Recruiting exceptional leaders for mission-driven organizations.




Vice Dean, College of Health Solutions Phoenix, AZ

Please note that as of late February 2020, the search is in an advanced stage. 

Arizona State University seeks an innovative and experienced leader to serve as the inaugural Vice Dean of the College of Health Solutions.

Founded in 2012, the College of Health Solutions (CHS) is dedicated to translating scientific advances into practice to improve health outcomes through education, research, and service. CHS equips 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. CHS research programs encompass basic/discovery science, clinical trials, intervention science and measurement of health outcomes. In addition, CHS faculty use interdisciplinary approaches to address the complex systems that underpin health problems. CHS is highly collaborative, transparent, and team-oriented, with an innovative organizational structure that includes translational teams, affinity networks, and academic programs to improve the health of people and communities.

In its short history, CHS has experienced tremendous growth in faculty, students, research, and clinical partnership. In 2017, CHS welcomed Dean Deborah Helitzer, who has since undertaken an operational redesign process driven by community stakeholders, faculty, and staff, resulting in an innovative structure that maximizes faculty and staff input and transparency. Today, there is deliberate effort underway to grow, align, and integrate the academic, administrative, clinical, faculty success, and cross-institutional programs within CHS. The Vice Dean will build on these efforts and will provide leadership and guidance to critical processes and functions pertaining to academic and faculty matters within CHS, in addition to collaborating to develop and operationalize strategic goals; and enhancing the infrastructure necessary to support the recent reorganization.

The Vice Dean will be a dynamic academic leader with an enduring commitment to achieving excellence through diversity of faculty, students, staff, and ideas. Successful candidates must show strong evidence of sustained visionary leadership and change management through administration and demonstrate a communicative, service leadership, and team-oriented style. Candidates must have a terminal degree in a population health-related discipline as well as a record of research and teaching appropriate for appointment as full professor with tenure in CHS.

Screening of complete applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Electronic submission of materials is required.
