The Center for Global Health and Diseases (CGHD) and Department of Pathology at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) are seeking a prominent investigator in global health research to be the future Director of the CGHD. The new Director will further develop the rigorous CGHD research program in immunity and pathogenesis of infections of significance to global health. Resources will be provided for recruitment of additional faculty positions. Candidates should have sustained scientific productivity and external funding for research on infectious diseases of importance to global health  (e.g. malaria, tuberculosis, neglected tropical diseases, viral and bacterial infections underlying diarrheal and lower respiratory tract diseases).

CGHD research programs at CWRU and abroad are focused on malaria, schistosomiaisschistosomiasis, filariasis and onchocerciasis, and mosquito-borne viral diseases.  Related research programs at CWRU involve tuberculosis and HIV. The CGHD and Pathology together support research from basic immunology to international clinical trials, an Immunology Training Program, and NIH training grants in both immunology and global health/infectious diseases.  Other institutional strengths include the CWRU Center for AIDS Research, the Tuberculosis Research Unit, the Division of Infectious Diseases and HIV Medicine and the Department of Molecular Biology and Microbiology. The Pathology Department is ranked in the top 10 for NIH funding.  Annual research funding in immunology and infectious diseases exceeds $100M across CWRU and affiliates. CWRU is located in Cleveland Ohio, a central Midwestern hub for art, culture, and sports that boasts a low cost of living and outstanding schools. 

Candidates at the Associate or Full Professor levels should have national or international reputations, respectively, robust and active research programs, and a history of mentorship and leadership to enable their success in building international research teams, educational programs and other aspects of leadership for the CGHD.  Interested candidates should forward a CV, a cover letter describing their research interests and leadership accomplishments, and names of 3 referees in a single pdf file to denise.davis@case.edu.
