Our ideal candidate will have a PhD along with teaching and research experience in one of our disciplines (health administration, data analytics, health economics, epidemiology, biostatistics, and health services research). Emerging or established teaching experience in either Health Planning and Evaluation, Health Data Governance, Health Leadership, and Safety and Quality in Healthcare, or ability to adapt to teach in one or more of these areas is desirable. They will also have the ability and willingness to teach across multiple disciplines such as those listed above.
