An invitation to apply for the position of:
DIRECTOR, HEALTH SERVICES RESEARCH CENTER
The University of Vermont
The University of Vermont (UVM) seeks a highly accomplished tenure-pathway health services researcher to serve as Director of its Health Services Research Center in the Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine (LCOM). The Director will join the College at an exciting time, as Vermont has implemented a statewide all-payer accountable care organization model, leading to remarkable opportunities for evaluation and further innovative health services research.
Reporting to the Senior Associate Dean for Research, the next Director will harness the strengths of LCOM and the unique opportunity to test highly innovative models of healthcare delivery in rural settings across Vermont and northern New England. UVM health services researchers collaborate across multiple colleges and departments at LCOM and the university. The Director will lead and grow UVM Health Services Research, promoting a collaborative interdisciplinary program focused on evaluating the impact of innovative healthcare delivery models, chronic disease prevention and management, organization and financing of health care, integrated health information systems, and health policy or other health service domains. Candidates may have health services research interests that lie in implementation and dissemination science, comparative effectiveness research, health economics, policy analysis, and community-focused interventions to address health disparities and health equity. Integral to the role will be engagement, education, and mentoring of faculty and graduate and post-graduate trainees in health services research, and providing access to design, data management, and analytic consultation resources for collaborating investigators and trainees.
The successful candidate will bring evidence of success leading, coordinating, and facilitating interdisciplinary research teams, hold a doctoral degree (MD, PhD, MD/PhD, or equivalent) and strong experience in health services research, and will be granted a faculty appointment in a department appropriate to expertise and interests. Demonstrated expertise in nationally and internationally recognized health services research is desired, along with a strong record of scholarly, peer-reviewed publications and extramural research funding consistent with appointment at the Associate Professor or Professor level. Candidates with a research focus on cancer care delivery, cancer policy and cancer health equity, will have the opportunity to partner with, and assume a leadership role, in the University of Vermont Cancer Center.
