Applying for this job ?  Please tell them you found it on !

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is seeking an inaugural Director of the Institute for the Study of Adolescence and Young Adulthood.  This Institute will be a close partner with Mount Sinaiís Adolescent Health Center, a nationally and internationally renowned provider of outstanding and innovative clinical care, serving over 10,000 vulnerable youths annually.   The new Institute is uniquely positioned to build on this extraordinary foundation by integrating a first-class research program into the existing clinical platform in order to transform the field of adolescent health care.

Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is the academic arm of the Mount Sinai Health System, which also includes seven superb member hospitals:, The Mount Sinai Hospital, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, , Mount Sinai St. Lukeís, Mount Sinai West, New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, Mount Sinai Queens and Mount Sinai Brooklyn.   Within the School, 33 academic departments collaborate closely with a similar number of multidisciplinary institutes to conduct cutting-edge basic, translational and clinical research, and provide unparalleled clinical and training experiences.   The School currently ranks #13 nationwide in NIH funding, and leads the nation in NIH dollars per investigator.

The ideal candidate for Director of the Institute for the Study of Adolescence and Young Adulthood will be an experienced, federally funded investigator who is a distinguished national and even international leader in his or her field of expertise.  Because the Institute will address a broad range of medical, epidemiological and socioeconomic issues, the candidateís specific discipline is less important than his or her track record of success, with the ability to build a research infrastructure and assemble and mentor an interdisciplinary scientific team that will attract extramural funding and conduct break-through science.  Experience working with adolescents, and sensitivity in bringing research to the clinical arena, are essential.   A creative, forward-thinking mindset and collaborative nature are crucial.

Applicants must hold an MD and/or PhD or equivalent.  Clinicians who intend to practice must be board-certified in their specialty, and must hold or be eligible for a New York State medical license.

Mount Sinai offers a competitive salary and an excellent benefits package. All interested applicants are invited to send their curriculum vitae and letter of interest to Annetine Gelijns, PhD, Search Committee Chair at

Mount Sinai Health System is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. We recognize the power and importance of a diverse employee population and strongly encourage applicants with various experiences and backgrounds.
