The Institute for Health, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, and the substantial resources of Rutgers University offer a rich collaborative environment for conducting research in health disparity and health equity. IFH is the home to a variety of program focused on health disparities and health equity, including NIA funded P30 RCMAR Center. RBHS is home to Rutgers Health Group, New Jersey's largest multi-specialty medical group that includes the state's only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center, a large behavioral health delivery system, and Robert Wood Johnson Partners, a commercial and Medicare ACO. RBHS partners with RWJBarnabas Health, the state's largest healthcare delivery system for clinical-academic research partnerships. Research among these units expands considerably the opportunities for this position. The Institute for Health has faculty and other researchers with considerable expertise in the health disparity and health equity research, social and clinical sciences, health research and policy, pharmacoepidemiology, public health, and related fields. The faculty have exceptional capacity and decades long history of addressing the most pressing health and healthcare challenges. The Institute and its Survey Data Core is home to considerable expertise in the analysis of large, integrated health-related clinical and administrative datasets, national surveys, Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurance data with the application of social science theory and advanced statistical techniques. For submission, please follow Rutgers HR system for online submission.

The Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research invites applications for multiple faculty positions focused on broader health care delivery research with specific focus on Patient Safety and/or Care Transitions. Rutgers' recent alliance with RWJ Barnabas Health Systems create a unique opportunity to conduct health services research in a practical setting to further clinical-academic research partnerships. With locations across the state, Rutgers Health and partners will have approximately 5 million lives under a single Electronic Medical Record system. In the rapidly changing health care landscape and IFH focus on population health sciences, we are seeking committed investigators at assistant/associate/full professor level (tenured or tenure tracked) to contribute rigorous science and knowledge development. Potential candidates should have a strong interest in working collaboratively with a multidisciplinary group of social scientists, behavioral scientist, clinicians and policy scholars to build a population health research portfolio and a track record or high potential for independent federal funding. Faculty are anticipated to engage in a variety of research and scholarly activities to further a program of research. Faculty may collaborate with Rutgers health systems, insurance companies, state agencies, clinicians, research networks, as well as patients, families, and primary care providers to support engagement in patient safety, and care transitions. Faculty may assess the quality and appropriateness of patient safety measures and effectiveness of care transition plans. Work collaboratively with other researchers and team members to advance the state of sciences in patient safety and care transitions as well as perform other duties as assigned. In addition, work with hospital treatment teams and discharge planners for optimal after care plans, assist with linkage to out-patient services and community supports, investigate the efficiencies and effectiveness of care coordination services in the community for three months following a hospital discharge, and works with the community treatment providers, families and other supports to promote successful community engagement.
Minimum Education and Experience:
Candidates for Assistant Professor should have strong research potential (as demonstrated by relevant publications and funding potential). Candidates for Associate Professor should have a strong track record of research publication, and funding, and those for Full Professor position should have a track record of research, publication, and funding that distinguishes them, nationally or internationally, as leaders in Patient Safety and Care Transitions.
