Current Job Openings

Director of the Eleanor Crowder Bjoring Center for Nursing Historical Inquiry

The University of Virginia (UVA) School of Nursing invites applications for an established senior scholar to join the faculty at the rank of Professor or Associate Professor and serve as the Director of the Eleanor Crowder Bjoring Center for Nursing Historical Inquiry (ECBCNHI). The ECBCNHI is dedicated to the preservation and study of nursing history and its contributions to the shaping of the American health care system. This distinctive position requires an eminent historian of nursing who will have opportunities to work with faculty, staff, and students in schools and departments across UVA Grounds. They will support an environment that openly and honestly values difference and allows room for a rich variation of perspectives, beliefs, experiences, and people. The Director of the ECBCNHI will provide leadership in all of these important areas.

The ECBCNHI is one of only two endowed nursing history centers in the world. It hosts a regular series of nursing history forums, sponsors an annual Agnes Dillon Randolph Award and lecture, awards annual research fellowships, and publishes a biannual newsletter, Windows in Time. It hosts scholars from around the world. To learn more about the center please visit the History Center web pages.

Many professional schools in the health sciences – including medicine, public health, and public policy – have individual faculty whose expertise is in the history of the health sciences. The ECBCNHI, housed in the School of Nursing, is one such center. It is recognized internationally for its innovative educational programs and cutting edge research in the history of nursing. It has been successful in garnering grant support, with its faculty generating numerous award-winning scholarly publications and presentations and serving as officers of national nursing history associations.

To be considered candidates must be a distinguished historian of nursing with a substantial independent body of research work. This includes publication in peer-reviewed journals (usually single or lead authored), a track record of extramural funding, and publication of academic monographs or books with university presses. Their research must be based on sound methodology that presents both argument and analysis and must be rigorously executed such that it pushes the boundaries of the field. The candidate must also have evidence of invited lectures and presentations at national and international conferences.

We are seeking a master teacher with at least five years of teaching experience who demonstrates a passion for creating a collaborative scholarly and pedagogical environment to support students and faculty. Candidates must have a PhD in nursing, history, or other relevant field; and if a nurse, be eligible for licensure in the state of Virginia. Joint appointments with other schools or departments within the University of Virginia may be possible. 

Rank and salary will be determined on qualifications and years of experience. Endowed Chair appointments are possible for highly qualified applicants who meet the School of Nursing criteria. Candidates must be able to meet the criteria for the UVA tenured process of Associate or Professor.

Ranked among the top nursing schools in the nation by US News and World Report, UVA aims to create a diverse community of students, scholars, and staff who aspire to achieve excellence in education, research, and clinical experiences. The UVA School of Nursing has been actively engaged in IDEA, our Inclusion, Diversity and Excellence Achievement initiative. We are deeply committed to developing a community that is inclusive, respectful, and considers diversity to be a key part of our excellence. We seek applicants whose experience, research, and teaching have prepared them to substantially contribute to this mission. We welcome, in particular, applicants from groups who have been historically underrepresented in nursing, including racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+, veterans, people with disabilities, and men.
