The Ohio State University College of Public Health seeks an innovative leader and scholar to chair the Division of Health Services Management and Policy (HSMP). The chair will build on Ohio State's rich legacy of education, research and advocacy to improve the organization, financing and delivery of health care and, ultimately, the health and well-being of people across our nation and around the world.

Reporting to the dean, the next chair of HSMP will catalyze and lead a robust, high-impact interdisciplinary research program while advancing public health education and practice at one of the nation's flagship public research universities. The chair will lead the division in developing a distinctive, impactful and unifying vision that aligns with the College of Public Health's strategic plan, amplifies health management and health services research, and enhances the health policy and advocacy mission in the division, the college and across the university.

The division chair will foster a culture that promotes an authentic commitment to diversity and inclusive excellence. Working with the dean and fellow chairs, HSMP's next leader will enhance interdisciplinary collaborations across Ohio State and strengthen community partnerships and other external relationships.

The next chair is expected to recruit new faculty and provide strong mentorship across the division; oversee the master's and doctoral programs in HSMP; provide support for the undergraduate public health major; develop and manage the division's resources; and teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The college seeks a chair with demonstrated intellectual leadership in public health, a substantial record of scholarly or health policy achievement and strong visibility in the public health research or policy communities. The successful candidate must have qualifications commensurate with tenure at the rank of professor in the College of Public Health. An earned doctorate is preferred.
