The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics of the GW Milken Institute School of Public Health (GWSPH) is recruiting for a dynamic, full-time faculty member at the rank of Assistant or Associate Research Professor to serve as the Project Director for a large NIH-funded HIV/AIDS study, the DC Cohort, at 80% effort. The remaining 20% effort will be dedicated to clinical (in-patient or outpatient), educational and/or administrative responsibilities, to be determined based on the training and interests of the successful applicant.

The DC Cohort is one of the largest urban HIV cohort studies in the US and is NIH-funded as a longitudinal observational study of HIV-infected persons receiving care at 15 clinical sites in Washington, DC. The study captures clinical information on HIV-infected persons in care and has been enrolling since 2011 in partnership with numerous clinical providers in Washington, DC, the Cerner Corporation, the DC Department of Health (DC DOH), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The responsibilities of the DC Cohort Project Director will include overseeing study staff, working with the study Principal Investigator and data management partners at Cerner Corporation to direct and manage the day-to-day study operations, assisting and leading design and analysis of manuscripts for the peer-reviewed literature using the DC Cohort database, and collaborating with partners at the NIH and DC DOH, Cerner, the 15 site clinical investigators and other stakeholders to improve patient care and ensure the continued success and growth of this study.

Basic Qualifications

The applicant must have a medical degree (MD), HIV clinical experience and a Masters in Public Health or equivalent; or a PhD or equivalent in Epidemiology and/or Public Health with extensive knowledge of HIV. The applicant must have at least 3-5 years of study coordination experience in HIV/AIDS epidemiology and/or other large cohort studies in the field or in a related area, a track record of peer-reviewed publications, knowledge of HIV-related clinical issues and related outcomes, and strong written and oral communication skills.

Academic rank, salary and employment position are competitive and will be commensurate with experience. GW has a strong commitment to achieving diversity among faculty and staff, and accordingly we encourage applications from members of underrepresented populations.

Application Procedure

Applicants should complete the online faculty application at and submit the following documents: 1) a curriculum vitae; 2) a statement of research interests and accomplishments; and 3) a statement of clinical, teaching and/or mentoring interest. Review of applications will begin on 3/1/2017 and will continue until the position is filled. Only complete applications will be considered.
