The Department of Clinical and Administrative Pharmacy is seeking an outstanding candidate to join its Pharmaceutical Health Services, Outcomes, and Policy (PHSOP) program to provide leadership in research, instruction and service.

The initiative follows a translational science paradigm using evidence-based research to support the implementation of more refined approaches to improving the health of individual patients.

Priority will be given to those with a track record of funded research, quality teaching and innovations, and expertise in health disparities and health quity, precision medicine, health outcomes, large secondary data analysis (e.g., Big Data), and/or dissemination and implementation science.

The faculty member will be located in Athens, Georgia, home of the University of Georgia. Athens is ideally situated in the rolling hills of northeast Georgia, yet is less than one hour from metropolitan Atlanta, and within easy access to the scenic Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee mountains.
