Multiple Faculty Positions

Clinical and Translational Researchers in Cancer, Stroke and Neuropsychiatric Disorders, and Metabolic/Cardiovascular Diseases

The School of Medicine (SOM) at West Virginia University (WVU), in collaboration with the West Virginia Clinical and Translational Science Institute (WVCTSI), invites applications for tenure-track clinical/translational faculty researchers in a number of research areas.

WVU and its WVCTSI partners are recent recipients of a $19.6M NIH-funded Clinical and Translational Research (CTR) award. This funding, plus $33.5M in matching funds, is supporting significant expansion of infrastructure to support C/T research, and recruitment of many clinical and translational researchers in WVU’s School of Medicine. WVU SOM is building on existing research strengths in areas of need in West Virginia and the broader Appalachian region. These include: cancer, stroke and neuropsychiatric disorders, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, and health outcomes and policy research. Successful applicants will be jointly appointed in one of many active and growing SOM clinical departments in the School of Medicine and the newly formed Department of Clinical and Translational Science. Endowed and/or leadership positions are associated with many of these opportunities, including:
