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.
