University of Iowa Informatics Cluster Hire Initiative

Recruiting Nurse Faculty in Informatics

The University of Iowa (UI) College of Nursing is seeking applications for a tenure-track faculty position for junior or senior faculty in nursing with a focus in informatics to contribute and/or lead research teams across campus by bringing an understanding of informatics and data science along with expertise in clinical areas such as health care systems, symptom management of chronic conditions, and healthcare of populations such as children, vulnerable women, and older adults.  Knowledge of the role and application of informatics and data science is needed not only by researchers, but also by our students and practicing nurses. The college is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in achieving our education, research, service and practice missions.  The College of Nursing’s commitment to diversity is a shared value as demonstrated through our Pillars of Diversity. 

The Iowa Informatics Initiative is a bold, campus-wide initiative designed to foster new collaborations to open new research and scholarship opportunities across campus from health care to digital arts and humanities, and to educate and train the next generation workforce with the skills to transform information into knowledge and actions. Participation in the Informatics Cluster facilitates collaborations with experts in various fields relevant for successful research in this expanding field. The successful candidate for this position will contribute to academic programming on informatics content in the undergraduate and graduate programs in the College, participate in the interdisciplinary activities of the Informatics Cluster Hire, collaborate with the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Informatics (IGPI) and provide the liaison between the College of Nursing faculty with research activities related to informatics and data science and the informatics cluster. Participation in the Iowa Informatics Initiative will be an important component in performance evaluations.

As a leader in nursing education, research, and practice innovations, The UI College of Nursing has received national recognition by U.S. News & World Report ranking nine of its graduate programs among the best in the nation (in comparison to all public and private schools).  Areas of research excellence in the College of Nursing include gerontology, health systems improvement and pain, palliative care and symptom management.  Emerging areas of emphasis include management of chronic conditions and health promotion in at-risk populations.  Cross cutting approaches include applied genomics/omics/biomarkers, health information technology and community engagement.

Application materials include a letter describing relevant experiences and interest in the position; current curriculum vitae; and contact information of three references (to be contacted only with permission).
