We are interested in a broadly trained public health scholar with a transdisciplinary approach to the practice of public health.

The program curriculum is firmly rooted in the liberal arts and allow students to choose from more than 70 courses across 20 different academic departments/programs. In addition, students are required to undertake an experiential learning component (ELC) where they are pushed to experience public health outside of the classroom. Our curriculum values diversity and inclusion, community engagement, and social justice while guiding students to understand the historical and social roots of health inequities.
The successful candidate will teach Introduction to Public Health, Epidemiology, Public Health Research Methods, and upper-level courses in their area of expertise. The teaching load is three courses per semester. Applicants should demonstrate excellence in teaching, active scholarship, and a commitment to undergraduate education.

A PhD in public health, epidemiology, community health, or a related field, or DrPH is required at the time of appointment.
Terminal degree from a CEPH accredited school of public health is preferred.
