The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Institute for Trauma Recovery (UNCITR) is searching for a PhD-trained researcher interested in developing an NIH-funded research career focused on better understanding and improving the lives of teenage girls and/or adult women experiencing sexual assault. The recruited investigator will have the opportunity to develop studies within the Better Tomorrow Network, the first ever large-scale research network dedicated to understanding and improving outcomes after sexual assault. The UNCITR serves as the Data Coordinating Center for the network. A researcher is sought to develop an NIH career development award and/or R-level funding performing observational and/or interventional studies that improve the recovery outcomes of teenage girls or adult women experiencing sexual assault.
Faculty Responsibilities will be dedicated to developing their research work and grant funding. A portion of time can also be spent in clinical practice if the candidate desires, and joint appointments with other departments (e.g., psychology, psychiatry, school of public health) are also possible.
PhD in a related field (i.e., psychology, social science, public health, etc.).
Applicants must have a demonstrated commitment to improving the lives of trauma survivors, and evidence of outstanding potential for success in becoming a successful NIH-funded researcher (e.g., as demonstrated through educational and training track record, letters of reference, etc.). Applicants must also possess the ability to analyze clinical research data using basic statistical and epidemiologic methods.

The department has a history of funding received from National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, National Institute of Justice, multiple industry sponsors as well as many private foundations and organizations.
The goal of the Institute for Trauma Recovery is to advance understanding of the biological processes mediating recovery after trauma, and to use the latest scientific technology to develop individually tailored interventions that promote rapid recovery and prevent chronic symptom development. We continuously work to create a scientific community where research scientists have the intellectual space to develop and actualize their individual leadership potential within areas of interest, while also enriching the quality of their science by collaborating with a phenomenal team of faculty an...d staff. Our scholarly culture is driven by our devotion to the recovery of individuals experiencing trauma.
