Position Summary:

At UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School we think differently. And more importantly, we teach differently. Opening our doors as the Department of Commerce in 1919 and awarding our first degrees to 12 students in 1921 was the beginning. Today, we have become a top ranked business school comprised of several professional and academic degree programs that serve over 3000 students. At Kenan-Flagler our greatest assets are our people and our culture. We are rooted in our core values of excellence, leadership, integrity, inclusion, community and teamwork and it goes back to our founding. It’s not just something on paper, we live it, we show it. Our mission is to prepare the next generation of business leaders by providing a world class education to our students. We understand that recruiting diverse, innovative and exceptional talent is vital in achieving this. If you want to be a part of this vision we want to hear from you.

The UNC Center for the Business of Health (CBOH) is an interdisciplinary academic center housed within UNC Kenan-Flagler and affiliated with the Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise. The vision of the CBOH is to bridge the gap between disciplines through enhancing the academic experience, becoming a trusted source for thought leadership and research, and building strong corporate and community partnerships that improve health and well-being in the state of North Carolina and beyond. Acknowledging that the greatest challenges in healthcare will not be solved through any one lens, the CBOH builds innovative resources, courses, programs, and research opportunities for faculty, staff, and students at Carolina. With the wealth of resources and expertise at UNC and in the Triangle region, the CBOH seeks to catalyze these assets to help academic experts, industry leaders, policy makers, and students work better together across the healthcare eco-system.

The Associate Director of CBOH will report to the Center Director and be responsible for independently managing and executing qualitative and quantitative research projects that provide timely and comprehensive analysis of public policies, business practices, and industry trends in healthcare. The Associate Director will be expected to manage complex research projects involving UNC faculty and staff from across Kenan-Flagler and the broader University, provide independent analysis and thought leadership on complex industry/policy topics, work with corporate partners to advance common goals, and support the Center Director by developing content for the CBOH related to events, webinars, and student learning and development activities. This position will be responsible for supervising and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students working on research for the center as well as advising in the development of their research ideas.
