The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing (SON), a research-intensive, top-ranked school of nursing, seeks outstanding candidates for a tenured position at the rank of Professor to serve as Associate Dean for Research. Both the SON and the university foster a highly collaborative research environment. The SON has significant dedicated research space including a state-of-the-art Biobehavioral Laboratory. The SON is located within walking distance to the university’s top-ranked schools of medicine, public health, pharmacy, dentistry and social work located within steps of each other and is adjacent to UNC Hospitals. SON faculty lead and collaborate on a diverse portfolio of multidisciplinary studies. The school ranks 12th for NIH funding, with SON faculty receiving over $12 million in external funding in 2021.

We invite candidates with a strong record of externally- funded research as a principal investigator who will provide strategic direction for SON research and mentor faculty on the development of their research programs. An ideal candidate:

(a) will have experiences in leading team efforts toward the development of center grant proposals, and (b) can both harness and focus faculty areas of research in ways that facilitate multiple principal investigator and co-investigator levels of collaboration among faculty in the SON. We are seeking a doctorally-prepared, tenurable individual who demonstrates a commitment to equity and to ensuring a climate that supports inclusion among faculty, staff, and students. Further, we are seeking an individual who acts as a role model and champion for service excellence and continuous improvement, encourages innovation and risk- taking, speaks candidly about negative trends and encourages appropriate action, listens to feedback, and is willing to make timely decisions.

The Associate Dean for Research guides the direction of the school's research programs and advocates for the school and nursing research mission and the development and support needs of faculty. The Associate Dean also provides oversight for the Office of Research Support and Consultation (RSC) and chairs the Research Division, the administrative home for faculty whose primary function is research related. As chair of the Research Division, the Associate Dean oversees faculty recruitment, appointment and promotion, and performance evaluations for research- division faculty, advocates for these faculty as needed in various school forums and holds regular meetings of the Division faculty.

The Associate Dean for Research reports to the Dean. S/he works closely with other Associate and Assistant Deans to facilitate the research endeavors of the school and faculty and to facilitate extramural grant submissions by doctoral and postdoctoral students. The Associate Dean also works closely with and maintains liaison relationships with various University research offices and committees. The Associate Dean for Research supervises the RSC’s faculty statisticians and the Director of the RSC, who supervises the RSC editors, proposal specialists, and budget personnel. The Associate Dean is supported by an RSC Advisory Board and RSC consultants - a group of four to six faculty who receive workload credit to mentor and support their colleagues as they develop proposals for external funding.

The School of Nursing recognizes the importance of an educational and work environment in which all individuals are respected and valued. To that end, we are strongly committed to hiring and retaining a diverse workforce.
