Department of Health Management & Systems Sciences (HMSS)

The University of Louisville (UofL) School of Public Health & Information Sciences (SPHIS) seeks candidates for two (2) full-time faculty positions with an appointment in the Department of Health Management and Systems Sciences (HMSS). One position is full-time tenure-eligible junior faculty at the assistant professor-level and the other position is tenure-eligible senior assistant or associate. Successful faculty candidates will build HMSS research capacity in health services, health management and policy, and/or management science while bolstering the department’s potential for teaching and increased enrollments in existing academic programs.

The hired candidate(s) will play an active role in the research activities of the Commonwealth Institute of Kentucky (CIK) and the Health Equity Innovation Hub. CIK was established in 2015 to serve as a transdisciplinary collaborative for population health improvement, policy, and analytics. The primary operations of CIK include data warehousing and analytics, community-based research, and health policy research and education. The Health Equity Innovation Hub is a joint collaboration between UofL, the Humana Foundation, and Humana Inc. established in 2022 aimed at closing health equity gaps facing vulnerable populations. The Hub will focus on groundbreaking research, talent development, entrepreneurship, and innovation, with a deliberate focus on health equity, social determinants of health, and digital health and analytics.

HMSS seeks applicants in the following positions and areas of expertise

The candidates hired will maintain a faculty appointment in HMSS, providing teaching and service for the department’s graduate-level programs (CAHME-accredited MS in Health Administration (MSHA), MS in Health Data Analytics, Master of Public Health-Health Policy, and Ph.D. in Health Management & Policy). Educational activities are expected to flow from the growing SPHIS infrastructure with the candidate contributing to instructional activities in areas such as an expansion of health administration and health services research instruction, seminars on health-targeted topics, and community presentations within Louisville, Kentucky’s large and vibrant healthcare community.

The tenure-track assistant professor applicant should be able to teach various courses related to health management and health policy. This is an open recruitment (no specific area required), but the general areas of interest encompass health services research, health policy, health economic analysis, and health administration course content including finance-accounting, human resource management, health insurance and managed care, and/or operations management. The ideal candidate should be able to show substantial potential for a strong research record in health services research, health management, health policy, operations management, information management, health outcomes research, or a related area.

The tenure-eligible senior assistant professor or associate professor applicant should be able to teach various courses related to health policy, health economics, or quantitative health services research. The ideal candidate should be able to show evidence of a research record in health policy or health services research.

SPHIS maintains very strong working partnerships with the Louisville Metropolitan government and Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Salary will be competitive and commensurate with rank and experience. A cover letter detailing the candidate’s research interests, teaching, and other relevant experience, curriculum vitae, and a list of three reference contacts are required to be submitted as part of the on-line application at
