The Department of Learning Health Sciences at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is seeking a full-time, tenure-track faculty member at the Assistant or Associate Professor level with rank and salary commensurate with education and experience. We seek an innovative scholar with special interest and expertise in implementation science. The scholar’s background may be based in a wide range of dissemination, implementation, knowledge translation, and/or quality improvement sciences such as (but not restricted to): public health, health services research, psychology, sociology, economics, anthropology, education, social sciences, systems science, organizational behavior, operations research, nursing, social work, or clinical sciences. We seek candidates in the field of implementation science, knowledge translation, or improvement science (quality improvement) who will focus on understanding, designing, and evaluating multilevel strategies to improve performance and/or improve the uptake of effective innovations in real-world health care settings with an eye towards impacting health care quality, safety, cost, outcomes, equity, and patient and provider experience. Successful candidates will apply dissemination and implementation frameworks combined with insights from multilevel stakeholders at the consumer, frontline provider, clinical manager, health system, community, and policy levels. In addition, successful candidates will conduct novel studies that develop, refine, and test different strategies to improve health care performance and/or improve the uptake and sustainment of effective innovations designed to impact health and health care across different settings (e.g., hospital networks, medical clinics, schools, community-based organizations)
