    The Department of Pediatrics Division of Community Health and Research (CHR) at Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) is seeking a full-time, 12 month faculty member at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, depending on qualifications, with a community health perspective and applied expertise in prevention science or health behavior research. This candidate will join a team of researchers focused on community health addressing a broad range of issues impacting children’s health and safety. For 20 years the CHR has created and sustained partnerships at the local, regional, and national levels to conduct applied and participatory research addressing health inequities and to advance the prevention and treatment of disability and disease. 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 behavior-based applied research to develop, implement, and evaluate safety and health promotion programs.


    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.


    An earned doctorate in psychology, social or behavioral science, public health, or closely related field, strong methodological skills relevant to prevention science research, an active research program, and demonstrated record of excellence in research and scholarship are required. Research interests should complement and expand existing expertise in CHR, which includes injury prevention; behavior change; obesity; respiratory health; CBPR; substance use; risk communication; health education; policy and systems change; and rural health. The selected candidate must possess strong skills in theory, research design, and statistics. Applicants with demonstrated capacity to build productive interdisciplinary research teams, mentor junior faculty, and earn external funding are particularly competitive. Applications will be reviewed beginning December 1, 2014 and continue until the position is filled.

    To apply, send a curriculum vita, three letters of reference, and a letter of application highlighting your program of research to: Dr. Kaethe Ferguson, Associate Professor and Division Director,
