Areas of interest include but are not limited to economics, sociology, psychology and quantitative methods, and applications of these disciplines to health disparities, social determinants of health, quality of care, aging, cancer and health policy. Rank and tenure status will be commensurate with qualifications.

The University of Chicago is a vibrant center of scientific discovery and innovation, with abundant opportunities for multi-disciplinary collaboration.

Competitive research space and start-up funding will be available.
