St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (St. Jude)

Manager-Community HIV Program

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (St. Jude)

Memphis, TN, United States


Since its inception in 1960, St. Jude has been moved by the pursuit of audacious goals: eradicating pediatric cancer, defining its genomic landscape, tracking the health of over 4,000 childhood cancer survivors. As we’ve grown, so have our goals, and we’ve been a trailblazer in pursuing treatment of HIV in children and youth since the 1980s. Today, we continue to forge brave new paths in this work, and it’s our aim to do no less than bring an end the HIV epidemic.

Here at St. Jude in the Infectious Diseases Clinical Program, we know that we are stronger together, and we value the power wrought of leveraging community partnerships in serving our primary clientele: the children and youth at risk of contracting or living with HIV. We lead a coalition of 25+ community partners that share a common goal of optimizing HIV prevention and treatment, and as the Manager of our Community HIV Program, you’ll be charged with continuing the upward-trajectory of this program, providing a safe space for innovation and candor and leading think-tanks focused on eliminating the hurdles faced by our community in its common pursuits, whether it’s the continued goal of ending the HIV epidemic or tackling new challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to lead an established team of community outreach specialists, serving as a mentor and sounding board as they navigate the complexities of engaging  and retaining children and youth in clinical care and research related to HIV Prevention and Treatment. Our work requires a keen knowledge of our clientele and the community, and your expertise will help shape the team’s continued growth by pioneering new partnerships and promotional avenues.

St. Jude sets the standard for the efficacy of collaborative partnerships on a global stage, and we encourage applicants whose aspirations match the caliber of our work. If you’re diplomatic and driven, thrive in an environment that demands innovation, and passionate about harnessing the power of community to drive real change for children, we’d love to have you apply.
