Tulane Public Health Undergraduate Program Search for two Clinical Faculty Positions
Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine (SPHTM) is seeking applicants for two clinical faculty positions at the assistant and/or associate professor level for the BSPH undergraduate public health program. Undergraduate public health is one of the most rapidly growing areas of undergraduate study in the US and at Tulane. The BSPH program offers undergraduate public health courses within the liberal arts and science curriculum and incorporates service learning as an integral part of the undergraduate education.
The successful candidates must have: 1) an earned doctorate in a public health or related discipline; 2) teaching experience in undergraduate, graduate or continuing education in public health or closely related fields; 3) expertise in one or more of the five core areas of public health, namely, biostatistics, community health/behavioral science (including health education, nutrition, maternal and child health), environmental health, epidemiology or health systems management. Experience in undergraduate teaching, service learning, innovative teaching methods, community-based research/approaches, and service in public health settings is highly desirable. Cross-cutting knowledge of global health, health disparities, influence of culture on health, health promotion/wellness policies and interventions and expertise in more than one area of public health is highly desirable.
The successful candidates will be responsible for teaching introductory and undergraduate core public health courses, coordinating and conducting service learning courses, advising students, fostering communication between the undergraduate program and SPHTM, and facilitating the program to enhance the undergraduate public health experience. This will be a 12 month appointment with teaching responsibilities each semester including summer. Salary will be commensurate with academic rank and experience.
Interested candidates for these positions should send a letter outlining education, expertise in public health, and teaching and service experience and other information demonstrating qualifications and experience for these positions; a full curriculum vita; and three professional references. The search committee will begin screening applications on July 1, 2012 and continue until the positions are filled. The proposed starting date is early fall, 2012.
