Job Summary:

The Collaborative Center for Health Equity is part of the UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR, ) within the School of Medicine and Public Health. We support junior and senior researchers with tools, resources, and guidance to help them move their research findings from experimental settings into clinical and community practice (translating research into practice). This includes a commitment and focus on inclusive science, supporting researchers who have been historically underrepresented in the scientific workforce, promoting the success of health equity researchers, and helping investigators build collaborative research partnerships with communities.

The CCHE Administrative Manager will be a vital part of this coordinated effort to promote health equity and inclusive science. Specifically, the manager will provide organizational, logistical, evaluation and student support for a range of CCHE programs that are designed for historically underrepresented pre-doctoral trainees, post-doctoral scholars and fellows, and early-stage faculty. These include Advocating for Diversity and Equity in Pre-doctoral Trainees (ADEPT), Advancing Health Equity and Diversity (AHEAD), Success Together Reaching Independence, Diversity, and Empowerment (STRIDE), and the Health Equity Leadership Institute (HELI). In addition, the Administrative Manager will be the principal point of contact for researchers, teams and community members interested in CCHE services. They will, for example, organize responses to consultation requests (with other CCHE members), schedule staff/faculty meetings, and provide general support for CCHE activities (ex: SMPH New Faculty Orientation).

SMPH is committed to being a diverse, equitable, inclusive and anti-racist workplace and is an Equal Employment Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer. Applications from Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) individuals, LGBTQ+ and non-binary identities, women, persons with disabilities, military service members and veterans are strongly encouraged.
