Job Description


Located in Winston-Salem, the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (WFBMC) is a nationally recognized academic medical center with an integrated enterprise including educational and research facilities, hospitals, clinics, diagnostic centers, and other primary and specialty care facilities serving 20 counties in northwest North Carolina and southwest Virginia. The academic flagship of WFBMC is Wake Forest School of Medicine and among its most highly regarded units is the Division of Public Health Sciences, which includes 63 faculty and 176 staff in four vibrant academic departments: Biostatistical Sciences, Epidemiology & Prevention, Implementation Science, and Social Sciences & Health Policy. In FY2017, $43M in extramural funding was awarded to the PHS. Consistently for the last decade, the Wake Forest PHS has ranked in the top 10 for organizations of this type.

After 27 exceptionally successful years as Director of the PHS Division, Dr. Greg Burke has assumed the role of Senior Associate Dean of Research and the recently appointed CEO of the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and Dean of Wake Forest School of Medicine, Dr. Julie Freischlag, now seeks a nationally recognized, world-class scientist and seasoned leader to serve as the next Director of Public Health Sciences (PHS).

Functioning as a 'school within a school', the PHS brings a unique, interdisciplinary approach to population health and clinical research and to the generation, management and interpretation of basic science, clinical and health-related information. Its multidisciplinary public health scientists have international and national renown in cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, substance abuse, cancer control, community-based participatory research, health-related quality of life, women's health, population genetics, statistical methods, study coordination, bioinformatics, and neuroepidemiology. The new Director will be expected to enhance and deepen collaborations with the Wake Forest School of Medicine, health system, and cross-university research initiatives and serve as a bridge to the community at large. PHS has a unique opportunity to directly impact and transform medical care delivery to patients in the surrounding areas (and beyond) by directly implementing the results of investigations of its faculty and measuring results. It is actively evolving into a learning healthcare model. The synergy between the newly created Center for Healthcare Innovation and PHS's Department of Implementation Science figure prominently in this evolution in cutting-edge clinical research in an ever-changing healthcare environment.

The successful candidate will demonstrate passion for the research and educational missions of PHS and will have the business acumen and cultural sensitivity to manage a well-honed, complex and diverse organization. The new Director will demonstrate the interpersonal skills that will assure successful relationship building with leadership, as well as the faculty and staff of the Division of Public Health Sciences. Engagement with a variety of stakeholders including affiliated community organizations and government figures will also figure prominently. The successful candidate will share his/her energizing vision in mapping the PHS roadmap to the future, coupled with an ability to communicate in a fashion that inspires others to follow in uncertain times. Familiarity with the latest challenges presented to its researchers, including the keen competition for funding is essential. The new Director must be a consensus builder, respectful of the institution's history and accomplishments, and also effective in leading through change.

ESSENTIAL QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE

Responsibilities:

  • Provide strategic leadership for the institution with the ongoing efforts to grow and collaborate with colleagues across the entire health system.

  • Minimum of ten (10) years of experience in an academic environment, including five (5) of progressive leadership/administrative experience.
  • Experience in leading and conducting team-oriented research, developing early-career scientists, and financial management.
