Fully accredited as a school by the Council on Education of Public Health, Temple University’s College of Public Health is a multidisciplinary academic center devoted to an innovative educational and research environment that brings a transdisciplinary perspective to health, wellness and social welfare. We are seeking applicants for instructional faculty to join a growing academic unit.
Position and Qualifications. We have openings for enthusiastic instructors to teach undergraduate-level courses in biostatistics and epidemiology as well as graduate-level courses in epidemiology and applied fieldwork for our MPH programs. A doctorate in biostatistics, epidemiology, or relevant discipline is required. PhD candidates who will complete their degree prior to fall semester 2018 may be considered. Rank is open with faculty hired at the rank of assistant, associate or full professor on the nontenure instructional track. Additional teaching opportunities may be available in a specific subject area at the graduate level. Because the department offers courses for students in multiple disciplines (e.g., nursing, kinesiology), successful candidates should be skilled in teaching quantitative courses to students with a range of aptitude and interest. Online teaching experience is highly desirable. We value diversity and seek individuals committed to inclusive practices in education.
