We are preparing to hire a new faculty member at Wake Forest. This is a rather unusual opportunity because we have low turnover in our group. We would love it if you would alert any residents or fellows graduating in summer of 2018 who are interested in building an academic career (see info below).
Feel free to put anyone who might be interested in this opportunity in contact with me if they wish to discuss informally. Formal inquiries and applications should go to Dr. Jen Hannum, the chair of our recruiting committee. Thanks for your time.
