This individual will be expected to forge new relationships and create new initiatives that respond to trends in patient care and clinical information, scientific, interdisciplinary, and clinical research, including exploring with faculty new models of scholarly communication, publishing, and the challenges of data curation. The successful candidate will also contribute to the profession, and is expected to pursue scholarly research of his/her own, or as a member of health science research teams.
