Clements, Jr. Chair in Cardiovascular Disease Prevention (http://news.emory.edu/stories/2018/01/rollins_endowed_chair/).

The individual holding the Stephen Clements Chair will contribute eminence to RSPH and Emory’s mission of scholarship, teaching and service. The successful candidate will lead a cutting-edge program of research and will bring significant extramural funding and mentoring experience. The position will benefit from collaborative opportunities with existing programs in cardiovascular disease (e.g., EPICORE, ECCRI, METRIC T32), diabetes (e.g., Emory Global Diabetes Research Center, Georgia Center for Diabetes Translation Research), and the strong collaborative environment that brings together the RSPH, the School of Medicine and the other units of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center.
