Detailed Job Description

The Global Institute of Public Health (GIPH), an interdisciplinary collaboration of multiple schools at New York University, seeks to recruit experienced public health faculty with expertise in a variety of fields, including epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, social sciences, humanities, policy, health administration and public health practice.

The GIPH includes the participation of 7 schools and colleges at New York University:

• College of Dentistry
• College of Nursing
• Faculty of Arts and Science
• Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service
• School of Medicine
• Silver School of Social Work
• Steinhardt School of Culture,
Education and Human Development

Taking advantage of this interdisciplinary structure, the GIPH engages in research, training, degree programs, and service to accelerate progress toward health outcomes as measured by Healthy People 2020, the Millennium Development Goals (2015 and beyond), the recently-updated Global Burden of Disease profile, WHO and other global entities’ sustainability goals established through national and international collaboration.

The GIPH offers academic degrees at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.  The undergraduate program includes 10 combined majors which join the study of global public health with other highly relevant disciplines and is planned to expand to include further majors.  The GIPH also offers a CEPH-accredited Master of Public Health degree with three concentrations, with new concentrations under consideration.  At the doctoral level, a new PhD in Global Public Health offers four areas of specialization and will admit its first cohort in 2014.  A new set of combined PhD programs is currently under development with the collaborating schools.

The GIPH will undertake a broad program of public health research in collaboration with its participating graduate and professional schools at NYU, partner agencies, community-based organizations, and domestic and global NGOs. The GIPH is dedicated to the application of participatory scientific principals and high standards of ethical public health practice. Critically important is a proactive attitude toward maximally contributing to important, ground-breaking new knowledge, training the next generation of hands-on practitioners, and positively impacting current health-related problems which adversely affect the US and other countries around the globe.

NYU has an extensive global network of teaching and research sites throughout the world.  Known collectively as the Global Network University (GNU), these sites include 3 portal campuses and 13 global academic centers in Africa, South America, China, Australia, Europe and the Middle East.  This unique arrangement permits the GIPH to establish training and degree programs as well as 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.

The GIPH is committed to recruiting a diverse group of professionals dedicated to serving varied communities at risk of poor health outcomes. GIPH faculty will be uniquely positioned to develop innovative approaches to health improvement through evidence-based and evidence establishing interventions, effective health policies testing and, as warranted, promotion of such policies to policy makers. The GIPH and its participating schools seek to discover new methods to improve global health and to attract cutting-edge thinkers who can make vital contributions to that effort.

Candidates will be expected to have strong records of high quality scholarship as well as to have or develop active, externally funded research programs; an established research agenda that is congruent with GIPH priorities; and experience in teaching and/or mentoring graduate and undergraduate students.  We will consider faculty appropriate for tenure, tenure-track, clinical and research appointments.  For the latter appointment teaching is not required but is encouraged.  Candidates may also be considered for joint appointments with the GIPH and one of the collaborating schools. In the case of joint appointments with tenure, tenure is granted by the collaborating school.

Initial screening of applicants by a cross school search committee will begin immediately for both senior and junior instructional and research track positions and will be conducted on a rolling basis until a full complement of recruitments is successfully completed.  Please send your CV and letter of interest to giph.search@nyu.edu with the subject line of “GIPH Faculty Search”.  Strict confidentiality will be maintained.

NYU is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
