Position description

Tenure-Track or Tenured Faculty Position (Open Rank), Health Policy.

The University of California, Irvine, Program in Public Health, Susan and Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences, is seeking applicants for a full-time tenure-track or tenured faculty position in health policy within the Department of Health, Society, and Behavior (DHSB). We invite applications at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level in the area of health policy. Whereas expertise in any of a range of topics (e.g., health services research, health economics, health effects of social policy, health equity, health care organizations, public health) will be considered, the successful candidate’s research program in health policy will directly inform at least one of DHSB’s four focus areas: health disparities, social risk factors, health behavior, and population-based interventions.

The successful candidate will be part of University of California, Irvine’s planned new School of Population and Public Health. Qualifications include a strong record of research accomplishments and publication and experience teaching and mentoring undergraduate and/or graduate students (commensurate with the proposed rank). An ideal candidate will also demonstrate an ability to seek and obtain extramural funding. All applicants must have a doctoral degree in health policy, public health, economics, public policy, sociology, political science, or a related field. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the research and teaching missions of the department, and to help to shape and expand the area of health policy within the School of Population and Public Health through leadership and service.

Review of applications will continue until the position is filled. The Program in Public Health recognizes the value of diversity in its faculty and strongly supports UCI’s mission for equity and inclusiveness. We are committed to ensuring accountability, providing training and education, conducting responsive research and building sustainable partnerships. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply. Qualified applicants must have the demonstrated ability to work with a diverse group of colleagues and to teach and mentor a diverse student body.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UC Irvine conducts institutional reference checks for candidate finalists to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer of appointment into Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full). The institutional reference checks involve contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Irvine requires all candidates of Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into AP RECRUIT as part of their application. If the candidate does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) positions will be subject to institutional reference checks.
