Associate Professor, Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences
Position Description
The School of Global Public Health (GPH) at New York University
seeks applications for Associate Professor (tenured/tenure track)
within the Department of Public Health Policy and Management. We
seek an energetic, innovative researcher and teacher who works
collaboratively to join our growing faculty. Areas of
interest could include: implementation science; public health
management and financing; health information technology; health
systems redesign and delivery; or global health systems and
governance, particularly as they apply to non-communicable
diseases, climate change, women's health, and service delivery
across nations.
The Department of Public Health Policy and Management (PHPM) is
home to a group of vibrant researchers from different disciplines
including law, management, public administration, medicine and
economics. PHPM has about 170 MPH students and several PhD and DrPH
students, and teaches courses in the school's undergraduate
program. The department houses GPH's growing Global Center for
Implementation Science, headed by Dr. Donna Shelley. Applicants
with an interest in implementation science are especially
encouraged to apply. The candidate will be expected to teach
departmental courses, serve on committees and mentor students, as
well as maintaining an active and productive research agenda.
GPH seeks candidates of exceptional potential and emerging
scholarship who can contribute to the academic and research
enterprise in NYC and throughout New York University's key Global
Network University (GNU) campuses and study-away sites (3 portal
campuses and 12 global academic centers in Africa, South America,
North America, China, Australia, Europe, and the Middle
East). The unique GNU arrangement allows GPH faculty to
establish training and degree programs and research efforts
worldwide; offers faculty and students truly unique opportunities
to engage in their research and study around the world and informs
public health practice both locally and globally through the
exchange of knowledge.
GPH offers academic degrees at the undergraduate, masters and
doctoral levels. The undergraduate program includes 13 joint majors
where students study public health with other relevant subjects.
The CEPH-accredited Master of Public Health degree allows students
to obtain an MPH in one of nine concentrations, and the PhD in
Public Health is offered in one of four areas of study ?
Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Social & Behavioral Sciences, and
Public Health Policy & Management. In addition, a new
school-wide, interdisciplinary DrPH degree launched in September
