Description
Co-Director, Center for Global Health and Diseases

The Center for Global Health and Diseases (CGHD) and the Department of Pathology at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) are seeking to recruit a prominent investigator in global health research to build upon and strengthen a rigorous research program in the areas of immunity and pathogenesis of infections of significance to global health. Resources will be provided for recruitment of additional faculty positions.

Current strengths of the CGHD include externally funded basic and translational research programs at CWRU and abroad focused on malaria, neglected tropical diseases such as schistosomiais, filariasis and onchocerciasis, and mosquito-borne viral diseases. Related research programs in Pathology and other departments involve tuberculosis and HIV. The CGHD and Pathology together support a broad scope from basic immunology to international clinical trials, an Immunology Training Program, and training grants in both immunology and global health/infectious diseases. Other institutional strengths include the CWRU Center for AIDS Research, the Tuberculosis Research Unit, and strong research programs in the Division of Infectious Diseases and HIV Medicine and the Department of Molecular Biology and Microbiology. The Pathology Department is ranked in the top 10 for NIH funding. Annual research funding in immunology and infectious diseases exceeds $100M across CWRU and affiliates. CWRU is located in Cleveland Ohio, a central Midwestern hub for art, culture, and sports that boasts a low cost of living and outstanding schools.

Skills
Candidates at the Associate or Full Professor levels should have demonstrable national or international reputations, respectively, and robust and active research programs. Candidates should also have a history of mentorship and leadership to enable their success in building international research teams, educational programs and other aspects of leadership for the CGHD.

Notes
Interested candidates should forward a CV, a cover letter describing their research interests and leadership accomplishments, and names of 3 referees in a single pdf file to denise.davis@case.edu.
