Posting Summary

The successful candidate will join the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center (FXB Center) as its senior scientist. The FXB Center is committed to improving the health of vulnerable women, children, youth, and families–including those infected and affected by HIV– and to building capacity in the communities and systems that serve them. Its mission is to eliminate barriers to interdisciplinary, client-centered, equitable, high-quality health care for those at greatest risk for socially-determined health vulnerabilities. With $36 million in annual grant funding and approximately 350 staff, the FXB Center has a 30 year track record of successfully competing for sponsored programs from the City of Newark, State of New Jersey, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Health Resources and Services Administration. FXB Center emphasizes collaboration, leadership, and innovation in developing solutions through the creation of effective programs that benefit individuals, families and communities, and society as a whole.

The FXB Center has a long and respected history of providing prevention services, care, and treatment for persons living with HIV and their families and for offering innovative healthcare provider training and technical assistance locally, nationally, and globally. The FXB Center has served as a national resource center for four federally-funded national programs: the AETC Program (2002-present); the HIV-Medical Homes Resource Center (HIV-MHRC, 2011-14); the National Resource Center for Adolescent HIV Prevention (2011-14); and as a national organization supporting the CDC’s framework to eliminate mother-to-child HIV transmission and Expert Panel on HIV Reproductive Health and Preconception Care (1999-present). The FXB Center is also a New Jersey local partner of the Northeast/Caribbean AETC and funded by the NJ Department of Health, Division of HIV, TB, and STD services to provide continuing education, technical assistance, and quality improvement coaching to health care providers working in the field of HIV. The Center has an extensive portfolio of collaborative relationships beyond Rutgers with more than 20 memoranda of agreement for clinical services, liaisons with federal training partners such as the CDC HIV/STD Prevention Training Centers, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services, Addiction Technology Transfer Centers, Regional Family Planning Centers and U.S.-based university partners including Columbia University, University of Washington, and the University of California, San Francisco.

The Rutgers School of Nursing is one of the eight schools of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS), which collectively comprise New Jersey’s largest and most influential constellation of academic institutions devoted to nursing, medicine, dentistry, advanced health-related sciences, pharmacy, public health, and the full spectrum of allied health careers.
