The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis seeks to hire a visionary and dynamic associate dean for research to lead the school’s research program and serve as a member of its senior leadership team.

The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis was founded in 2009 with a $100 million grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. Through this financial support and a shared vision to advance health, faculty, students and staff aggressively launched a research program focused on improving health and reshaping health systems in partnership with communities served. Together, they work to confront the barriers to population health and the challenges burdening health care in the U.S. Researchers strive to assure that prevention and care places individuals, their families and their communities at the center of all they do.

  • lead the development of a young research program focused on rapidly and effectively improving care
  • join a creative faculty and further develop and hire tenure-track research faculty over the next five years

  • earn a generous compensation package that includes relocation and start-up funds
  • work from a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility, Betty Irene Moore Hall, which is designed to sustain our vision of innovation
