The School of Nursing at the University of Virginia seeks an established scientist with expertise in symptom science to advance research that promotes the health of diverse populations as the Thomas A. Saunders III Family Professor in Nursing. Established in 2000, the Thomas A. Saunders III Family Professorship in Nursing supports an eminent scholar whose pursuits advance the field of nursing science.

Cross cutting approaches and current areas of strength within symptom science, one of our recently developed areas of research excellence, include cancer pain management, cardiovascular disease, dementia and neurodegenerative diseases and mental health, all with a purposeful focus on marginalized communities and community engagement.

This is an opportunity to make significant contributions to symptom science research through interdisciplinary collaboration, advancing one’s program of research, and mentoring early career scientists. Our faculty is committed to the development of nurses who deliver compassionate, safe, high-quality healthcare and are addressing health inequities. We believe research is a cornerstone of advancing the education of our students.

Candidates for this full time 12-month position must hold a PhD in Nursing or equivalent research doctorate in a health-related field. Post-doctoral experience preferred. Appointments may be made at the rank of an Associate Professor or Professor of Nursing, tenure track/tenured, commensurate with experience.

As an eminent scholar, the Saunders Professor will have strong academic credentials and a demonstrated record of externally funded research, as well as a research portfolio that demonstrates national leadership in their field. The candidate shall have a record of commitment to excellence in teaching and successful mentoring relationships with faculty and students, as well as a history of service within nursing and multidisciplinary organizations.

The UVA School of Nursing actively supports diversity, equity, and inclusion in all its activities. We are deeply committed to developing a community that is inclusive, respectful, and considers diversity to be key to excellence. We seek applicants whose experience, teaching, research and/or community service has prepared them to substantially contribute to this mission. We welcome, in particular, applicants from groups who have been historically underrepresented in nursing, including racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+, veterans, people with disabilities, and men.

Position will remain open until filled. Preferred starting date is fall semester, 2022.
