Duke University School of Nursing is accepting applications for its Vice Dean for Research position. At the forefront of nursing education, research and clinical practice, the faculty, staff and students at the Duke School of Nursing seek to improve health outcomes for real people, families and communities, and conducting groundbreaking research is just one of the several ways that goal is carried out. The Vice Dean will have a key role in advancing research and science at the school.
In fiscal year 2021, the school became positioned as 5th in NIH funding after having received more than $8.4 million in annual funds from NIH.

Some of the NIH-funded projects focus on efforts to improve patient and population health outcomes locally and globally.
