The Division of General and Community Pediatrics, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital
Medical Center (CCHMC), is seeking a mid-career to senior pediatric researcher to join a
diverse, talented, multidisciplinary team of individuals. We share a passion and
commitment to transform care delivery and foster the innovation needed to improve
population health. We aim to accomplish this through exceptional clinical programs,
high-impact clinical, translational, and educational research, innovative educational
programs, and effective academic and community partnerships.
Cincinnati is one of America’s most vibrant and beautiful river cities. It has all the
amenities of a big city – including outstanding cultural offerings and exceptional schools -with the warmth of a small town and an extraordinary quality of life. Cincinnati has had tremendous growth over the last ten years and is increasingly recognized as a great place to live and visit.
The Division is recruiting a mid- to senior-level researcher focused on population health and health equity, health services delivery, and/or digital health interventions 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.
The ideal candidates would hold an MD, DO, PhD, ScD, or DrPH degree. If an MD or
DO, candidates should be Board Certified in General Pediatrics. Faculty must qualify for a position at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. The faculty member would be expected to pursue scholarly work and attain R level funding within the first 3 years of appointment if not already externally funded. The faculty member would also be expected to mentor trainees and junior faculty. We are seeking individuals who are highly professional, motivated, collaborative, and who foster a culture of inclusion.
