Associate / Full Professor-Founding Director – MPH in Epidemiology
The University of Delaware
Newark, Delaware

The Founding Director will work with faculty in the College of Health Sciences to plan and implement a MPH degree in Epidemiology and to interface with other colleges within the University in developing joint MPH programs. Responsibilities will include leadership in hiring and supervision of program faculty, curricular development and assessment, and student recruitment. We envision that the MPH program will develop into a new academic department within the College over a five-year period. The successful candidate will have experience working in an existing MPH program at the rank of associate or full professor and have an active research program, as well as successful teaching experience, with some online teaching experience preferred. A DrPH or PhD in public health or a PhD in a related field with a MPH is required. The position reports to the Dean of the College of Health Sciences. All faculty are expected to contribute to a welcoming campus environment that embraces diversity.

Ranked fifth, nationally, among the best places to study the health professions by College Factual, the College of Health Sciences is a thriving academic unit of over 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 130 faculty with outstanding research and teaching facilities. The College has recently opened an exciting new 100,000 sq. ft. clinical research facility (pictured above) and will occupy 7 floors in a 10-story tower under construction. The College also includes the departments of (delete your own department) Behavioral Health and Nutrition, Kinesiology and Applied Physiology, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Medical Laboratory Sciences, Physical Therapy, and the School of Nursing. With annual research expenditures of approximately $26 million, the college currently houses a number of large, interdisciplinary grants with significant funding from the NIH and DoD. The college boasts strong research teams in the areas of cardiovascular health, neurological disorders, and other chronic disease conditions, as well as rehabilitation science and concussion. There are also numerous collaborative linkages with our clinical partners.
