This is a tenure-ladder position, with the academic rank to be determined in accordance with the successful candidate's experience and accomplishments.

Faculty in the department of health policy and management conduct research in the broad areas of decision science, health economics, health services and access, and public health practice and policy. Decision science faculty conduct applied and methodological research, and address important decisions relevant to policy and practice, from clinical decisions facing a patient, to public health decisions that affect a population, to environment and climate decisions that will affect the health of future generations.

The Center for Health Decision Science (CHDS) brings together a community of core and affiliated faculty, research staff, doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows, that collectively work to improve population health through decision science research, education, and policy translation. In addition to applied and methodological research, faculty teach in the core decision science curriculum, mentor scholars and practitioners from different academic disciplines, and engage in numerous educational initiatives to increase "decision analytic literacy" in public health and strengthen analytic capacity globally. Faculty are committed to achieving an impact through stakeholder engagement, effective communication with a variety of audiences, including policy makers, practitioners and the public, and cross-sectoral collaboration.
