The Division is recruiting an early career researcher focused on population health and health equity, racism/discrimination, and/or health services delivery for children with medical and/or social complexity to join the exceptional research team and infrastructure already in place at CCHMC. Opportunities abound to conduct research in pursuit of the goal of making Cincinnati’s kids the healthiest in the nation by leveraging our regional population health initiative. This initiative already includes a range of diverse partnerships and deep community involvement where research is being executed alongside education, advocacy, and clinical care delivery. The hospital’s commitment to health equity is longstanding, most recently supercharged by a new strategic plan, new Michael Fisher Child Health Equity Center, and new value-based pediatric care network.

Faculty must qualify for a position at the rank of Instructor or Assistant Professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. The faculty member would be expected to pursue scholarly work and attain K or R level funding within the first 3 years of appointment if not already externally funded.
