The UNC School of Medicine has a rich tradition of excellence and care. Our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of North Carolinians, and others whom we serve. We accomplish this by providing leadership and excellence in the interrelated areas of patient care, education, and research. We strive to promote faculty, staff, and learner development in a diverse, respectful environment where our colleagues demonstrate professionalism, enhance learning, and create personal and professional sustainability. We optimize our partnership with the UNC Health System through close collaboration and commitment to service.
Our vision is to be the nation’s leading public school of medicine. We are ranked 2nd in primary care education among all US schools of medicine and 5th among public peers in NIH research funding. Our Allied Health Department is home to five top-ranked divisions, and we are home to 18 top-ranked clinical and basic science departments in NIH research funding.
Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of North Carolinians and others whom we serve. We accomplish this by providing leadership and excellence in the interrelated areas of patient care, education, and research.
Patient Care: We will promote health and provide superb clinical care while maintaining our strong tradition of reaching underserved populations and reducing health disparities across North Carolina and beyond.
Education: We will prepare tomorrow’s health care professionals and biomedical researchers by facilitating learning within innovative curricula and team-oriented interprofessional education. We will cultivate outstanding teaching and research faculty, and we will recruit outstanding students and trainees from highly diverse backgrounds to create a socially responsible, highly skilled workforce.
Research: We will develop and support a rich array of outstanding health sciences research programs, centers, and resources. We will provide infrastructure and opportunities for collaboration among disciplines throughout and beyond our University to support outstanding research. We will foster programs in the areas of basic, translational, mechanistic, and population research.
The Office of Training and Fellowships is the central hub for research training activities at UNC’s Institute of Global Health and Infectious Diseases (IGHID). The office coordinates 11 ongoing programs that have collectively trained hundreds of US and international students, fellows, and scholars. This includes intensive training in translational, clinical, and implementation across a range of topics with a vision of a truly global workforce strengthened by the bi-directional contributions of US and international scientists. The institute’s training footprint is anchored by decades-long programs in infectious diseases. In recent years, our programs have expanded across a range of topics including cancers, mental health, surgery, and women’s health. As scientific priorities continue to evolve globally, we seek new opportunities to widen the impact of our program and activities in new and innovative ways.
We are currently recruiting a Program Manager to lead this important office within the institute. We are seeking dynamic thinkers with experience coordinating large and complex programs. The individual hired in this position will be expected to maintain our foundational programs. At the same time, there will also be opportunities for innovation and creative thinking to address gaps in training activities and in our current portfolio. The successful applicant will lead a small team of coordinators and managers, providing administrative back-stopping of day-to-day operations. They will work hand-in-hand with other units within the institute, including for pre- and post-award management. Candidates should have worked with domestic and/or international research training programs in the past, including grants management, finance, and proposal development. We see this as a position for professional growth and welcome applications from early- and mid-career managers seeking the next step in their careers.
