Overview

IHME has an outstanding opportunity for an Academic Development Specialist to join our team to lead the Institute’s post-doctoral, affiliate, and visitor programs for IHME and the Department of Health Metrics Sciences (HMS). The purpose of this position is to further develop, attract, and maintain a top-tier cohort of postdoctoral scholars, visiting academic staff, and affiliate faculty through facilitating their recruitment, onboarding, and professional development.

The Academic Development Specialist must act with deft diplomacy and exercise strong independent judgment at all times in a fast-paced, competitive work environment which requires creative and sometimes novel solutions to meet its academic development and planning needs, which are often outside of the norm for the University. The individual must be able to interpret multi-layered policies, assess and be able to assign priorities to actions within IHME from a competing array of demands, and manage implementation of needed actions across teams in a relaxed, but commanding, manner. This position is contingent on project funding availability.
