Position Description

The Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard T.H.

This is a tenure-ladder position, with the academic rank to be determined in accordance with the successful candidate’s experience and productivity.

We are seeking candidates with a potentially broad range of academic interests across health policy and management, although we are particularly interested in recruiting someone with extensive interests in quality of care. Candidates will be expected to undertake empirical research on quality of care and related topics employing statistical and econometric methods.

We expect that this individual will conduct research on quality of care and related delivery system issues. Other highly desired qualifications include advanced methodological training, evidence of ability to manage national and international projects, to collaborate with professionals in other disciplines, and to teach health policy and management courses at the graduate level.

Basic Qualifications

Candidates should hold a doctoral degree (M.D. and/or Ph.D.) and have strong training in research.

Additional Qualifications

For physicians, graduate level training in health policy or another closely related social science discipline is highly desired, but not required.
