The Program of Public Health is accepting applications from qualified individuals for full-time and part-time specialist positions. Successful applicants for these temporary, non-tenure track faculty positions will have the training, education, experience or potential to assist with teaching undergraduate public health majors in the core disciplines of public health.

Responsibilities include assisting public health faculty by grading exams and written assignments, accompanying students on designated field trips, assisting in the preparation and administration of in-class assignments, holding office hours, offering pre-exam review sessions, and performing clerical tasks associated with course instruction. Positions are contingent on department need and budgetary considerations.

Full time positions require a minimum of a master's degree in public health from an accredited graduate school of public health. Part time positions require enrollment in good standing in an accredited graduate school of public health. Candidates should have a student-centered approach and a commitment to fostering a challenging but nurturing learning environment. Applicants must be qualified to work in the United States and have strong writing skills.

Application Instructions
Interested applicants should submit a letter of interest, a current curriculum vitae, and three letters of reference that address the candidate's ability or potential ability to support undergraduate public health education.
