The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is seeking up to four tenure track faculty of all ranks for endowed positions in the Bloomberg American Health Initiative. Applicants should have expertise in at least one of the Initiative’s focus areas in the United States: environmental challenges, adolescent health, obesity and the food system, and violence. In addition, this search seeks to identify at least one faculty member who is committed to researching and addressing the impact of racism on health.
The Bloomberg American Health Initiative aims to improve health and save lives in the United States through education, research, and practice. Supported by a transformational $300 million gift from the Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Initiative is training a new generation of leaders from multiple sectors in the tools of public health, supporting research to generate new insights about what works, and championing innovative programs and policies that can become national models. Faculty members chosen through this search will participate in the leadership of these efforts. More information about the Initiative and these focus areas is available in a special issue of Public Health Reports at this site http://bit.ly/amhealth as well as at the Initiative’s website http://americanhealth.jhu.edu.
The faculty member(s) will have a primary appointment in the department best aligned with their interests and discipline, and rank will be commensurate with experience. Joint appointments are encouraged. Applicants should be trained at the doctoral level (e.g., PhD, DrPH, MD, JD) in any discipline relevant to the Initiative’s focus areas. Applicants may come from any theoretical or practical orientation and utilize quantitative, qualitative, or other methodologies as relevant to public health and the applicant’s focus area of expertise. A commitment to translation, dissemination, and practice is a highly valued.
The search is open to all ranks. Successful applicants will demonstrate: a solid record of scholarship and extramurally-funded research commensurate with rank; strong skills to contribute to advancing their field and teaching; a commitment to addressing the challenge in their identified Initiative focus area; and strong capacity for multidisciplinary collaboration, leadership, and public health impact.
The Bloomberg American Health Initiative will provide an endowed position of 5 years (with the potential for renewal) for senior faculty and 3 years (without the expectation of renewal) for junior faculty for candidates chosen through this search.
