Assistant Professor Opening: Health Informatics
The Department of Business Informatics (formerly the Information Systems
Department in the College of Business) at Northern Kentucky University (
http://informatics.nku.edu) invites applications for a full-time
tenure-track assistant professor faculty position in our growing area of
health informatics. This position begins August, 2015.
The scope of health informatics is based on a broad perspective of the
application of information systems in the health care industry. Programs
include a Master of Health Informatics (MHI), a postgraduate certificate,
and an undergraduate minor. These academic programs are housed within the
Department of Business Informatics which also offers an AACSB accredited
Bachelor of Science degree in Business Informatics and an AACSB accredited
Master of Science degree in Business Informatics (MBI). The department also
collaborates with the College of Health Professions, developing and
integrating Informatics related curriculum into the MSN-Nursing and Health
Science degree programs.
The Department of Business Informatics is part of the College of
Informatics which embraces the concept of information in all its aspects:
information management, business informatics, media informatics, and
information infrastructure, processing, presentation, dissemination, design
and analysis. The College also is home to the departments of Computer
Science and Communication as well as the Center for Applied Informatics. We
have experienced continual growth since the College was created in 2005,
and now enroll over 2,100 students. We moved into our state-of-the-art $52M
new building, Griffin Hall, in 2011. NKU is now finalizing plans to build a
new $95 million interdisciplinary Health Innovation Center.
NKU (http://www.nku.edu), is located seven miles from downtown Cincinnati
in an area offering outstanding quality of life. NKU is a nationally
recognized metropolitan university committed to active engagement with the
Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati region of nearly two million people.
NKU is committed to recruiting and retaining faculty members who have both
the interest and ability to work across the full breadth of the
University’s mission in teaching, research, and public engagement.
While the specific area of research and teaching for this position is
flexible, preference will be given to applicants with teaching and research
interests in integrating information systems, health care performance, data
analytics, and consumer health. In addition to teaching and research, the
successful applicant will also participate in service, in particular
helping to guide the program’s future development. An ability to work with
individuals in related academic fields and the local healthcare industry,
in order to make our programs more responsive to regional and national
needs, is highly desired.
Applications can be submitted at http://jobs.nku.edu/postings/2300 and
include all supporting materials: the letter of application, curriculum
vitae and references, statement of teaching interests, statement of
research interests, and statement of interest in the position. The
applicant should explain how their teaching and research vision fits with
NKU’s vision of health informatics, the main area of health informatics
research to be targeted by the applicant, and the main areas of teaching
interest. The search committee will ask for more detailed information
(letters of recommendations, transcripts, etc.) from those applicants who
pass the first screening.
