Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is currently seeking a physician-investigator faculty member at the level of Instructor or Assistant Professor for the Division of Hospital Medicine.
We seek a motivated physician-investigator interested in a career in pediatric hospital medicine research in an academic setting. As a team, we strive to recruit, support, and grow talented people from diverse backgrounds with the aim to create a work environment that embraces diversity, fosters inclusiveness, and treats everyone with respect. We have identified needs in hospital-based research programs in translational, clinical, health services, and implementation science research. This could include hospital-based researchers with expertise in qualitative or quantitative methods.
The Division of Hospital Medicine includes one of the largest groups of pediatric hospital medicine researchers in the country with primary research faculty members partnering with clinical faculty to publish ~100 peer-reviewed manuscripts and receive >$500,000 in grant funding in the most recent fiscal year. The Division has a proven track record of K-award or equivalent career-development funding. Individualized career development is provided through mentoring within the Division of Hospital Medicine and across the institution. Opportunities for collaboration are fostered through weekly divisional research meetings as well as other collaborative research groups throughout the Department of Pediatrics and with the neighboring University of Cincinnati. The candidate would spend the majority of her/his time in research with the expectation of independent funding within 2-3 years of hire (e.g. career development award).

Candidates should have a strong track record of scholarly productivity.
