Associate Professor Obstetrician Gynecologist Clinician Scientist

Job Description

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is seeking a Ob/Gyn Clinician Scientist for the Women’s Health Research Institute.  The Women’s Health Research Institute combines The Center for Early Translational Research in Women’s Health and The Center for Outcomes and Quality Research in Women’s Health (initially led by the Institute director, Elizabeth Howell, MD, MPP). Together, these two centers of excellence will provide leadership support, focus, and training for the Women’s Health Research Institute.  The Women’s Health Research Institute will bring together many disciplines to build cutting-edge translational research programs that will make Mount Sinai a national thought leader in women’s health across the life course, including pre-adolescence, reproductive medicine, post-menopause, and geriatric care.  
 
Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is the academic arm of the Mount Sinai Health System, which also includes seven superb member hospitals:, The Mount Sinai Hospital, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, , Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, Mount Sinai West, New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, Mount Sinai Queens and Mount Sinai Brooklyn.  Within the School, 33 academic departments collaborate closely with a similar number of multidisciplinary institutes to conduct cutting-edge basic, translational and clinical research, and provide unparalleled clinical and training experiences.  The School currently ranks #13 nationwide in NIH funding, and leads the nation in NIH dollars per investigator.
 
The ideal candidate for this position will be an experienced, federally funded investigator who is a distinguished national and even international leader in his or her field of expertise.  Because the Women’s Health Research Institute will address a broad range of ob/gyn, epidemiological and socioeconomic issues, the candidate’s specific subspecialty is less important than his or her track record of success, with the ability to build a research infrastructure and assemble and mentor an interdisciplinary scientific team that will attract extramural funding and conduct break-through science.  Experience working with women, and sensitivity in bringing research to the clinical arena, are essential.   A creative, forward-thinking mindset and collaborative nature are crucial.
 
Applicants must hold an MD and/or PhD or equivalent.  Clinicians who intend to practice must be board-certified in their specialty, and must hold or be eligible for a New York State medical license.
 
Mount Sinai offers a competitive salary and an excellent benefits package.
