  • Ability to collaborate with a diverse group of colleagues as co-investigator or project lead.
  • Strong interpersonal skills, organizational skills, and emotional intelligence.
  • Evidence of a national reputation for one’s scientific program, as demonstrated by a combination of: publication in moderate/high impact scientific journals, national service (e.g., scientific peer reviewer, service to professional societies), and invited talks as lead presenter at national scientific conferences.
    • For appointment at the Senior Investigator level, evidence of a national and/or international reputation is required.
  • A demonstrated commitment to mentoring and developing the careers of junior scientists and staff.
  • Involvement in promoting equity, inclusion, and diversity and a commitment to KPWHRI’s equity, inclusion, and diversity efforts.

KPWHRI is an internationally recognized research organization that conducts epidemiologic, health services, preventative, and clinical research to improve health, health equity, and health care for all people. It is one of eight regional research institutes within Kaiser Permanente all of which conduct public-domain science. That is, while work of the Institute advances care delivery within Kaiser Permanente, our research is not proprietary. We seek to generate knowledge and transform health and health care for all. The Institute’s research is primarily funded through federal grants and contracts that total more than $60 million annually. Our position within Kaiser Permanente Washington (www.kp.org/wa), a not-for-profit health care delivery system headquartered in Seattle, provides a natural laboratory to study important health issues through clinical trials and observational studies which leverage our unique access to members and health care data.
