The OHSU-PSU School of Public Health (SPH), Health Systems Management and Policy (HSMP) Programs, invites applicants for one full-time 12-month faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning September 1, 2023. The current research strengths of the OHSU-PSU SPH are in the areas of health policy; health inequities arising from institutional, systems, policy, and/or managerial structures; substance use disorders; maternal and reproductive health; sexual/gender minority health; ecological health; and climate change. The SPH and HSMP programs involve faculty with research and applied expertise in health services, health systems and health policy who have primary appointments in other OHSU and PSU academic units, and in research and health services delivery organizations in Portland and elsewhere. The new HSMP faculty member will contribute research expertise in these areas of strength and/or expand expertise through the application of health systems management and policy expertise to topics that seek to address health inequities from a variety of perspectives. The HSMP faculty member will teach at least two graduate level HSMP courses per year, advise and mentor masters and doctoral students, and supervise doctoral research.
The OHSU-PSU SPH is aligned with the American Public Health Association in declaring racism a public health crisis, and our School is committed to becoming an antiracist SPH. We are working to center social justice in our internal and external work as a school and are committed to addressing structural and institutional racism, and to holding ourselves accountable to this work.
Our SPH is a joint school combining the resources of two of Oregon’s leading universities. We will lead in advancing a healthy, equitable society through community engagement, education, research, scholarship, and service. Uniting the cultures and resources of OHSU and of PSU, the SPH educates future public health leaders and advances public health scholarship through creative research, innovative educational practices, and sustained engagement with community partners. We believe in inclusion, innovation, integration, integrity and impact. The SPH offers Bachelor, Master of Public Health, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in several public health disciplines, including an BA/BS in health services administration, an MPH in health management and policy, and a PhD in health systems and policy. We are committed to hiring faculty who have a keen interest in, and desire to advance, the School’s educational, research, service and community engagement missions and values.
