The Oregon Institute on Disability and Development (OIDD), which is the University Affiliated Program of the Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU), is currently seeking applicants for a half-time faculty position in nursing. Applicants should have a masters or doctoral degree and be eligible for nursing licensure in Oregon. We prefer candidates to have at least one year of teaching and supervision experience at the university level and to have experience with children with special health needs, particularly neurodevelopmental disabilities. This academic appointment includes an excellent benefit/compensation package commensurate with the applicant's experience. This position is open until filled.


The OIDD is a major program of the Child Development and Rehabilitation Center (CDRC) on the OHSU campus, located in Portland. The greater metropolitan area is comprised of approximately one million people. Portland is a clean, stimulating, politically diverse city with easy access to both mountain and ocean activities. The city ranks high for its livability and beauty.


The OIDD provides interdisciplinary clinical and leadership training in all areas of disabilities and attracts trainees from around the country and internationally. The nursing training coordinator will join an interdisciplinary faculty representing 12 disciplines involved in training, research, model program development, clinical service, technical assistance, and dissemination activities as they relate to neurodevelopmental disabilities. The Oregon program providing Services for Children with Special Health Care Needs is also based within CDRC, making it an ideal setting for relevant teaching and related university and community activities.


The candidate will participate in planning and implementing the overall interdisciplinary leadership training program and specifically will coordinate the training experiences of nursing trainees in the program. This position requires leadership in fulfilling the university's educational, research, clinical service, and community outreach missions.
