The Department of Environmental Health Sciences of Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health seeks applicants for a cluster hire of 4-5 tenure track faculty positions at the level of Assistant and Associate Professor or higher. We seek scholars with a doctorate degree in environmental health or related field who are particularly interested in environmental justice, environmental health inequalities, children and maternal environmental health, and related areas. Other areas relevant for environmental health sciences will also be considered. Columbia University is committed to increasing diversity and inclusion of underrepresented groups; the applicant should describe how their current work demonstrates commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, or how they will contribute to it in the future.
The successful candidate(s) will develop an independent research program within the Department of Environmental Health Sciences. Among other opportunities for collaboration, the Department is home to the Columbia Center for Children’s Environmental Health. The Center offers unique opportunities through existing longitudinal cohorts of children and their mothers and capacity for new recruitment. The Department also houses the NIEHS-Columbia P30 Center for Environmental Health in Northern Manhattan that supports an active community engagement program in Northern Manhattan (Harlem, Washington Heights, and Inwood) and the South Bronx. These Centers offer opportunities for community-based participatory research in marginalized communities that are disproportionally affected by adverse environmental exposures. The incumbent will work and collaborate with investigators across Columbia University to develop a comprehensive research program in the areas referenced above, and they will play a substantial role in our MS, MPH, and PhD educational programs as an instructor and mentor.
