The School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland, College Park, is seeking a new tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor to join an interdisciplinary group of health-policy scholars. Attractive interests would include, but would not be limited to, health care regulation (including regulatory politics), state-level implementation of federal initiatives, and normative implications of emerging health-system stresses. Research interests and methodological skills applicable beyond health policy would be advantageous. The successful applicant will be expected to teach in the School’s core graduate curriculum as well.
Candidates for these positions must qualify to join the School’s faculty as active teachers and scholars. They should possess a terminal degree, such as a Ph.D. or its equivalent, in a relevant discipline, including the Life, Physical, and Social Sciences, as well as Engineering and Law. Applications are welcome from candidates with a demonstrated interest, expertise, and, preferably, experience in public policy formulation and implementation. Those who have recently received a Ph.D. (or expect to earn the degree before the start of the 2011-2012 academic year) or who are already established scholars are encouraged to apply. Appointments are anticipated to begin in August 2011. Salary is competitive.
