The ACTRI (https://medschool.ucsd.edu/research/actri/about/Pages/default.aspx) at UC San Diego, in collaboration with the department of Psychiatry in the School of Medicine, seeks candidates for a tenured faculty position at the Professor rank. The ACTRI was established in 2010 to provide infrastructure and support for basic, translational, and clinical research throughout UC San Diego and the San Diego region; expedite the translation of discoveries into therapies; and facilitate the training and education of the next generation of researchers.
The ACTRI is recruiting a senior faculty member to direct its Education, Training and Career Development (ETCD) Program. ETCD oversees multiple clinical research education programs:

- Clinical Research Enhancement and Supplemental Training (CREST), a modular curriculum for a broad range of learners seeking instruction on clinical and translational research.
The program also manages seminars and other educational programs to enhance diversity of trainees, and the CTRI Mentoring Academy. The Director will be responsible for compiling information for annual reporting to the NIH, and will be required to assist with content for competing renewal applications. The incumbent will interact with ETCD Directors at other institutions to consider opportunities for collaboration. This position reports to the CTRI Director.
