    Position Description

    The Department of Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is recruiting a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor who will be appointed to the Leon S. Robertson Faculty Development Chair in Injury Prevention. The person who will serve in this Chair is selected on the basis of his or her outstanding contribution to the field of injury prevention, and promise as a leader who can make substantial contributions in teaching, scholarship, policy, and practice in injury prevention.


    This position will be in the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy, one of ten CDC-funded “centers for excellence” in injury research in the United States. The theme of the Center is “Closing the Gap between Research and Practice to Reduce the Burden of Injury”.

    The focus of the candidate’s work may include unintentional and/or intentional injury and may emphasize primary, secondary, and/or tertiary prevention of high priority injury problems. Training and experience in a core discipline of injury control is essential (e.g., epidemiology, law, criminology, economics, health outcomes research, social and behavioral sciences, psychology, medicine, nursing, biomechanics). Of particular interest is work focused on the needs of vulnerable populations in the United States, translational research, and practice partnerships with injury prevention professionals working in the public and private sectors.

    Candidates should have an advanced degree (e.g., PhD, MD, DrPH), and either have a strong track record of publishing in high-impact journals and obtaining funding for their research, or have demonstrated the potential to do so. Candidates should also show a strong commitment to teaching and advising doctoral and masters students in the School.

Johns Hopkins University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer committed to recruiting, supporting, and fostering a diverse community of outstanding faculty, staff, and students.

    West Virginia University (WVU) seeks a proven and dynamic leader who is an accomplished researcher in the fields of injury and/or violence control and prevention, to serve as the next Director of the WVU Injury Control Research Center (ICRC) – one of ten CDC-funded injury centers nationwide.  This recruitment is intended to facilitate a smooth transition in leadership, as the current Director will remain on the WVU faculty and will work closely with the new Director following selection of the successful applicant.  


    The ICRC is located within the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center (HSC), in Morgantown, West Virginia http://home.hsc.wvu.edu/. Within the HSC, the ICRC is co-sponsored by the Schools of Medicine and Public Health.  The ICRC maintains a specific focus on serving the populations of West Virginia and the surrounding Appalachian region, and the associated injury priorities of drug overdoses and poisonings, motor-vehicle-related injuries, and falls among the elderly. Applicants with experience with these priority populations and expertise in these focus areas are highly desired and strongly encouraged to apply. However, applications from those with expertise in any of the seven focus areas of the ICRC will also be accepted.  Additional information on the research, education and outreach activities and priorities of the ICRC, and our affiliated faculty members can be found at: http://publichealth.hsc.wvu.edu/icrc/home/


    WVU is a comprehensive, land-grant institution with approximately 22,500 undergraduates plus 6,600 graduate and professional students. The HSC includes the Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Nursing, and Public Health.  Patient care facilities include a 460-bed teaching hospital, a Level I trauma center, and a 70-bed psychiatric hospital.  Morgantown is within easy traveling distance of Washington, D.C., to the east, Pittsburgh, Pa., to the north, and Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, to the northwest. 


    As Director of the ICRC, the selected applicant will assume the role of principal investigator on our existing CDC-supported center grant (pending approval from CDC).  The Director has specific authority to carry out all requirements of the center grant and primary oversight for all aspects of the Center’s operation including its research agenda, training and education program, and community outreach activities. The Director is expected to lead a program that successfully integrates research, intervention development, evaluation and translation efforts in a holistic approach to fatal and nonfatal injury prevention.  The Director is also expected to maintain his/her own active research portfolio and guide the further development and expansion of the Center.  Candidates should have a record of excellence in research and teaching in relevant areas, as well as a track record of leadership within an academic setting.  The position comes with a competitive salary and start-up package.  A faculty appointment in an appropriate school and department within the WVU HSC will be provided, commensurate with the individual’s background and experience.


    The Director position will remain open until filled.  Applications should be submitted as soon as possible, electronically to Carol Smith, Executive Recruiter, at cbsmith@hsc.wvu.edu with a cover letter of interest, current CV, and contact information (including e-mail addresses) for three professional references.
