OHIO STATE COLLEGES OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND MEDICINE
The College of Public Health (CPH), in partnership with the College of Medicine, Division of General Internal Medicine (GIM) at The Ohio State University (OSU), is searching for a candidate for a research faculty position at the rank of Research Assistant Professor, Research Associate Professor or Research Professor. The successful candidate should have expertise in health services research, comparative effectiveness research (CER), or a related field, along with a record of funded research and peer-reviewed publications. This is a joint recruitment of the CPH and the GIM; the primary appointment will be in the CPH.
The core responsibility of the faculty member will be to direct expansion of the research program within GIM, working collaboratively with GIM investigators and clinicians, other investigators in the CPH, and other faculty in the college of medicine. In fulfilling this responsibility, the candidate will be able to draw on the considerable faculty resources of the CPH, with its specializations in health services management and policy, epidemiology, biostatistics and health behavior and health promotion. The candidate will also benefit from GIM’s active local and national collaborative clinical research partnerships (e.g. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Innovation Programs and the Pragmatic Clinical Trials Network partnership with the OSU Center for Clinical and Translational Science). For additional details about the CPH and the GIM, please visit their respective websites at http://cph.osu.edu/ and https://internalmedicine.osu.edu/general/.
Ongoing GIM research focuses on a wide variety of topics pertaining to patients with complex chronic disease with an emphasis on CER and patient oriented research (POR). The research mission of the GIM is to harness the resources of its clinical laboratory to engage in collaborative, interdisciplinary CER and POR that furthers understanding of evidence-based interventions for patients with complex chronic disease. This applied research will aid GIM in driving care innovation within a multi-faceted healthcare delivery system, not only for interventions contained within the outpatient system but also those that transcend care transitions (e.g. hospital to outpatient, pediatric to adult).
The faculty member will be able to collaborate with a wide network of outstanding clinicians and investigators throughout OSU. S/he will also have access to established university resources including the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS), the Information Warehouse (IW) which houses de-identified clinical data, and the Clinical Trials Management Office (CTMO). The OSU Wexner Medical Center has been ranked as one of "America’s Best Hospitals" by U.S. News and World Report for 21 consecutive years. It is one of the largest health care programs in the region, and is the only academic medical center in central Ohio. The CPH is ranked 14th among public universities; its Master of Health Administration (MHA) program is ranked 10th among all MHA programs.
A doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in health economics, health services research or a related field, or a medical degree with a MPH, is required. Rank and salary will be determined by the candidate’s experience and past academic record. Applications will be considered as they arrive, and the date of appointment is open to negotiation.
Applicants are asked to prepare a single PDF file that contains a cover letter, including a statement of research background and interests, a current curriculum vitae, and copies of two (2) recent publications.
