Hariri Endowed Chair in Research

The Rafic Hariri School of Nursing (HSON) at the American University of Beirut (AUB) is seeking applications from distinguished scholars for the Hariri endowed chair in research. This chair offers exceptional opportunities for a senior scholar with a strong record of funded research and demonstrated capacity to develop research expertise among early career faculty members to develop and lead the Centre for Research at HSON and to develop an interdisciplinary PhD program in close collaboration with other disciplines at AUB.

AUB, founded in 1866 as the first American University abroad, continues to attract extraordinary students and to provide education following the American model. HSON, founded in 1905, was the first nursing school in the Middle East. Its mission is to promote the highest educational standards of excellence, integrity, and professionalism in the science of nursing. The American University of Beirut Medical Center is JCI accredited, has received Magnet status, and offers excellent possibilities for interdisciplinary collaborative research.

HSON currently has BSN and MSN programs; both programs are registered in the Department of Education of New York State and are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) in the USA.
