Tenure-Track Faculty Positions – Division of Health Policy and Economics

The Division of Health Policy and Economics within the Department of Population Health Sciences at Weill Cornell Medicine seeks full-time tenure-track faculty at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor.

Faculty in the Division of Health Policy and Economics study the effects of public and private health policies and organizational processes on healthcare access, quality, and cost; population health outcomes; and health equity. Faculty focus on a range of topics including, but not limited to, alternative payment models; consolidation of provider organizations; private equity investment in healthcare; telehealth; Medicaid policy; long-term and post-acute care; and social determinants of health and equity. Candidates with research interests in these and other areas of health policy and economics are encouraged to apply. We welcome applicants with varied methodological expertise, including econometrics, health policy statistics, mixed-methods and qualitative research, and others.

Candidates should have a PhD or MD with additional graduate training (e.g., M.P.H, MS, or fellowship). The successful applicant will be expected to conduct independent and collaborative research, obtain and sustain extramural funding, maintain a strong publication record, and contribute to the Division’s educational programs. Candidates at the associate professor level or higher should have a strong record of independent funding and enthusiasm for mentoring junior faculty.

The Department of Population Health Sciences is highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary, with substantial research strengths across a variety of areas, including health policy and economics; health data science and data analytics; health informatics; comparative effectiveness and outcomes research; healthcare delivery science; epidemiology; and biostatistics. Our faculty interact frequently with colleagues across Weill Cornell Medicine, the Cornell University Ithaca campus (including Cornell’s newly launched Brooks School of Public Policy), Cornell Tech, and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (ranked 7th in the country by U.S. News & World Report) and its multi-hospital system. Population Health Sciences faculty also participate in the Cornell Center for Health Equity, which was established in 2018 to bring together researchers across the University to collaborate on advancing health equity.

The Department has significant data resources, including the INSIGHT Clinical Research Network (the largest urban clinical data network in the country) and extensive claims data from Medicare, Medicaid, and major private insurers. We host a state-of-the-art computing environment, the Data Core, which serves as a secure platform for data analysis and includes state and national data available for reuse. The Department offers MS degrees in healthcare policy and research, biostatistics and data science, and health informatics, as well as an executive MBA/MS program offered jointly with the Cornell Johnson Graduate School of Management. The Department is in the process of launching a PhD program.
