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 health systems. Within the broad area of health systems, we particularly encourage applications from candidates who have research expertise in one or more of the following areas: health services research, quality improvement, performance management, payment reform, health care delivery innovations, population health, health equity, and high-value patient-centered health care.
This position is expected to work closely with health system partners in the Phoenix area and across Arizona (e.g., Mayo Clinic or others), in addition to working with faculty across the college and university. The candidate is expected to enter into collaborative, mutually beneficial relationships with health systems and providers in addition to curating their own research agendas commensurate with rank. The candidate is expected to work collaboratively with multiple partners in the community and should demonstrate past experience establishing and sustaining partnerships with multiple stakeholders in a community.
Our college is focused on addressing our Grand Challenges, complex and difficult health problems which require translational research, transformative collaboration and innovation. Through research, academic programs and service, the college is focused on these Grand Challenges: Addressing the systems of health care and the health needs of populations, and optimizing health and human performance of individuals across the lifespan. We are particularly interested in making an impact on populations with significant health disparities. We welcome applications from candidates whose scholarship complements the existing expertise within the College of Health Solutions (https://chs.asu.edu/faculty-research). In addition, we encourage research collaborations with investigators from diverse academic fields and with community partners from diverse communities, particularly those experiencing significant health disparities.
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 or 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 of 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 ASU’s Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, West and Lake Havasu campuses, as well as on Mayo Clinic’s Scottsdale campus. We maintain research facilities in cooperation with multiple community partners, including an expansion of the Phoenix Biomedical Campus that is in development through a public- private partnership that will increase collaborative opportunities with private companies and offer an additional 200,000 square feet of space for research and clinical trials.
