The Department of Mental Health of the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health is accepting applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor with experience and dedication to public health approaches to behavioral and mental health. Particular disciplines of high priority include psychiatric or neurological epidemiology, prevention science, quantitative methods, and mental health services or policy.
The Department of Mental Health (DMH) is the only department dedicated to mental health in a school of public health in the country. We enjoy strong connections to each of the other departments within the Bloomberg School of Public Health (SPH) and across the Johns Hopkins University (JHU). We bring together leading researchers across multiple disciplines joined by their passion for understanding, preventing, and treating mental health and substance use disorders. Faculty, students and community health leaders in Mental Health are dedicated to educating the next generation of public health workers and scientists about the importance of mental health, the specific skills needed to address public mental health issues and the integration of mental and physical health.
Department faculty conduct a range of research in a multi-disciplinary environment. In addition to collaborations within SPH and across JHU, we have active and close collaborations with the Kennedy Krieger Institute, the Lieber Institute for Brain Development, and with a number of local and state agencies. Many DMH faculty have joint appointments in other SPH departments or other divisions of JHU. We also have multiple NIH training programs that include pre- and post-doctoral students from Mental Health and across departments and divisions, creating a highly collaborative and productive research, training, and practice environment.
Applicants should have a doctoral degree in public health, psychology, sociology, social work, or a related discipline or an M.D. with public health experience. Faculty are expected to teach and to develop externally-funded research. Successful candidates will have a strong publication record or an exceptional potential to publish.
Review of applicants will begin in the summer 2019. Interested candidates should send a letter describing research and teaching interests, names and addresses of potential references, and a Curriculum Vitae through Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/62142.
