We encourage applications from persons with experience conducting community-based research serving particularly vulnerable, underserved, and urban populations.

Candidates should have substantive scholarly expertise in one or more defined areas and be able to develop collaborative research efforts in the metropolitan Detroit area. We seek a colleague with an active research program, track record of published scholarship, and an ability to draw on this research to inform their teaching and service.

We also value candidates committed to evidence-based intervention research employing traditional and non-traditional quantitative and qualitative methods (e.g., ethnography, Photovoice, and mixed methods).

Candidates will be expected to teach required courses in the undergraduate public health curriculum. The preferred candidate will have teaching strengths that support courses such as Environmental Health, Methodological Approaches in Public Health, and Social and Behavioral Aspects of Public Health. Candidates will also be encouraged to develop new elective courses
that align with their substantive area of expertise within environmental health and justice.

Candidates are also expected to perform meaningful service on department, college, and university committees; participate in departmental activities; serve their profession/discipline and/and community partners (if appropriate); and complete other related duties as assigned.

Qualifications:

Candidates should possess a Ph.D., DrPH, or equivalent doctoral degree with expertise in environmental health, environmental sciences, environmental justice, or closely related social/behavioral science. Persons who will have their doctoral degree conferred by August 15, 2021 are eligible to apply. Candidates who additionally possess an MPH degree in any public health discipline are highly valued. The College is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute to the academic community’s diversity and excellence at Wayne State University.

Candidates should apply via jobs.wayne.edu and include a cover letter that addresses: (1) research accomplishments and interests; (2) teaching philosophy and experiences, particularly regarding undergraduate instruction; (3) potential for having a metropolitan impact; and (4) commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in these efforts. Applicants should also provide a curriculum vitae (CV) with the names, titles, and contact information for three professional references. Priority will be given to candidates who apply by December 31, 2020. A review of applications will begin immediately after that; the search committee may consider late applications until the position is filled.

Department and University Setting:

The successful candidate will join a vibrant and engaged academic unit collectively dedicated to addressing and eliminating health disparities. Our faculty have achieved national and international reputations for excellence in their respective fields of research including mental health and suicide prevention, gender and reproductive health, patient-centered outcomes
assessment, immigrant health, and chronic disease prevention.
