Population Health and Health Equity UMN SPH Faculty Position

25 Oct 2018 4:35 PM | SAVIR Executive Office (Administrator)

The School of Public Health, University of Minnesota, invites applications for a position in Population Health and Health Equity Research at the tenure-track Assistant/Associate or Full Professor levels. Scientific leadership opportunities exist for mid- to senior-level researchers with the appropriate level of demonstrated experience. Specifically, qualified persons may also serve in a leadership role (e.g., an Associate Director) of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Interdisciplinary Research Leaders (IRL) Program, a national program providing support and training to a network of researchers and community leaders conducting action-oriented research to advance a Culture of Health in the United States. As a member of the IRL leadership team, the incumbent will have the opportunity to provide strategic direction to a new national program and provide mentoring and support to population health researchers across the U.S. The national program office for the IRL program is based at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, which includes the Divisions of Biostatistics, Environmental Health Sciences, Epidemiology and Community Health, and Health Policy and Management. The tenure home for the candidate will be in the division that most closely aligns with their academic interests and training.

We are interested in applicants who conduct methodologically rigorous research to advance the field of population health and promote health equity. We are open to applicants from any population health-related discipline (e.g., health policy, epidemiology, sociology, economics, demography), and to applicants with expertise in different research methodologies, including quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods. Areas of methodological focus might include: (1) community-engaged research methodologies; (2) program or policy evaluation; and/or (3) implementation, translation and dissemination of programs, policies, and practices to advance health equity. Ideal applicants should have strong understanding of causal inference and appreciation of interdisciplinary research and a range of engaged methodologies. Our interest in health equity ranges across multiple dimensions (e.g., socioeconomic status, racial, ethnic, indigenous, rural, LGBTQ), structural racism, and the social determinants of health.
