Job Function


Assistant/Associate Dean of Clinical and Translational Research

Tulane University School of Medicine (Tulane SoM) seeks candidates for the newly created position of Assistant/Associate Dean of Clinical and Translational Research. The Assistant/Associate Dean will be an accomplished scientist and visionary leader in funded clinical research with experience working within a matrixed academic environment.

 The Assistant/Associate Dean will be expected to enhance and deepen research collaborations with the Tulane School of Medicine, health system and cross-university initiatives. This position will also be accountable for the growth and development of the Tulane Center for Clinical Research (TCCR). A key responsibility for this role will be the creation of a strategic plan that features clinical impact, competitive analysis, business plans, and performance management. The overarching approach will be to synergize the many elements needed to conduct the full-range of clinical trials from Phase 1 to Phase 4, bench to bedside, investigator-initiated to industry- or federally sponsored research.

 In this newly created and highly visible role, this individual will work closely and collaboratively with the incoming Senior Director of Clinical Research for the TCCR, the academic and operational leadership of Tulane Centers such as the Tulane Center for Aging, Tulane Brain Institute, Tulane Cancer Center and the Vice President of Research from the University to create harmonious programs and standards of excellence.  The current research portfolio is wide ranging and includes trials in infectious diseases and vaccinations, cardiovascular disease and metabolism, aging, pulmonology, dermatology and others. Tulane is uniquely poised to conduct impactful research in an area of the country that is underserved and diverse, making it a perfect representation of many areas of the globe. The need is vast: rates of life-threatening diseases including obesity, cancer, and cardiovascular disease are astronomically high – all demand rigorous scientific inquiry to prevent and treat.

The Assistant/Associate Dean will embody exemplary strategic thinking, quality, customer service, and fiscal responsibility in an era of immense change in the Greater New Orleans community. The Tulane School of Medicine has recently merged with LCMC Health (which grew out of Louisiana Children’s Medical Center). Its constituents include East Jefferson Hospital in Metairie, the University Medical Center in downtown New Orleans and other facilities throughout Southeast Louisiana.

Founded as the Medical College of Louisiana, Tulane University School of Medicine is the second oldest medical school in the Deep South and the 15th oldest US medical school. The school recruits top faculty, researchers, and students from around the world, and pushes the boundaries of medicine with groundbreaking research and surgical advances. Looking to the future, we are actively engaged in a school-wide strategic planning process to outline a coherent vision with an actionable and sustainable plan to differentiate our School over the next five to seven years.

Tulane University is one of 65 members of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU), comprised of the nation's leading research institutions of higher learning. To be part of this elite “club”, the research accomplishments of the institution are considered to be superior. Clinical research endeavors across the school are increasing: The School/University seeks to specifically increase industry-sponsored research across the enterprise. Its current NIH ranking is 61. Tulane SoM has a storied record of achievement in research, patient care, and teaching.

Tulane Center for Clinical Research (TCCR)

Tulane Center for Clinical Research (TCCR), previously known as Clinical Translational Unit (CTU) provides a broad range of services to offer clinical trial coordination and assist in the initiation and conduct of research. TCCR is currently supporting protocols in Epidemiology, Genetics, General Medicine, Pediatrics, Behavioral Sciences, Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease, Endocrinology, vaccines, and renal disease, as well as protocols related to other areas of research, such as Bioengineering.

Tulane Center for Clinical Research (TCCR) is one element of Tulane's participation in the LA CaTS NIH collaborative project grant. The TCCR aims to facilitate cross-disciplinary, bi-directional research from the laboratory to the clinic. Providing the core resources so important to researchers, the TCCR facilitates clinical and translational research activities at Tulane University. The facility includes state of the art equipment aids for the completion of many of the protocol-required subject assessments.

The existing clinical trials center known as the TCCR will also be expanding to the new academic medical center at East Jefferson, so that the opportunity for an impactful, dynamic, forward-thinking clinical research Assistant/Associate Dean is vast. Many of the faculty subscribers to the TCCR have NIH-funding to support their endeavors.
