Assistant/Associate Professor, Population Health & Health Equity
Posted: 12/12/2017 (Employment)
The Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is seeking candidates for a tenure track position as Assistant/Associate Professor. The focus is on Population Health & Health Equity. We are especially interested in junior candidates who earned their doctoral degree in one of the population health sciences (e.g., social and behavioral sciences, epidemiology, bioinformatics) or a related public health field, or in the social sciences (e.g., sociology, demography), with training in public health.
We seek a rising scholar who can help advance the field of population health sciences. We are interested in scholars who conduct innovative, theoretically sophisticated, methodologically rigorous, interdisciplinary and intersectional research to advance health equity. Possible topics of expertise include but are not limited to: (1) understanding how social and/or organizational policies impact population health. Areas of focus may include the impact of labor markets, education, welfare, and organizational policies (e.g., workplaces, schools) on health and health equity; (2) measuring and monitoring population health and health inequities; (3) population health, and health equity as they relate to migration (within and between countries) or Indigenous populations; (4) translational research (e.g. implementation science) involving social and/or behavioral interventions and evaluations to improve health equity.
Candidates should have expertise in their field and a track record of interdisciplinary scholarship and application of intersectional approaches in both research and pedagogy. The research and teaching should each be directed towards understanding and changing population health and improving health equity. Candidates with a track record of obtaining and leading externally funded research projects will be given priority.
