Health Policy and Management
Assistant/Associate Professor of Health Policy and Management
The Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard School of Public Health is seeking candidates for the position of assistant or associate professor to teach and conduct research in health policy. This is a tenure-ladder position, with the academic rank to be determined in accordance with the successful candidate’s experience and productivity.
We are particularly interested in candidates with scholarly interests in quality of care, although the successful candidate should possess a broad knowledge of both health care and health policy. Candidates will be expected to undertake empirical research on quality of care and related topics employing statistical and econometric methods. Candidates should have demonstrated the experience and skills necessary to play a central role in research and teaching.
Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in medicine (M.D.) and additional training in research. Advanced graduate level training in health policy or another closely related social science discipline is highly desired, but not required. We expect that this individual will conduct research on quality of care and related delivery system issues. Other qualifications include advanced methodological training, evidence of ability or the potential to manage national and international projects, to collaborate with professionals in other disciplines, and to teach health policy and management courses at the graduate level.
Please send a letter of application, including a statement of current and future research interests, curriculum vitae, sample publications, and the names of four referees to the address below. Applicants should ask their referees to write independently to this address. The electronic submission of application documents to the email below is welcome.
