Posted: 2/16/2018 (Employment)

The multidisciplinary academic program in Global Health at Yale seeks two Postdoctoral Fellows for the 2018-2019 Academic Year, with an option of renewal for the following academic year. Each Fellow will teach two undergraduate courses (one per semester) drawing on their respective areas of expertise in Global Health. They will also pursue research with a mentor of their choosing and participate in the interdisciplinary community provided by the Global Health Justice Partnership, directed by Professors Amy Kapczynski, Alice M. Miller, and Gregg Gonsalves. Participating Yale faculty in the program include members of Sociology, Anthropology, Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies, Biomedical Engineering, Medicine, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Public Health, History of Science and Medicine, Ethnicity Race & Migration. Successful candidates will also be granted a budget to host events that contribute to interdisciplinary conversations about Global Health.

Program Description

This program, administered by the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and led by the Global Health Justice Partnership, develops the ability of Yale undergraduates to think critically and analytically about key challenges in global health today.  Students balance their appreciation for biomedical and technical issues related to diseases, their treatment and prevention, with their growing understanding of the historical, social, economic and political concerns that are implicated in how health is determined and experienced in the 21st century.

Qualifications

Requirements: PhD awarded between 2015 and June 15, 2018 in any field, or JD; demonstrated record of interdisciplinary engagement across biomedical and social sciences and humanities.  Field or teaching experience in global health preferred.
