The Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is recruiting a tenure-track faculty member at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The successful applicant will apply a life course perspective in pursuing innovative research addressing an area of Maternal, Fetal and Perinatal Health.
Scholarship will be evidenced by contributions to the scientific literature and increasing recognition in their field of interest. The selected individual will be encouraged to build on the existing strengths of the faculty within the Department, and as appropriate, work with faculty across the School and the University while building an independent research portfolio. The new faculty member is expected to become fully integrated into the department’s graduate education and student mentoring activities. Departmental resources and faculty mentorship will support development of an externally funded research program. A doctoral degree in public health, biology, psychology, social science, medicine, demography, or related fields is required. Rank will be commensurate with experience.
The faculty is multi-disciplinary and has a broad and diverse research, practice and teaching portfolio. Faculty research spans domestic and global settings, and ranges from foundational to highly applied research, translation and implementation work in collaboration with national, state and local partners.
The Department is home to nine Centers and large research and practice initiatives; core areas of interest include Maternal, Fetal, and Perinatal Health. A life course perspective with a focus on the health of populations links our work and is fundamental to the Department’s mission. The Department’s graduate education program attracts highly talented students both domestically and internationally. Graduates in the Department pursue careers as research scientists, public health interventionists and evaluators who actively contribute to the scientific literature and assume important academic posts and public health leadership globally.
The successful applicant, consistent with the mission of the Department, will establish an externally funded research program, participate in the educational program and contribute to the life of the School and the University. Candidates with domestic or international experience are invited to apply.
PFRH is an interdisciplinary department dedicated to optimizing the health and well-being of individuals, families, and populations across the life course through public health science, teaching and practice locally, nationally, and globally.
