The Department of Emergency Medicine (DoEM) at Dartmouth Health and the Geisel School of Medicine is seeking a highly qualified Clinician-Scientist to be our inaugural Vice-Chair of Research.

The DoEM at Dartmouth is a young, dynamic department which seeks to make substantive and meaningful contributions to the field of emergency medicine.  As an Ivy League research university, Dartmouth is a leading teaching and research institution and our faculty benefit from highly collaborative interactions across the Dartmouth campus including other clinical departments at Dartmouth Health, the Geisel School of Medicine, Dartmouth’s College of Arts and Sciences, Thayer School of Engineering and Tuck School of Business.  Current areas of research in the DoEM include rural health care delivery, the intersection of critical care and prehospital medicine, point of care ultrasound including device development, wilderness medicine and geriatric emergency medicine. 

We are actively involved in numerous multi-institutional projects including substance use disorder, pediatric infectious disease, and maternal health care. 

We are seeking an established researcher who will not only maintain an independent research program but who is also committed to mentoring others and to advancing a culture of inquiry and academic excellence across the entire department.

  • Work with the Chair and Chief Research Officer to advance equity in the research community at Dartmouth Health and Geisel School of Medicine.
  • Have excellent clinical skills - all Dartmouth Health physicians are expected to work clinically, but the number of Emergency Department shifts is negotiable.
  • Have a research interest that addresses an important and relevant clinical issue in our field that either complements our existing research interests or aligns with interests of other departments at Dartmouth Health, Geisel School of Medicine or across the Dartmouth campus creating the opportunity for cross-disciplinary collaboration.
  • Qualify for an academic appointment at the Geisel School of Medicine at the rank of Associate Professor or above.


  • Work closely with Departmental leadership to create a strategic plan for research.
  • Assist the Chair in fostering a departmental culture of academic inquiry and to enhance our standing within the academic community.
  • Work with the Chair and the VC of Faculty Affairs to mentor faculty interested in research, to create mechanisms to train a cadre of junior faculty to be future research leaders, and facilitate advancement in academic rank.
  • Expand a research infrastructure that includes grant writing and administration, advanced statistical planning and analysis, technical writing, mentorship, and clinical research operations.
  • Work with residency leadership to develop a robust research curriculum.
  • Enable faculty and residents to succeed and make meaningful contributions to our specialty.
  • Assist the Chair in ensuring that the conduct of research in the Department of Emergency Medicine is held to the highest ethical standards and is in compliance with the policies and procedures set forth by the D-H Research Compliance Officer and the academic standards of the Geisel School of Medicine.
  • Assist the Chair and Administrative leadership in creating and maintaining a research budget.
  • Work with D-H research leadership, including the Chief Research Officer, and the Geisel School of Medicine to maximize opportunities for collaboration with other research teams at D-H, Geisel, and across campus, and allow us to maximize our opportunities to utilize institutional research resources.
