Job description

The scientific domain of the position regards both education and research activities and addresses organizational and management issues relevant for the introduction and effective use of technological innovations in health care. The focus is on organizational analyses of how technology (medical records, patient portals, supporting eHealth and technologies) functions, can be used and be developed to contribute to the improvement of health services delivery.

Together with colleagues from the department and the institute, the candidate conducts and acquires empirical research to evaluate and/or co-design technological innovations from an organizational perspective. This involves participation in national and international research networks. The candidate is expected to teach on subjects regarding organization and management of technology, but also to participate in teaching on other subjects related to the management and organisation of health care delivery. Teaching activities consist of participating in bachelor and master courses and supervising students who work on their bachelor and/or master thesis. In addition, the candidate may contribute to MBA and executive courses.

The Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management (ESHPM) of Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR), The Netherlands, is a leading institute in health policy and management research and education. ESHPM offers a bachelor of science programme, four master of science programmes, a PhD programme and (inter)national executive education.

Within the health policy & management domain, ESHPM brings together various scientific disciplines such as economics, law, social-medical sciences, management, and governance. Research and educational activities are closely intertwined. Our unique empirically embedded and multidisciplinary approach connects research and education within ESHPM.

ESHPM is located in the Bayle Building (J) at campus Woudestein of Erasmus University Rotterdam and has strong ties to Erasmus Medical Center, as well as with other schools of Erasmus University Rotterdam. Currently, ESHPM hosts around 950 students, and 150 employees. The research and teaching interests and activities of ESHPM are increasingly internationally oriented. The number of non-Dutch students and staff are increasing correspondingly.

The position is offered within the section Health Services Management & Organisation (HSMO).


The department of Health Services Management & Organisation

The scientific focus of the department broadly covers the domain of Health Services Management & Organisation. The teaching is mostly organized around the MSc program in Healthcare Management, which is the largest program in this domain in Europe, and the BSc program in Health Sciences (Gezondheidswetenschappen, Beleid & Management Gezondheidszorg). Courses taught for instance address Organisational Behavior, Quality & Safety, Innovation, Integrated Care, Operations Management, and Financial Management.

The research of the department is aligned with the teaching, and prioritized around three shared strategic themes which are interrelated and of particular societal and scientific relevance in the domain of Health Services Management & Organisation: 1) The co-creating role of patients and professionals in health services, 2) Health Information Technology driven innovation, and 3) Changing organizational models. Our research has an empirical improvement focus. While experienced in evaluative studies, the department therefore increasingly engages in design and action research.

In recent years, the department has published in leading journals such as BMJ Quality & Safety, Health Care Management Review, Health Policy, JMIR, Social Science & Medicine and PLOS ONE, and won various scientific awards. Current research projects take place in The Netherlands, Europe, and across the globe in countries such as China and Colombia.
