The Department of Global Health of the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health invite applications for a full-time Assistant or Associate Professor, tenure or tenure-track, with expertise related to Health Systems in Global Health (HSiGH).

The Milken Institute School of Public Health has a diverse and growing faculty, with an expanding research portfolio. As the only school of public health in the nation’s capital, faculty and students have an opportunity to work closely with government agencies in the executive, legislative, and judicial branches, as well as international organizations and diplomatic representations headquartered in DC. There are numerous foundations and non-governmental and international/ global consulting organizations that consider health and development within their portfolios, and, increasingly, the School is considered a resource for health systems analysis and development globally. The School of Public Health has a growing connection with the local population catchment area characterized by a widely diverse and multiethnic population, as well as in many other countries in Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Europe.

George Washington University (GWU) seeks to be a leader in a systems science approach to the challenges of health systems policy and institutional strengthening in low-middle income countries. In health systems, we include clinical/medical care as well as public health functions. Our program aims to grow its expertise in HSiGH with a broad focus on health systems. We seek to bring perspectives that expand beyond current national practices to address the urgent needs represented by the global call for universal health coverage (UHC) and the need to strengthen the provision of public health functions under different conditions of development. The Department seeks to develop innovative initiatives, built on team science, which are able to translate the knowledge of health systems into authoritative policies.

We invite applications from a wide variety of backgrounds. Relevant disciplines could include, for example, health systems, epidemiology, global health, medicine and nursing, economics, public policy, or other relevant social sciences. This position will require understanding how health systems are related to their financing, stewardship and regulation, connection with health system IT, impact on the economy, and rapidly evolving forms of governance as well as a strong methodologic basis in the public health sciences or social or management sciences.

Specific Duties and Responsibilities:

Primary responsibilities for the position include an active role in health systems research internationally, teaching, and service. The successful candidate will bring, or progressively develop, an externally funded research portfolio, and devote at least 50% effort to this research. This appointment includes participation in the MPH programs of Global Health Policy (GHP) and Design Monitoring and Evaluation (DME).

Minimum Qualifications:

Applicants must have a terminal degree in a relevant discipline and demonstrated experience in at least one of the areas of focus for the GHP program (for example, health systems, epidemiology, global health, medicine and nursing, economics, public policy, or other relevant social sciences). Strong verbal and written communication skills in English are required. Applicants should have a publication record commensurate with rank, experience teaching and mentoring students, as well as have a demonstrated ability to obtain extramural research funding. Relevant demonstrated research interests and on-the-ground experience should include practice and research on national and international health systems in low-middle income countries. A sound intercultural management experience in professional and work settings is essential. Familiarity working in low-resource settings is required, as is familiarity with institutions (international, governmental, and non-governmental) relevant to global health and development.
