VUMC Faculty Position in HIV and Aging Research

The Divisions of Infectious Diseases (ID) and Geriatrics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) have an immediate opening for a physician-scientist (i.e. M.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) to join our faculty as a member of our growing HIV and Aging Research Program.

Successful candidates will join a thriving and highly collaborative research and clinical community. Our ID Division is home to the Tennessee Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), a four-way partnership between Vanderbilt, Meharry Medical College, Tennessee Department of Health, and Nashville CARES, and with an NIH funded research base of >$20 million. Substantial HIV-related programs led by ID Division faculty members include the Caribbean, Central and South America network for HIV epidemiology (CCASAnet), the Southeast AIDS Education and Training Center (AETC), a President's Emergency Program for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) program in Mozambique, a site for the CFAR Network of Integrated Clinical Systems (CNICS), clinical research sites for both HVTN and ACTG (including leadership of the ACTG’s Human Genomics Core), and the Regional Prospective Observational Research in Tuberculosis (RePORT)-Brazil. Broadly, our research in HIV and Aging aims to improve the health status and quality of life of adults aging with HIV through domestic and international epidemiological, clinical, and translational studies. Our work in HIV and Aging has included investigation into the effects of immune senescence, inflammation, mitochondrial genotype and function, and key coinfections on outcomes such as vaccine response, frailty, neurocognition, metabolic disease, cardiovascular disease, and multimorbidity more generally.

Vanderbilt is home to the Vanderbilt Comprehensive Care Clinic (VCCC), which serves as the HIV treatment center and primary care medical home to almost 4,000 clients living with HIV (~half are over the age of 50). VCCC offers a unique experience to participate in the clinical care of a large cohort of aging clients with HIV and in research utilizing data from this cohort.

Our Geriatrics division is a dynamic clinical and research arena.  The Vanderbilt Center for Quality Aging, part of the Institute of Medicine and Public Health, is focused on the development and evaluation of clinical interventions to improve quality of care and quality of life for older patients across the continuum of care, with current projects focused on improving the quality of care transitions and patient-centered deprescribing interventions to reduce polypharmacy and improve associated health outcomes.  Our affiliated VA Hospital (Tennessee Valley Healthcare System) includes one of 22 VA Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Centers (GRECC) and one of 11 National VA Quality Scholars Fellowship programs. 

Candidates should have a track record of successfully securing funds to support their research.  Salaries and benefits packages are highly competitive.

At Vanderbilt we welcome employees from a wide variety of backgrounds, traditions, and experiences. We witness the vitality and creativity that comes from bringing different perspectives together. We are particularly interested in attracting candidates who are Under-Represented in Medicine (URiM) for these positions and seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. Minoritized persons/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.  Candidates should submit a letter of interest and CV to:
