Assistant/Associate Professor– Center for Bioethics and Health Policy
The Institute of Public and Preventive Health (IPPH) and Center for Bioethics and Health Policy (CBHP) at Augusta University are actively recruiting a faculty member at Assistant or Associate Professor rank. The position is a full-time, tenure track starting on or before August 2022.
The CBHP was established within the IPPH in 2016 with a goal to support and enhance clinical ethics consultation within the Augusta University Health enterprise; integrate educational programs in bioethics and health policy across Augusta University colleges and schools; inform local, regional and national health policy decision-making; and comprehensively conduct interdisciplinary research aimed at improving regional health and health care delivery. The successful candidate will have the skills to develop and teach courses across the field of Bioethics (e.g. clinical ethics and public health ethics). The Center’s current Strategic Research Plan (2021 – 2026) prioritizes three themes: Ethics and the Health Professions; Public Health: Ethics and Policy; and Community Engagement, Social Justice and Advocacy. Special consideration will be given to candidates with research interests within one or more of these broad areas.
The IPPH at Augusta University is an interdisciplinary and a dynamic research institute at a rapidly growing public university. The institutional mission of the IPPH is to improve health, reduce health disparities, and prevent injury and illness through research, service, leadership, and training. The IPPH has a 5-year goal to triple the number of faculty supporting that mission and is aggressively seeking outstanding faculty who would like to assist in shaping the future of the IPPH as we strive to create one of the country’s top public health research institutes.
In addition to an appointment within IPPH/CBHP, this position will also have an appointment, commensurate with experience, within an academic department in one of Augusta University’s nine colleges and schools.
