Tenure-Track Assistant or Associate Professor, Health Policy and Management Department

The Health Policy and Management Department at the Yale School of Public Health is seeking applications for a new tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in the area of health policy. We welcome applications from different disciplinary backgrounds including, but not limited to, political science, health economics, health policy, medical sociology, and health services research. We are particularly interested in individuals who are interested in conducting rigorous empirical research in health policy or health services, including studies of the policy-making process, policy implementation, and policy modeling, as well as research examining how organizational behavior, financial incentives, individual decision-making and regulatory constraints affect the delivery and quality of health care.

Candidates must have a doctoral degree by the start of appointment, a well-developed research plan, publications in peer-reviewed journals (or the potential to publish therein), and the ability to compete effectively for extramural funding.  In addition, the selected candidate will be expected to teach and participate in training masters-level and doctoral-level students.

Information about the Department and YSPH can be found at http://publichealth.yale.edu/hpm/ and http://publichealth.yale.edu, respectively. Information about Yale can be located at: www.yale.edu. As a member of the Yale community, the selected candidate will gain access to the many resources and opportunities available at Yale.

Applicants are encouraged to submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, a research paper, and three letters of reference.  Review of applications will commence on October 15, 2016, although applications received through December 1, 2016 will be given full consideration in the initial selection of candidates. Applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.   Only complete applications will be considered, although more senior faculty may request sending letters of recommendation later in the process.  Please apply on-line at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/7863
