The Brown University School of Public Health invites applications for an Assistant (tenure-track) or Associate Professor (tenure-track or tenured) position in the Department of Epidemiology. The start date is flexible but anticipated to be July 2024.
We are seeking applications from candidates who are poised to collaborate across two or more areas of current strength: substance use and mental health epidemiology; infectious diseases and pandemic preparedness; social epidemiology and health equity; mindfulness; climate change and environmental health; vaccine epidemiology and pharmacoepidemiology; and aging and chronic conditions. We also strongly encourage applications from individuals with methodologic expertise in causal inference, health data science, or approaches that utilize 'big data.' The successful candidate will be expected to sustain and grow an existing externally funded research program, as well as to teach and mentor students in their area of study. Applicants at the associate professor level will also be expected to demonstrate a track record of external leadership within epidemiology or the larger public health field.
The Department of Epidemiology is home to a robust doctoral program and oversees the epidemiology concentration for the growing MPH program. The Brown School of Public Health and the broader University offer opportunities for substantial collaboration with world class researchers in the constituent disciplines of epidemiology as well as in a broad range of other domain areas in health care and policy research, medicine, brain sciences, computational biology, computer science, economics, and behavioral sciences. The School of Public Health is home to 14 thriving research centers and ranks among the top 5 schools of public health for NIH funding.
Applicants must possess a doctoral degree (PhD or equivalent) in epidemiology or a related field. Alternatively, candidates must possess a relevant clinical doctoral degree (e.g., MD, PharmD). Candidates should have evidence of strong methodologic training. Candidates must be able to demonstrate: research excellence and productivity, including ability to maintain a successful program of extramural funding; evidence of the ability to teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students; and evidence of a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. This position comes with 6 months of guaranteed salary support per year. The Department of Epidemiology is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.
Applicants should submit their Curriculum Vitae, cover letter, teaching statement, research impact statement, and diversity statement through Interfolio. Please indicate in your letter of application the search number (PH 318) and whether you are applying for Assistant or Associate Professor.
