Job summary:

The Medical University of South Carolina, College of Nursing invites applications from highly qualified visionary nurse candidates as a strategic leader for the Mary Swain Endowed Chair in Palliative Care. The College of Nursing has a steep tradition to excellence in education, research, and practice through innovative programs that are responsive to current and emerging healthcare challenges. With a commitment to diversity in all its forms, we seek a nationally recognized interdisciplinary leader with strength in research, a commitment to excellence, and a demonstrated track record of successful collaboration within palliative care.  Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications. This tenure line faculty position is a full-time, 12-month appointment.

The Mary Swain Endowed Chair in Palliative Care will focus on growing the College of Nursing’s focus on palliative care across our educational programs, in practice and in collaboration with our practice partners, and in our scholarship and research, with the goal of promoting quality of life care and decreasing burden for individuals, families/caregivers across the palliative care continuum.  Our interest in palliative care is critically important in South Carolina, where 62% (3.1 million) of the population lives with at least one chronic illness and 20% (1.3 million) have at least two chronic illnesses – many of these illnesses are serious and life-limiting conditions where palliative can make a difference in quality of life for individuals and their caregivers.

The Endowed Chair reports directly to the Dean.  Educational responsibilities may include advising and chairing and/or serving on graduate student committees, direct teaching (primarily in graduate online courses), and/or curriculum work. Additional responsibilities also include mentoring students, fellows, and junior faculty, college and university committee service, as well as regional and national professional activities. The Endowed Chair will collaborate with other regional, state, national, and international leaders to advocate for public policy to improve health care of individuals, across the lifespan, who require palliative care.  

Founded in 1824, The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) continues the tradition of excellence in education, research and patient care. MUSC educates and trains more than 3,000 students and 700 residents in six colleges and has nearly 13,000 employees, including approximately 1,500 faculty members. As the state’s only academic health science center and largest non-federal employer in Charleston, the university and its affiliates have collective annual budgets in excess of $2.4 billion, with an annual economic impact of nearly $4 billion and annual research funding in excess of $250 million. MUSC operates a 700-bed medical center, which includes a nationally recognized children's hospital, the NCI-designated Hollings Cancer Center, a Level I trauma center, Institute of Psychiatry, more than 100 outreach locations across the state, and South Carolina’s only transplant center.
