Health Services Research Assistant or Associate Professor in Primary Care and Population Health
The Division of Primary Care and Population Health (PCPH) is seeking a faculty member at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank in the University Medical Line or University Tenure Line, in implementation science and applied delivery science. Successful candidates must not only have training in the general field of health services research but have a strong interest and demonstrated talent in applying that interest at the institutional level. This interest and talent should be matched with methodologic training and strong potential for influential publication. The successful candidate should be able to work well with delivery system innovators and leaders. The clinical content area should be within the broad bounds of our Division to include primary care, general internal medicine, family medicine, geriatrics, and palliative care. Candidates must have an MD or PhD with research interests in health services, or a related field, and post-doctoral training is preferred.
We are seeking dynamic, creative individuals to develop their own research program in collaboration with other faculty members. Successful and qualified candidates will exhibit accomplishment in research that applies theory and evidence to understand and address problems in health care delivery and the potential to test organizational innovations that improve the value. Candidates will also be expected to contribute to our mission through education and teaching including training and mentoring of residents, fellows and other trainees in graduate programs associated with the Stanford University School of Medicine.
The research activities of the Division of Primary Care and Population Health are diverse. Current areas of focus include health policy, quality of care, delivery system innovation, pain and symptom measurement and management, goals of care communication, global health, appropriate use of medications, health informatics and other applications of technology and bioinformatics, organization science, implementation science, health economics, and biomedical ethics. Many crosslinks exist with researchers in other clinical Divisions and Departments as well as the Departments of Health Policy and Epidemiology in the School of Medicine, as well as the Schools of Business and Engineering.
The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching. The major criteria for appointment in the University Medical Line are excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, clinical teaching, and scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine, and institutional service appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fill. Faculty rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate. The candidate should have a growing track record of publication and funding commensurate with experience.
The Department of Medicine, School of Medicine, and Stanford University value faculty who are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. Candidates may optionally include as part of their research or teaching statement a brief discussion of how their work will further these ideals.
