Associate/Full Professor & Director - Systems of Health


The Arizona State University’s College of Health Solutions (CHS) is seeking a full-time, tenure-eligible faculty member at the rank of either Associate or Full Professor. This position would also serve as the Director of the College of Health Solutions’ (CHS) Systems of Health Initiative.


This position provides a unique opportunity to lead and grow the College’s focus on systems of population health and health care, with support from the faculty and university, including expanding the College’s robust research agendas and teaching programs in this focus area. To facilitate growth, the director will collaborate with the academic program directors and faculty to recommend faculty hiring needs, provide data and recommendations regarding budgetary needs, as well as promote the success of the ongoing research and teaching in this focus area. The director will also lead efforts to develop sustained and meaningful relations with health systems, community organizations, government agencies, and payers at the local, state, and national levels.


Through teaching, academic programs, service and research, all faculty at the College of Health Solutions address one or more of our three major areas of focus: 1) The systems of health and health care; 2) Health and human performance of individuals across the lifespan; 3) Personalized interventions through precision health. Across these areas, we work to address complex and difficult health problems which require transformative collaboration, translational research, and innovation. We are particularly interested in making an impact on populations with significant health disparities.


Additional faculty responsibilities for this position include developing and maintaining a successful research program, teaching undergraduate and/or graduate courses, mentoring students and junior faculty, and providing service to the program and university as well as to the community and profession. The ideal candidate will present evidence of a successful research trajectory commensurate with the rank of Professor or Associate Professor, including a sustained extramural funding and peer-reviewed publications, and a strong commitment to high quality teaching and mentoring.
