Two Tenure-Track Faculty Positions
The University of South Carolina Arnold School of Public Health invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions (one Assistant/Associate level and one Open Rank) in the Department of Health Services Policy and Management (HSPM). These 9-month faculty positions are fully supported by state funds and include a substantial start-up package. We seek individuals who share our vision of a world in which health care is accessible, affordable, effective, and equitable for all, who are passionate about conducting rigorous research that informs policy and practice, and who take seriously the responsibility of training the next generation of health care administrators, public health practitioners, policy analysts, and health services researchers. Successful candidates will be expected to develop or sustain an independent extramurally-funded research program; teach undergraduate and/or graduate courses in the department; advise and mentor students and postdoctoral fellows; and provide service to the University, profession, and community. For candidates seeking leadership opportunities, we invite you to indicate your interest in directing our doctoral program.
About the Department and the School of Public Health
HSPM is home to 15 full-time faculty who are actively engaged in research to address public health challenges in areas such as rural health, behavioral health, infectious disease, health economics, primary care, maternal and child health, and hospital care. Our faculty lead or co-lead four major centers on campus: the Rural and Minority Health Research Center, the Big Data Health Sciences Center, the South Carolina Center for Effectiveness Research in Orthopedics, and the Patient Engagement Studio. Our location in the state capital near government agencies and an array of non-profit organizations facilitates collaborative community-engaged partnerships focused on public health priorities important to the people of our state and nation. Our faculty teach courses in the undergraduate public health major, and we also offer three fully-accredited graduate degree programs: a Master of Health Administration, a Master of Public Health, and a PhD in Health Services Policy and Management. HSPM is a full Graduate Member of the Association of University Programs in Health Administration.
HSPM is housed within the Arnold School of Public Health at USC—the state’s public flagship university.
