The Department of Environmental Health Sciences (ENHS
) in the Arnold School of Public Health (ASPH
) at the University of South Carolina (Uof
SC) invites applications for tenure-track professorships at the assistant or associate levels in the areas of Environmental Health and/or Public Health. The Mission of the Department of ENHS
is to understand how environmental exposures alter the environment and affect ecosystem and human health and disease. The diversity and collegiality within the Department makes our faculty uniquely poised to study – as well as provide advanced education, research and training – on the interaction of environmental and human health. The Department of ENHS
includes two research centers: Center for Environmental Nanoscience and Risk
and the NIEHS Center for Oceans and Human Health (OHH) and Climate Change Research
(one of four national NIH
Centers). The Department has a long tradition in environmental health research and currently enjoys significant support from the NIH
, the NSF
, and other federal and state agencies.
We seek to further expand upon our research and teaching strengths, and further develop our strengths within or among existing departmental and school foci. These foci include expertise in climate change and human/environmental health, human/environmental toxicology, environmental nanoscience, microbiology, natural disasters, vector-borne diseases, and pollution. The strongest candidates will demonstrate ability in one or more of these research areas including field and/or laboratory research or modelling, and/or statistical and predictive models. Successful candidates will complement and enhance our existing departmental strengths. The individual will be expected to work independently, but also collaborate and demonstrate leadership in their unique line of competitively-funded research. We particularly value candidates who will contribute to departmental diversity and excellence through their research, teaching, and other professional activities.
