Help Wanted: Executive Director, Washington D.C.

December 22, 2000

This week we received a job description and the following summary from the Forum for Collaborative HIV Research:

"The Forum for Collaborative HIV Research, a project of the Center for Health Services Research and Policy at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services ("the Center"), is seeking an Executive Director. The Director is an employee of the University, hired at the level of Senior Staff Research Scientist and can seek Faculty Appointment at the University. The Director reports to the Forum's Executive Committee and the Director of the Center.

"The mission of the Forum is to facilitate discussion on emerging issues in HIV clinical research and the translation of research results into care. The Forum is governed by an Executive Committee that sets the Forum's agenda and priorities. The Forum is a coalition of constituencies engaged in and affected by HIV research and drug development, including government agencies, pharmaceutical companies, clinical researchers, health care providers and patient advocates. The Forum helps to identify gaps and impediments in optimizing the medical management of HIV disease, develops recommendations to fill those gaps, and then catalyzes constituents to implement those recommendations. The Forum was founded in 1997.

"The Director will oversee all Forum projects and administration, supervise Forum staff, be responsible for fund-raising and financial oversight, facilitate the Executive Committee, and oversee all Forum communications and publications. The Director will, with the assistance of Forum staff and the Executive Committee, develop plans for project implementation, develop budgets, facilitate project planning committees, represent the Forum at meetings and conferences, speak about the Forum to its constituents, and report on Forum activities to the Center and the Executive Committee.

"Qualifications: The Forum Director should have extensive experience in a scientific, health care, health services or health care policy field related to HIV/AIDS. The Director should have substantial knowledge about HIV/AIDS research and drug development. The Director should also have significant administrative and managerial experience in a government, other non-profit or private entity setting that would demonstrate ability to manage an office staff, finances and organizational activities. The Director should possess a post-graduate degree, or have other substantially equivalent training that is relevant to HIV/AIDS.
