Multiple Full-time Open Rank Faculty Positions, School of Public Health

Tracking Code2636 Job Description

Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) is seeking applicants for multiple faculty positions whose research focuses on one or more of the following five core areas. Each of these areas represent a Strategic Research Direction for the school as articulated on our Strategy Map.

  • Cities and health
  • Climate, the planet, and health
  • Health inequities
  • Infectious diseases
  • Mental and behavioral health

This is an open rank recruitment with appointment possible in any of the School’s six departments: Biostatistics, Community Health Sciences, Environmental Health, Epidemiology, Global Health, or Health Law, Policy & Management. The successful candidate will have evidence of strong potential for establishing an independent, extramurally-funded research program, a demonstrated interest in teaching, and a commitment to activist public health. BUSPH believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. We are eager to have join our ranks colleagues who support our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive.

Boston University is an AAU institution with a rich tradition of inclusion and social justice. We are proud to be the first American university to award a Ph.D. to a woman, and we continue that tradition of educating a diverse and talented student body. The School of Public Health takes the University’s commitment even further with its own detailed plan for fostering a diverse and inclusive community.

Founded in 1976, the Boston University School of Public Health ranks as the eighth leading public health school in the country, according to the latest U.S. News & World Report graduate school rankings. It offers master's- and doctoral-level education in public health. With over 300 faculty in six departments, the School conducts policy-changing public health research, with the mission of improving the health of populations—especially the underserved—locally and globally.

Candidates should have a PhD or equivalent degree in public health or a related field, demonstrated outstanding scholarship through publication and externally funded research, as well as a commitment to graduate education and mentorship of students. Successful candidates will be expected to lead an independent research agenda, actively engage in collaborative research; participate in teaching and mentoring master’s and doctoral-level students; and provide service to the department, university and profession.

The School of Public Health actively seeks to enrich its student and faculty ranks, recognizing that diversity of experience deepens the intellectual endeavor. We seek to embed—within our curricular and co-curricular activities—the principle that pluralism within a learning community is a source of insight and effectiveness.

Applicants should provide their curriculum vitae and a cover letter that includes (a) a summary of their research interests and experience, (b) a teaching statement; and (c) a diversity statement that details how their research, mentoring, and teaching will promote diversity and inclusivity at our school at

Organization

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
