The Albert Gnaegi Center seeks a scholar in the field of bioethics or health care ethics with a proven record of peer-reviewed scholarship who is interested in a visiting appointment for an academic semester or full academic year in AY22-23. Typically, candidates who hold faculty appointments will have been awarded a sabbatical or other type of leave from their home academic institution. Applicants should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in a relevant discipline such as anthropology, philosophy, psychology, sociology, theology, public health, law, medicine, or other relevant disciplines. Applicants must also have a scholarly record of normative argumentation on topics related to health care ethics and bioethics with strong evidence of a scholarly research agenda in bioethics. The Center has particular interest in candidates who work in feminist bioethics, disability ethics, race theory, and sexuality bioethics with emphasis on how these areas of research intersect with clinical ethics, theological ethics, and/or research ethics.

The selected scholar will teach one graduate seminar or lead an interdisciplinary reading group open to faculty and graduate students. They will also deliver one of the Center’s annual public lectures. Compensation will be in the form of one-half of the scholar’s base salary at their home institution, up to $60,000. In the event that the scholar is at the postdoctoral level, the compensation will be $60,000 for one year, potentially renewable for a second year, and the teaching expectation will be one course in the first year and two courses if the appointment is renewed for a second year (courses may be at the graduate or undergraduate level). The selected scholar will also receive up to $5,000 for travel and professional development expenses.

The faculty member will lead his/her own research projects as well as contribute to TRANSPERS focused research by leveraging and building existing expertise and developing new areas of growth. The faculty member will be integrated into the Department’s teaching and service activities.

This position can provide full research support for 1-2 years, with substantial protected research time to enable the successful applicant to develop and get funding for a research agenda. Qualified applicants may also serve as the Assistant Director of TRANSPERS, founded in 2008, which is a global leader in developing objective evidence on the translation of precision medicine and other new technologies into clinical care and health policy.

This position offers the opportunity to join one of the world’s leading health care institutions and a School of Pharmacy that has been the #1 school of pharmacy for NIH grant funding for 41 years. This position offers the possibility for a joint affiliate appointment in the UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies (PRL-IHPS). PRL-IHPS, which was established in 1972, is the first interdisciplinary health policy research group to be part of a major health sciences campus. Their unique contribution is the ability to apply a multi-disciplinary perspective in collaboration with others within and outside the Institute and the University. There are also possibilities for appointments with other groups across the campus including the UCSF Precision Medicine initiative, HDF Comprehensive Cancer Center, Department of Epidemiology, Institute for Human Genetics, Global Health Sciences, and Baker Computational Health Sciences Institute.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD or other relevant, terminal degree (e.g., PharmD, MD) with training and expertise in health services research, health economics, health policy, health outcomes or related fields. Education and/or experience in genomic medicine/precision medicine or related topics is strongly preferred but not required.

Expertise and interest in the following areas is particularly desired: coverage and reimbursement policy, economic evaluation and methods, interdisciplinary and mixed methods research, and systematic evidence reviews. We value applicants with evidence of strong oral and written communication skills and the ability to interact with stakeholders and organizations at all levels. Other desirable attributes are demonstrated evidence of leadership abilities, ability to work both independently and in teams, and a desire to become a leader in academia or related organizations.
