Public Health Foundation Enterprises (PHFE) invites applications for the position of Director of
Community Programs within the HIV Research Section in San Franciscoís Department of
Public Health. The HIV Research Section is a grant-funded research unit affiliated with the San
Francisco Department of Public Health and the University of California San Francisco. The HIV
Research Section has been searching for new and innovative ways to fight HIV/AIDS since the
onset of the epidemic in the early 1980s. Its leadership in the field has grown since results of its
first study of gay men became a world-renowned source for understanding HIV infection and
disease. The HIV Research Section has pursued its mission to develop interventions that
reduce the impact of HIV and AIDS locally and globally through several strategies, including
identifying risk factors for HIV infection and disease progression; conducting clinical trials of a
variety of HIV prevention strategies (e.g., preventive vaccines, pre-exposure prophylaxis, peer
counseling and peer health navigation); and engaging highly affected communities in the
research process, with potential to share successful engagement strategies with researchers of
other disease models.
This position offers an exciting opportunity for investigators to work in a dynamic and
collaborative environment. The Sectionís unique position offers the team of Directors a high
degree of autonomy, while providing a platform to influence the field of HIV locally, nationally,
and internationally. Directors enjoy the flexibility to explore their interests in alignment with the
HIV Research Sectionís recently completed Strategic Plan. Early- and mid-career investigators
will receive mentoring from senior HIV prevention investigators in grant-writing, manuscript
development, and study design and implementation. For more about the Section, please visit
