About the College/Unit/Department
The Department of Clinical and Administrative Pharmacy in the
College of Pharmacy at the University of Georgia are seeking to
grow and diversify its programs through investments in faculty with
expertise in how genetics, the environment, and lifestyle inform
the most efficacious approaches to prevent and treat diseases of
humans and animals. The hiring is part of a campus-wide
Presidential Interdisciplinary Faculty Hiring that aims to recruit
50 faculty members who will educate students and advance research
in these areas. Rather than being housed exclusively in a single
department, however, the majority of UGA’s newly recruited faculty
will focus on the fusion of cross-cutting areas such as biomedical
sciences, integrative precision agriculture, ethics, cybersecurity,
resilient communities and the environment.
The College of Pharmacy will utilize this initiative to demonstrate
our commitment to diversifying our faculty and ensure that we
maintain and grow the culture of equity and inclusivity in our
College. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values of the
University and Colleges, and this hiring initiative will make use
of the best practices to ensure an inclusive search process. The
Diversity and Inclusion Plan for our College identifies priority
areas for our investments and through the 2021-2022 academic year
we will develop a Diversity Strategic Plan as part of a campus-wide
The focus of this hiring initiative will be in the field of
Precision One Health, and will be part of a cluster spanning the
College of Pharmacy, College of Veterinary Medicine, Savannah River
Ecology Laboratory, College of Public Health, and the College of
Engineering. Areas of research might include, but are not limited
to pharmaceutical outcomes research, health services research,
health policy, pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacoeconomics, social and
administrative sciences, or a related field.
The Initiative seeks to understand how genetics, the environment,
and lifestyle inform the most efficacious approaches to prevent and
treat health conditions. The goal is to design optimal preventive
or therapeutic care that provides the individual patient with the
best treatment at the right time. The initiative follows a
translational science paradigm using evidence-based research to
support the implementation of more refined approaches to improving
the health of individual patients.
The University of Georgia has world-renowned departmental programs
in pharmaceutical health services, outcomes and policy. The
candidate will be appointed in the Department of Clinical and
Administrative Pharmacy with the position being physically located
on the main UGA campus in Athens, GA. The Department of Clinical
and Administrative Pharmacy is home to 32 faculty members focusing
in various areas of the pharmaceutical sciences including health
economics, administration, finance, marketing, epidemiology,
psychology and clinical and experimental therapeutics. The College
is also home to the UGA Center for Drug Discovery, which houses
chemical libraries and facilities for high-throughput screening
against a variety of therapeutic targets.
