The Duke University School of Nursing (DUSON) is at the forefront of nursing education, research and clinical practice. The university’s collegial and collaborative academic community particularly around scientific inquiry has allowed the school’s research center and programs to thrive locally, nationally and globally and DUSON is now ranked #5 among schools of nursing receiving NIH funding (2021). Our tradition of research excellence is directly linked to continuing the steadfast leadership of the school’s research priorities.

We invite candidates for a full‐time faculty position to serve as DUSON’s next Vice Dean for Research (VDR). DUSON’s VDR is envisioned to be an imaginative and creative individual who excels in a collaborative environment with high expectations and standards. We seek an individual who is an outstanding scientist, educator and leader with the intellectual stature, experience and vision to ensure DUSON’s success in achieving its research mission. Most desirable experiences will include an academic career with a distinguished research record, exemplary communication skills, demonstrated leadership and managerial abilities, outstanding scholarly accomplishments and successful experience facilitating the research and career development of other scientists.  Additional details on the role and responsibilities are available in the VDR job description.

Candidates must be doctorally prepared from a research‐focused doctoral program and eligible for a tenured faculty appointment in the senior ranks at Duke University. The VDR will have an ongoing program of externally funded research in nursing and/or a health‐related field as evidenced by a history of extensive prior external funding and scholarship that has had significant impact on the field. We expect the VDR to possess a strong track record in the development of mentoring programs with demonstrated outcomes, experience developing center grants, a history of progressive leadership responsibility in research administration, and a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. All candidates, nurse and non-nurse, will be considered and are encouraged to apply. 

All regular rank faculty members are expected to have a regular on‐campus presence for activities that may include but are not limited to teaching, research, scholarship, clinical practice, and service.

The Duke Nursing community includes nearly 90 full‐time faculty members, over 120 staff members, and approximately 1,150 students. The School offers four degree programs: ABSN, MSN, DNP, and PhD. Duke University offers an unusually rich, interdisciplinary environment, conducive to teaching, practice, and research across the undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools (Nursing, Medicine, Divinity, Business, Law, Engineering,  Environment and Policy) as well as various sponsored institutes. Duke is rated by its employees as one of the best places to work in the Triangle area and offers a competitive salary and benefits package.

Candidate review is ongoing and applications received by May 31, 2022 will receive priority consideration for a Summer 2022 target hire date. Interested individuals should submit a curriculum vitae and cover letter detailing their experiences that align with the role, specific research focus, areas of scholarship and service.
