The Division of Infectious Diseases (ID) at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) seeks an outstanding physician investigator to join our team. The division is keenly interested in diversifying its faculty and is committed to building a culturally diverse and inclusive intellectual community. We strongly encourage applications from women, sexual and gender minority people, and people underrepresented in Medicine (UIM).
More specifically, we wish to attract those devoted to improving health equity in the community and/or globally through the application of rigorous scientific approaches to understanding and addressing infectious diseases, their determinants, and their impact on vulnerable populations. Research expertise in any of the following domains is highly desirable: epidemiology, implementation science, social and behavioral science, community-based participatory research, patient-oriented research, and/or mixed methods research.
Successful applicants will be expected to maintain an extramurally funded research program, lead independent research, collaborate with members of the division and the broader Mass General Brigham community, and spearhead educational efforts including mentored investigation. They will also participate in the clinical activities of the division which is a vibrant community of over 60 ID faculty engaged in inpatient and ambulatory care and research across several domains including HIV/AIDS, Covid-19, viral hepatitis, transplant and immunocompromised ID, mycobacterial diseases, tropical and geographic medicine, musculoskeletal ID, perinatal infections, and several other multidisciplinary programs which draw from the expertise across the MGH and the larger community.
Appointments will be within the Division of Infectious Diseases and Harvard Medical School as an Instructor, Assistant Professor, or Associate Professor commensurate with experience, training, and achievements in addition to teaching activities. Suitable candidates will have an MD, MD-PhD, or equivalent, and will be Board Certified in ID. MGH Center affiliations will be aligned with candidate interests and may include The Mongan Institute or The Center for Global Health.
