    The Collaboration for Research Integrity and Transparency (CRIT) is now accepting applications for four key staff members. CRIT is a new interdisciplinary initiative, jointly led by the Yale Global Health Justice Partnership (GHJP), the Media Freedom & Information Access Clinic (MFIA), and the Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE) at Yale-New Haven Hospital. We are seeking:

    • A program director
    • Two research and advocacy fellows, and

    Yale University considers applicants for employment without regard to, and does not discriminate on the basis of, an individual's sex, race, color, religion, age, disability, status as a veteran, or national or ethnic origin; nor does Yale discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.

    The Collaboration for Research Integrity and Transparency (CRIT)

    CRIT is a new collaboration that will be launched at Yale in July 2016. CRIT’s mission is to ensure that the evidence base that supports decision-making regarding pharmaceuticals and other medical products is accurate, comprehensive, and accessible. The initiative aims to strengthen the integrity of the research used to make decisions about medical products by ensuring the data are both rigorous and reliable, by promoting full access to all clinical trial information, and by supporting independent research and analysis of those data. It also will work to achieve a legal and regulatory environment that supports the production and sharing of high quality data. CRIT will undertake academic research, advocacy, and litigation to inform and shape the policy environment in this area.

    Assistant/Associate or Visiting Professor

    Tenure-Track Clinic Director-Community Development Clinic

    UMass Law is committed to graduating justice-centered lawyers prepared to practice responsibly and creatively. The school’s two in-house clinics were developed to meet critical community needs. Because approximately a quarter of each incoming class is admitted into our Public Interest Law Fellowship program, there is much energy for using the law to increase access to justice. Because UMass Law is dedicated to creating access to legal education for groups underrepresented in the profession, our student body has an appreciation for the disparities in access to justice, the difference law can make, and the importance of understanding how the law operates in the real world for real people.

    We seek to hire a tenure-track or visiting professor to serve as an in-house clinic director. While we have a preference to continue the work of our Community Development Clinic, which provides representation to entrepreneurial businesses in the South Coast region, we are open to modification of the type of work in which our Community Development Clinic engages. The faculty director will also teach one section of a doctrinal course each semester, likely Business Organizations.

    UMass Law is located on the South Coast of Massachusetts, about one hour from Boston and thirty minutes from Providence and Cape Cod. As the only public law school in Massachusetts, UMass is poised to become a leader in stewarding justice in the state, and the new tenure-track clinic director will be an integral part of that growth.

    Qualifications: J.D., licensed in Massachusetts within one year of hire. Five years’ combined law practice and law clinic experience.

    To apply please submit online @ http://www.umassd.edu/hr/employmentopportunities/ a letter of interest, current resume and the contact information for three professional references.

    The review of applications will continue until the position is filled.

    The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth values excellence, diversity, transparency, student-centeredness, accountability, innovation, engagement, collaboration, collegiality and safety.
