational, and economic opportunities. EVMS and the CHR division have established relationships and offer collaborative opportunities with nearby institutions and organizations, including health and social service agencies, the largest military base in the world, and 9 other colleges and universities in the region. Learn more about the Hampton Roads region at https://www.evms.edu/community/living_in_hampton_roads/.

In addition to the continued growth of his/her own program of research and scholarship, the successful candidate will collaborate with other faculty in the department and across the medical school, and contribute to the EVMS presence in the Hampton Roads region. Primary responsibilities will be research-focused, with an emphasis on scholarship published in peer-reviewed journals, securing extramural grant funding, and contributing to the research profile of EVMS.
Qualifications & Requirements
An earned doctorate in psychology, social or behavioral science, public health, or closely related field, strong methodological skills, and a demonstrated record of research and scholarship are required. Research interests should complement and expand existing expertise in CHR, which includes substance use; injury prevention; behavior change; maternal/child heath; obesity; respiratory health; CBPR; risk communication; health education; policy and systems change; and rural health. Learn more about the division at https://www.evms.edu/communityhealth. Applicants with promising or demonstrated capacity to build productive interdisciplinary research teams, mentor trainees, and earn external funding are particularly competitive. Applications will be reviewed beginning November 1, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.

To apply, go to http://www.evms.edu/careers, and select faculty position number 1161001. Attach your curriculum vitae, three letters of reference, and a cover letter of application highlighting your program of research. EVMS is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer of Minorities, Females, Individuals with Disabilities, Protected Veterans, and Drug and Tobacco Free workplace.
