Job Summary

The University of Michigan College of Pharmacy (U-M CoP), Department of Clinical Pharmacy (DCP) seeks qualified candidates for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant or associate professor to broaden existing scholarship within the college and the U-M community in the area of Anti-racist Health Informatics and/or Data Science. Areas of research and teaching may include, but are not limited to:

  • Data-driven, anti-racist, health policy analysis regarding racial disparities in health insurance, healthcare access, quality, and safety;
  • Healthcare provider education and point-of-care informatics interventions to reduce providers’ implicit racial biases and enhance their structural competence; and
  • Community-driven, technology-enabled models of healthcare delivery that address racism as a social determinant of health and empower communities, impacted and marginalized by racialized systems, in service/intervention design.

We especially welcome scholars who have demonstrated expertise in anti-racist research methods, interdisciplinary scholarship experience, and a commitment to translating research into practice.

This position is part of a new faculty cluster focused on “Racial Justice in Healthcare: Informatics and Data-Driven Approaches.” This cluster hire of five faculty (one within each of five units) will focus on using informatics and data science methods to detect, understand, and reduce structural racism within healthcare, and racial healthcare disparities. Faculty will be hired in the following units: (1) College of Pharmacy, Department of Clinical Pharmacy; (2) the School of Information; (3) University of Michigan Medical School, Department of Learning Health Sciences; (4) School of Nursing, Department of Health Behavior and Biological Sciences; and (5) School of Public Health, Department of Health Management and Policy. Over the next three years, the university will hire at least 20 faculty members with scholarly expertise in racial inequality and structural racism.

The faculty member appointed in the DCP will join a transdisciplinary group of health services and pharmacy informatics researchers (PING) (https://pharmacy.umich.edu/ping/). The PING team is composed of pharmacist-scientists who have expertise across the informatics continuum, including data-driven analytics, software and technology development, data infrastructure, pharmacy practice, and implementation science.

The successful candidate will be expected to build an independent, externally-funded research program and should demonstrate potential for or experience with leadership in research and professional activities, including publication, research funding, participation in collaborative and interdisciplinary initiatives, and service to the College, University, and broader academic community. They must be able to articulate how they will support the College’s mission “to educate and inspire a diverse group of future pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists to be leaders, advance patient care, and improve health for all.”
