The past year has magnified the ways that inequities-whether due to race, gender, sexuality, or income-contribute to health disparities. These inequities are a major public health threat and demand a concerted, interdisciplinary effort. At the College of Public Health, we dedicate ourselves to public health in all its parameters, from epidemiology to nursing, from social work to rehabilitation sciences. Social justice has always driven our work, understanding that individual outcomes are intricately tied to the larger systems we inhabit, is the foundation of our college.

The Temple University College of Public Health’s interprofessional culture fosters collaboration both within and outside the College. We value differences among our faculty and believe that we can better serve and understand our Philadelphia community and beyond through the diversity of our individual faculty and our disciplines. Join us in our mission to develop progressive, compassionate researchers, practitioners, and clinicians to build a better tomorrow, grounded in creating the environments and health infrastructure that will make us the healthiest nation.

The Positions and Qualifications. We invite applications for faculty with a primary research focus in infectious disease epidemiology and/or reproductive and/or perinatal epidemiology to join us in Summer 2022. Faculty with an interest in respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, malaria (or vector borne diseases), tuberculosis, antimicrobial-resistant infections, HIV/AIDS, emerging infectious diseases and/or various topics relating to maternal and child health (MCH) epidemiology are invited to apply. Those who model infectious disease dynamics are also welcome to apply.

The Department. The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics combines curiosity with rigorous, applied methods that lead us to compelling questions and impactful results to improve public health. This is a great opportunity to join a department experiencing significant growth. We have 17 faculty members who conduct research in several areas, such as pediatric environmental health and immune responses, behavioral and chronic disease epidemiology, cancer prevention and control, substance use disorders, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, environmental and occupational exposures, waterborne diseases, cognitive decline, and cardiovascular disease as well as mediation, causal inference, missing data and measurement error, semiparametric regression, latent variable modeling, and psychometrics. The Department annually enrolls >1,800 undergraduate and graduate students with diverse backgrounds in our courses and has >100 graduate students in 5 current programs: PhD in Epidemiology; MPH degrees in Epidemiology (in-person and online), Applied Biostatistics, and Environmental Health; and MS in Epidemiology. In fall 2022, our MS degree in Public Health Data Science will launch. We also have several graduate certificate programs including a MCH certificate.

The College. Devoted to an interprofessional environment for education, research, and practice, the CEPH-accredited College of Public Health consists of academic units in the public health disciplines, health professions, and the School of Social Work, enrolling approximately 4,200 students. The College’s research aims to understand the fundamental factors that affect the health and well-being of individuals and populations by examining health problems through foundational research, policy and practice, and the development and dissemination of evidence-based interventions. We focus on social determinants of health and social justice with strengths in cancer, obesity, HIV, substance abuse, mental illness, mobility research, cognition and language, developmental disabilities, organ transplantation and aging. CPH research is funded by the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, National Science Foundation, Gates Foundation, and other major private foundation, state and federal agencies. The College is home to an Office for Community Engaged Research and Practice, the Center for Obesity Research and Education, and the Collaborative on Community Inclusion.
