The University of Arkansas for Medical Medical (UAMS) Division of Health Services Research, in conjunction with the UAMS Center for Implementation Research, seeks an implementation scientist for a faculty position. The position will be commensurate with background and experience falling anywhere between the Assistant to Full Professor range. A tenure track appointment is available for qualified candidates. The successful applicant will work with a multi-disciplinary team of scientists across a wide range of implementation research activities within mental health contexts– e.g., developing and testing implementation strategies, observational studies of real-world implementation, hybrid clinical effectiveness-implementation trials, and preliminary research on barriers/facilitators to implementation.

This will be a full-time faculty position within the UAMS Department of Psychiatry. A joint position with the VA is also possible. Early-career applicants will be evaluated on academic background, level of productivity within the field of implementation science, and evidence of strong collaboration. Mid-career or senior-level applicants should have a successful history of NIH, PCORI, VA and/or DoD funding with strong academic credentials and the motivation to not only compete for federal funding but to mentor junior faculty in the process. All applicants should have excellent planning, communication and leadership skills.
