The Master of Public Health Program (MPH) invites applications for a 12-month teaching position in Public Health beginning in the fall of 2020. Our MPH is a rapidly growing program that offers both on-campus and on-line graduate study. We welcome candidates with diverse academic backgrounds, including but not limited to public health, biostatistics, epidemiology, health policy, health management, behavioral science, and social determinants. We are especially interested in candidates with applied public health experience in community, government, and consulting settings. The successful applicant(s) will be expected to teach the equivalent of three courses per term if full-time, less if part-time. Our greatest teaching needs are in methods (epidemiology, biostatistics, survey design, and evaluation), health policy, and management. Two positions are available.
These are non-tenure-track positions with appointment in the Department of Public Health and Community Medicine. The initial appointment term will be for two years with the possibility of renewal contingent on annual performance review results. Faculty will have a primary focus on teaching, but should also expect to make contributions to the scholarship and service missions of the department and school.
The Department of Public Health and Community Medicine has grown substantially in the past decade. In addition to our public health program, the department recently launched a master’s program in health informatics and analytics. The department benefits from excellent graduate students, collaborative faculty, and cross-disciplinary research opportunities. Tufts University supports and encourages a culture of interdisciplinary scholarship, and there are numerous such opportunities within the School of Medicine, Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and our Clinical Translational Research Institute.
All applications should be submitted via Interfolio, at http://apply.interfolio.com/70688. The following materials are required: a cover letter describing how their experience would contribute to the program and would advance Tufts University’s diversity efforts, a CV, a statement of teaching interests and philosophy, and the names of three individuals who can provide letters of recommendation. (Letters of reference will be requested at a second stage). To ensure full consideration, applications must be submitted by January 15, 2020. Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the positions are filled. For questions about the position contact the Associate Director of Curriculum and Program Planning Susan Koch-Weser at Susan.Koch_Weser@tufts.edu.
