Clinical Research Faculty Position
Advanced Depression Treatment Center
Department of Psychiatry
University of Maryland School of Medicine
The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) at the University of Maryland Baltimore (UMB) is recruiting a tenure-track/tenured clinical research scientist focused on depression to integrate with our Advanced Depression Treatment (ADepT) Center. ADepT is a new initiative focused on the treatment of refractory depression including clinical, research, and education missions. This is a unique opportunity to relocate or develop an innovative and interdisciplinary translational research program on mood disorders within a clinical department while participating in the larger UMB research consortia and training programs. Potential candidates should complement established research programs and be able to collaborate with clinical treatment and basic/translational research programs within the Department and broader university. In addition to working within a highly collaborative research environment, the successful applicant also will be expected to participate in the educational and service missions of the department, UMSOM, and UMB. Competitive candidates will have an established research record related to depression and its comorbidities, reflected by a strong publication profile and existing extramural funding. Applicants must have a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD. Clinician scientists, and candidates from underrepresented groups and diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Academic rank, tenure status, start-up package, and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Expected rank is Assistant Professor or higher; however, rank and tenure status is dependent on candidate’s qualifications. Questions may be directed to the Search Committee Chair, Dr. Todd Gould, MD, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applicants should submit an application, statement of research interests and program vision, curriculum vitae, and the names of three references through the UMB Taleo website.
