Additional Information:

The RAISE Initiative (Race, Inclusion, and Social Equity) of the Ohio State University (OSU) seeks to improve health equity through research contributing to an understanding and reduction of the impact of the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) on vulnerable and disenfranchised communities. We are committed to recruiting, retaining, developing, and advancing a cadre of SDOH-focused faculty, providing robust mentoring, and embedding them in interdisciplinary teams committed to narrowing social disparities impacting health equity. Specific research to address the SDOH is imperative as these nonmedical vital signs impact health to a greater degree than medical interventions. Challenges to be addressed include our ability to identify SDOH systematically and proactively or create interventions that meet the needs and expectations of the community.

We are seeking applications for three full-time tenure-track faculty at all ranks who are excited and committed to this call for action. Two of these positions could be hired as Fellows to Faculty at OSU, an innovative program in which successful candidates begin their career with two years of postdoctoral training followed by a position as a tenure track assistant professor. Expertise can include but is not limited to artificial intelligence (AI), data science and analytics, biomedical informatics, health professions, nursing, public health, and social and behavioral sciences. Faculty appointments will be in the College of Arts & Sciences (Psychology), Engineering (Computer Science and Engineering), Medicine (Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, Department of Biomedical Informatics), Nursing, and Public Health (Division of Health Behavior and Health Promotion). As a national leader in evidence-based interventions and interprofessional team translational science, OSU has a responsibility to advance research and implementation science on the SDOH that are particularly harmful to historically marginalized and minoritized groups.
