The Department of Health Behavior, Society, and Policy (HBSP) at the Rutgers School of Public Health has multiple open-rank, tenure-track positions for faculty members with expertise in health systems and policy, broadly construed. For one of the positions we will hire an economist who can teach health economics and has strong interests in analyses of health policy interventions, health care access and utilization, determinants of population health, and health care decision-making. For the other positions, we are seeking candidates with a wide range of scholarly backgrounds, including health services, health policy, economics, sociology, psychology, anthropology, political science, bioethics, gerontology, etc. We are particularly interested in hiring scholars with expertise in one or more of the following public health problems: 1) suicide and self-harm (including drug/alcohol abuse, tobacco use); 2) violence and abuse (e.g. homicide, childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence); 3) aging and mental health (e.g., dementia, depression); 4) end-of-life care (e.g., palliative care, hospice, polypharmacy, medically-assisted dying). We aspire to hire creative, collaborative faculty members who are motivated to understand and improve public health through scholarship, service, and policy development; have the potential to develop and sustain extramurally-funded research programs; will contribute actively to the teaching mission using modern pedagogical techniques; and will mentor MPH and doctoral students. An attractive recruitment package will include a competitive salary and start-up funds.
Established in 2018, the Department of HBSP was created by merging the Department of Social and Behavioral Health Sciences and the Department of Health Systems and Policy. These departments now represent the two areas of academic concentration within HBSP. By helping social and behavioral science students gain a better understanding of the policy landscape, and by helping students in health systems and policy acquire a deeper understanding of human motivation, we aim to improve the development, implementation, dissemination, and sustainment of interventions to improve public health.
