Open Rank Professor – Center for Remote Patient and Participant Monitoring

The Center for Remote Patient and Participant Monitoring at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine (WFUSM) is searching for emerging faculty leaders in the development and deployment of remote monitoring technologies to join our growing cross-disciplinary team. Faculty with established research programs in clinical areas that involve the use or development of new remote/mobile technologies and patient/participant engagement tools, development of advanced data pipelines, analytical methods such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, and translation of new discoveries and techniques to improve research and clinical care are encouraged to apply.

What You'll Do:

The Center for Remote Patient and Participant Monitoring and the WFUSM provide a unique opportunity for conducting research at scale through our evolving integrated healthcare system, which is currently caring for more than seven million patients in Illinois, Georgia, Alabama, Wisconsin, and the Carolinas. The WFUSM has a long established and ongoing tradition of excellence in basic and clinical research involving remote patient and participant monitoring, including more than $20 million in annual extramural research support, with recent success in securing over $30 million in additional COVID-related funding. Remote monitoring activities range from home serology testing during the COVID pandemic, to the use of devices to monitor physical movement and activity, arrhythmia, glucose, mental health, and sleep, among others. Augmenting these activities is the strong affiliation with the Center for Healthcare Innovation, Center for Artificial Intelligence Research, and Department of Biomedical Engineering, all centrally located on the medical school campus. Moreover, the recent combination of Wake Forest Baptist Health and Atrium Health has ushered in a phase of unprecedented growth and evolution that will involve the recruitment of over 40 new research-intensive faculty, which includes a strong commitment to growth in the emerging field of remote patient and participant monitoring and will further bolster our commitment to the Academic Learning Health System. This recruitment activity, coupled with an evolving integrated healthcare system, will support a broad program of clinical, translational and population research and is an ideal footprint for accelerating research growth and innovation. The use of digital technology to improve health inequities will be considered an important area of focus and a determinant in the consideration of candidates.

What You'll Need:

Investigators, holding a PhD and/or MD, with a current rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor, who have national/international academic stature, a strong track record of extramural funding, and a research portfolio that includes digital and mobile health applications will be considered. The successful candidate will have opportunities for primary and secondary academic appointments in a diverse set of highly successful clinical, basic science, and population health departments, depending on their background and expertise. Please include as attachments to your application a statement describing your research program, CV (including funding history), cover letter, and contact information for at least 3 professional references. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the positions are filled. For pre-submission inquiries, please contact Thavone Khounthikoumane at
