Training and Faculty Opportunities

Training Opportunities

As The Blavatnik Family Women’s Health Research Institute leverages the existing research strengths at Mount Sinai, we will be cultivating promising trainees by:

  • Establishing the Women’s Health Scholars Program and recruiting residents to spend an additional year learning research methodology for a career in women’s health.
  • Strengthening the curriculum on biostatistics, epidemiology, and research methodology in the residency research core program.
  • Utilizing the many training programs available through the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) and the Center for Biostatistics to augment training.
  • Changing the educational profile of Mount Sinai residency and fellowship programs and further attracting the top medical school and residency candidates by building our research capabilities in women's health.

Faculty Opportunities

We will be recruiting a number of faculty members in diverse fields to build The Blavatnik Family Women’s Health Research Institute. We plan to collaborate with other departments and institutes and to recruit faculty from a broad range of disciplines including those with expertise in genetics, immunology, behavioral health, disparities and health equity, novel statistical methods, epidemiology, LGBT health, and mental health. 

Health Services Researcher/Women's Health Researcher

The Blavatnik Family Women’s Health Research Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is seeking a health services or women’s health researcher at the level of Associate Professor or Professor to lead research at the forefront of women’s health across the life course. The Blavatnik Family Women’s Health Research Institute will bring together multiple disciplines to build cutting-edge research programs in health care quality and outcomes research with a focus on women’s health across the life course, including pre-adolescence, reproductive medicine, post-menopause, and geriatric care. The institute aims to build and expand a research portfolio in key areas of women’s health, including: access to quality of care, mental health and depression, disparities and health equity research, social determinants of health, maternal and infant morbidity and mortality, gynecological cancer, quality of life, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, cardiovascular health, LGBTQ health, Global Health, and health policy.

The ideal candidate will be an experienced, federally funded investigator who is a distinguished national and even international leader in health services or women’s health research. Because the Blavatnik Family Women’s Health Research Institute will address a broad range of medical, epidemiological and socioeconomic issues, the candidate’s specific discipline 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.

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. Mount Sinai offers a competitive salary and an excellent benefits package. All interested applicants are invited to send their curriculum vitae and letter of interest to Ms. Ashaki Smith at Ashaki.smith@mssm.edu
