Job opening

Faculty Position, Reproductive Health

Staff category: 

  • Faculty and investigators

Inquiries: Department staff contact for application questions is Carmen Nakapaahu-Guerrero, email Carmen.N-Guerrero@ucsf.edu.

ANSIRH is seeking a faculty member to join our team and pursue a program of research of their own design within our program, in line with our mission and vision. We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in research and medicine to apply. We seek social scientists or clinical researchers (e.g., PhD, DrPH, or clinical degree with research experience) with expertise in quantitative or qualitative social science research, including in health behavior, demography, epidemiology, sociology, psychology, anthropology, health economics, health services research, program evaluation, medicine, nursing, and/or related disciplines. The faculty member must demonstrate an established focus on sexual and reproductive health in their work or a commitment to expanding their research into investigating sexual and reproductive health or issues affecting people’s sexual and reproductive lives. We are particularly interested in researchers who focus on racial equity or justice in their work, or involve communities of color directly in their research (e.g., via community-based participatory research), though these are not requirements. Our hope is to hire a faculty member who will bring their unique perspectives and research questions to drive ANSIRH’s research in important new directions, while also contributing a synergy with ANSIRH faculty to strengthen our program’s production of scientific knowledge related to people’s sexual and reproductive lives.

Funding

This is a soft money appointment (i.e. funded through grants) at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank; academic rank and track will be determined based on qualifications and experience. The faculty member will receive initial salary coverage of up to 50-100% full-time effort for 1 to 3 years, with the amount of support based upon the successful candidate’s existing grant funding and rank. The faculty member will be expected to obtain research grant funding to sustain their ongoing salary support and program of research.

ABOUT ANSIRH

Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) is a collaborative research group at UCSF and a program of the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, a multi-disciplinary academic center focused on the most pressing need for adolescent sexual health, family planning, abortion policy, maternal health and sexually transmitted infections. The Bixby Center is a key research entity of the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG) Division of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences (Ob/Gyn & RS) at UCSF.

At ANSIRH, we conduct innovative, rigorous, multidisciplinary research on complex issues related to people’s sexual and reproductive lives. Our work is informed by understanding of the role that structural inequities play in shaping health. We believe in the importance of research in advancing evidence-based policy, practice, and public discourse to improve reproductive wellbeing. We envision a world in which all people have the resources, support, and freedom to achieve reproductive wellbeing. We value integrity, collaboration, innovation, cultivation, and justice.
