The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) invites applicants and nominations for the role of Director of the Resuscitation Research Center (RRC) within the Department of Emergency Medicine. Under the direction of the Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine, or his designee, the RRC Director will personally lead and oversee, as well as mentor and train others, in the conduct of prospective, clinical and translational, interventional, Emergency Medicine-related research in both out-of-hospital and in-hospital settings.  The ideal candidate will be a clinician-scientist or scientist with a prior history of leading teams in the conduct of extramurally-funded prospective, interventional, and/or clinical research, with strong ties to Emergency Medical Services (EMS), resuscitation, and emergency cardiac care.  Given the interdisciplinary and interdependent nature of the Department of Emergency Medicine and the Resuscitation Research Center within it, the candidate must demonstrate the ability to effectively liaise with leaders and other stakeholders within and outside of the Department, as well as develop a strong, strategic development plan for the Resuscitation Research Center.

Led by Dr. Ian B. K. Martin, the Department of Emergency Medicine is a dynamic, innovative, and rapidly growing with over 90 primary faculty members providing coverage at 8 clinical sites across Southeast Wisconsin.  The Resuscitation Research Center is a departmental, faculty-run center with a storied 25-year history of conducting innovative and impactful research focused largely on improving out-of-hospital and in-hospital emergency cardiac care, clinical practice, and patient outcomes.  Over its history the Resuscitation Research Center has been extremely successful in conducting grant and industry-sponsored research.

General responsibilities include:

  • Design, implement, and communicate a strategic plan for growing extramurally funded, prospective, interventional, clinical and translational research in coordination with the Division Chief of Milwaukee County EMS, Vice- Chair of Research and Scholarship, and the System Chairman of Emergency Medicine.
  • Develop, oversee, and implement of extramurally supported prospective, interventional, out-of-hospital and in-hospital, Emergency Medicine-related clinical trials for the Resuscitation Research Center.
  • Design and grow clinical and translational collaborative research across Milwaukee County Emergency Medical Services (EMS), the Department of Emergency Medicine, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and the wider community.
  • Design, implement, and evaluate focused research training and mentorship programs in consultation and partnership with the Vice-Chair for Research and Scholarship in the Department of Emergency Medicine and his/her designees.
  • Maintain a personal portfolio of extramurally-funded research program.
  • Develop and communicate departmental prospective, interventional, clinical and translational research strategies in coordination with the Division Chief of Milwaukee County EMS, Vice-Chair of Research and Scholarship, and the System Chairman of Emergency Medicine.
  • Play a leadership role on key research- and scholarship-related committees.
  • Represent the Department internally to the College and externally to the Milwaukee County community with respect to relevant Emergency Medicine-related out-of-hospital and in-hospital clinical, translational, and interventional research.

The successful candidate will demonstrate a passion for the mission and vision of MCW’s Department of Emergency Medicine and will possess a strong record of conducting impactful scholarship and leading research teams as appropriate for faculty appointment at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor in the Medical College of Wisconsin Medical School.

In addition, candidates should possess the following qualifications, experience, and skills:

  • Minimum of an MD, DO, and/or PhD, or foreign medical equivalent.
  • If a clinician, eligible for full unrestricted licensure to practice in the State of Wisconsin, and be board certified in his/her field of expertise.
  • A distinguished academic career in clinical and translational research evidenced through peer-reviewed publication and independent extramural funding.
  • Ability to create a strategic vision, provide oversight in research conduct and stimulate prospective, interventional, Emergency Medicine-related research endeavors.
  • Professional service and research recognition by national organizations.

Preferred Experience:

  • Research team and administrative leadership roles in a complex, multi-faceted university, or academic medical center, with demonstrated strategic and implementation skills.
