Health Policy & Management Tenure-Track Faculty Position

 

The past year has magnified the ways that inequities—whether due to race, gender, sexuality, or income—contribute to health disparities. These inequities are a major public health threat and demand a concerted, interdisciplinary effort. At the College of Public Health, we dedicate ourselves to public health in all its parameters, from epidemiology to nursing, from social work to rehabilitation sciences. Social justice has always driven our work, understanding that individual outcomes are intricately tied to the larger systems we inhabit, is the foundation of our college.

The Temple University College of Public Health’s interprofessional culture fosters collaboration both within and outside the College.  We value differences among our faculty and believe that we can better serve and understand our Philadelphia community and beyond through the diversity of our individual faculty and our disciplines. Join us in our mission to develop progressive, compassionate researchers, practitioners, and clinicians to build a better tomorrow, grounded in creating the environments and health infrastructure that will make us the healthiest nation.

The Position and Qualifications. The Department of Health Services Administration & Policy seeks Tenure Track Faculty in health service research and health policy and management to join us in our mission to improve population health through research on the role and effectiveness of health services, health policy and management, health informatics, and health information management, with a special focus on reducing and eliminating disparities in an urban setting. The position can start in the Summer or Fall of 2022. The ideal candidates will have an earned doctorate in health policy, public health, and social science disciplines. Although candidates with agendas in all areas will be considered, the department has a special interest in candidates with research interests in global health, public health emergency management, population health, health care policy, mental health, health economics, and health service research. The candidate will have demonstrated abilities or promise to develop a record of outstanding research productivity, obtain external funding, and contribute to the department’s teaching mission. Professional experience in public health, health services, or health administration is desirable but not required.

The Department. The Department of Health Services Administration and Policy is comprised of accredited academic programs, including BS in Health Information Management, MPH in Health Policy and Management, MS in Health Informatics, PhD in Health Policy and Health Services Research, and a proposed Ph.D. in Health Informatics. The Department also offers graduate certificates (in Health Informatics, Public Health Law Research, and Clinical Health Services Research) and undergraduate minors (in Global Health and Health Information Management). Faculty are engaged in teaching, research, and entrepreneurial activities with about 300 students. The Department contributes to the College’s BS in Public Health and BS in Health Professions. Research emphases are on the impact of laws and policies on health, quality of care, healthcare financing, disparities and access to care, evolving methodologies for big data analytics, and the impact of health information technologies.

The College. Devoted to an interprofessional environment for education, research, and practice, the CEPH-accredited College of Public Health consists of academic units in the public health disciplines, health professions, and the School of Social Work, enrolling approximately 4,200 students. The College’s research aims to understand the fundamental factors that affect the health and well-being of individuals and populations by examining health problems through foundational research, policy and practice, and the development and dissemination of evidence-based interventions. We focus on social determinants of health and social justice with strengths in cancer, obesity, HIV, substance abuse, mental illness, mobility research, cognition and language, developmental disabilities, organ transplantation and aging. CPH research is funded by the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, National Science Foundation, Gates Foundation, and other major private foundation, state and federal agencies. The College is home to an Office for Community Engaged Research and Practice, the Center for Obesity Research and Education, and the Collaborative on Community Inclusion. The Office of Clinical Affairs and Interprofessional Education leads our clinical activities, including the COVID-19 RapidVax effort and forward-looking IPE within the College and throughout the university. The college is staffed by a robust complement of seasoned professionals including robust offices of Communications and Marketing, Information Technology, Sponsored Research, and Academic Affairs.
