OB/GYN Faculty Positions – Not currently recruiting at this time

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham invites applications for a full-time faculty position for an OB/GYN generalist or sub-specialist who is interested in an academic career. Candidates eligible to apply for a scholar position must

  1. Be a physician holding the MD or DO degree who has completed postgraduate residency training in OB/GYN or at least in final research year of postdoctoral fellowship training in its subspecialties;
  2. Not be a principal investigator on an R01 or R29, on a subproject of a P01 on a program project, P50, P60, or U54 center grant, or on a mentored career development award;
  3. Be a US citizen or noncitizen national, or must have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence and possess a Permanent Resident Card or some other verification of legal admission as a permanent citizen.

Candidates are applying for appointment as a WRHR Scholar funded by the NICHD Physician Scientist Award program (www.nichd.nih.gov/research/supported/pages/wrhr.aspx) to promote the development of OB/GYN physicians as independent investigators. UAB’s WRHR program offers two scholar tracks, entry and advanced. Entry track scholars will be encouraged to spend at least two years completing coursework pursuant to the acquisition of an advanced degree (i.e. MSPH) that will enable the scholar to learn skills that will foster their development as independent investigators. Advanced Scholars may have already completed an MPH or PhD. Scholars will be sponsored for up to five years of mentored research in basic, translational, or clinical aspects of women’s reproductive health, combined with clinical work in the faculty member’s specialty.

The rank and tenure status for these positions is open, depending upon the candidate’s training and experience.
