Associate/Full Professor Science of Health Care Delivery
The Arizona State University’s College of Health Solutions (CHS) Science of Health Care Delivery program is seeking a full-time, 9-month tenure-eligible faculty member at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor in the area of the science of health care delivery.
The Science of Health Care Delivery (SHCD) program at ASU's College of Health Solutions is the first of its kind in the country and represents the university's deliberate investment in future health care decision-makers. The SCHD program focuses on developing a broad knowledge base for designing a better health care delivery system. As a research unit that values interdisciplinary approaches, we particularly welcome applications from candidates whose scholarship is centered in quality improvement/performance management, health services research, health policy research, health care finance, or health equity. However, applications from experts in all SHCD-related disciplines will be considered.
All College of Health Solutions faculty address one or more of our three core areas: 1) The systems of health and the health needs of populations; 2) Health and human performance of individuals across the lifespan; and 3) Precision health. Across these areas, we work to address complex and difficult health problems that require transformative collaboration, translational research, and innovation. We are particularly interested in making an impact on traditionally underserved and under-represented populations that experience significant health disparities.
CHS also has a core focus on community-engaged and translational research in keeping with ASU’s broad commitment to leveraging the university’s place. Thus, we are seeking candidates for this position with strong interest and experience in working with community partners (e.g., local health systems), and are seeking candidates who are interested in building such partnerships across Arizona and the Phoenix area.
Responsibilities for this position include developing and maintaining a successful research program, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, mentoring students and junior faculty, and providing service to the program and university as well as to the community and profession. The ideal candidate will present evidence of a successful research trajectory commensurate with the rank of Associate Professor/ Professor, including a sustained extramural funding and peer-reviewed publications, and a strong commitment to high quality teaching and mentoring.
At ASU and the College of Health Solutions, we work to maximize opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds, abilities and perspectives. We value and encourage cultural and intellectual diversity, and strive to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for all faculty, staff and students, which we believe is critical to our success as a community. All individuals who can strengthen the diversity of our academic community are encouraged to apply, and will be considered without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other basis protected by law.
About the College of Health Solutions
The College of Health Solutions is committed to translating scientific health research and discovery into practice to improve health outcomes through education, research, and service. We equip students with the knowledge and skills to influence healthier lifestyle choices; develop creative interventions to improve the health of people and populations; analyze and translate large amounts of health data into solutions; and maximize the technology, science, business and application of diagnostics. Our research programs encompass basic science, discovery science, clinical trials, intervention science and measurement of health outcomes. In all cases, our faculty use interdisciplinary approaches to address the complex systems that underpin health problems. We are highly collaborative, transparent and team-oriented. Our innovative organizational structure includes translational teams that move science from labs into communities with evidence-based interventions that make a difference, as well as affinity networks where teams of people work together to improve methodologies and processes. All of our programs, in and out of the classroom, are designed with the goal of improving the health of people and communities.
Current training programs include behavioral health, biomedical diagnostics, biomedical informatics, exercise science, health promotion, health sciences, kinesiology, medical studies, nutrition, population health, the science of health care delivery, and speech and hearing science. Our programs are offered at the ASU Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, Polytechnic, West and Lake Havasu campuses, as well as on Mayo Clinic’s campus in north Phoenix.
