The Arizona State University College of Health Solutions (CHS) is seeking a full-time, tenure-eligible Associate or Full Professor with a fiscal (12-month) administrative appointment as Executive Director of Clinical and Community Translational Science.

 

CHS is seeking an exceptional academic leader who is looking for a unique opportunity to accelerate the growth trajectory of an emerging, integrated clinical and community translational science research enterprise. The candidate must have an established record of NIH and other federal funding with experience leading cross- and multi-institution initiatives in translational science.

 

The Executive Director of Clinical and Community Translational Science will represent CHS in University-level discussions and collaborations related to clinical translational science, working closely with staff and faculty in Knowledge Enterprise. S/he will lead CHS collaborations with clinical (e.g, Valleywise, Dignity Health, Phoenix VA Healthcare System, Mayo Clinic, Phoenix Children’s), academic/industry research (e.g., Creighton University School of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Midwestern University, TGEN, NIDDK Phoenix) and community (e.g., Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers (AACHC), Maricopa County Department of Public Health) partners. Responsibilities for this position include leading the clinical and community translational science research enterprise within the College and integrating efforts across the University as well as supporting innovative mentoring programs for trainees and junior faculty that complement the clinical and community efforts. The individual in this position will report to the CHS Associate Dean of Research for their component of their administrative role. Candidates must have a successful and sustained record of extramural funding (including NIH funding), a strong peer-reviewed publication record, and a demonstrated commitment to high-quality teaching and mentoring.

 

College of Health Solutions faculty address one or more of our three core areas: 1) The systems of health and the health needs of populations; 2) Health and human performance of individuals across the lifespan; and 3) Precision health. Across these areas, we work to address complex and difficult health problems that require transformative collaboration, translational research, and innovation. We are particularly interested in making an impact on traditionally underserved and underrepresented populations that experience significant health disparities.

About the College of Health Solutions

The College of Health Solutions is committed to translating scientific health research and discovery into practice to improve health outcomes through education, research and service. We equip students with the knowledge and skills to influence healthier lifestyle choices; develop creative interventions to improve the health of people and populations; analyze and translate large amounts of health data into solutions; and maximize the technology, science, business and application of diagnostics. Our research programs encompass basic science, discovery science, clinical trials, intervention science and measurement of health outcomes. In all cases, our faculty use interdisciplinary approaches to address the complex systems that underpin health problems. We are highly collaborative, transparent and team-oriented. Our innovative organizational structure includes translational teams that move science from labs into communities with evidence-based interventions that make a difference, as well as affinity networks where teams of people work together to improve methodologies and processes. All of our programs, in and out of the classroom, are designed with the goal of improving the health of people and communities.

 

Current training programs include behavioral health, biomedical diagnostics, biomedical informatics, exercise science, health promotion, health sciences, kinesiology, medical studies, nutrition, population health, the science of health care delivery, and speech and hearing science. Our programs are offered at the ASU Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, Polytechnic, West and Lake Havasu campuses, as well as on Mayo Clinic’s campus in north Phoenix.
