We offer small classes and personal attention, with the resources, technology and facilities of a large university.

Hofstra University is a dynamic community of more than 11,000 students from around the world who are dedicated to civic engagement, academic excellence and becoming leaders in their communities and their careers.Description:Hofstra University, a private, nonsectarian, co-educational institution, seeks qualified applicants for an anticipated one-year, full-time, non-tenured Assistant or Associate Professor faculty position in the Department of Population Health. The successful candidate will join a large and growing undergraduate program in Community Health (BSCH) program to teach, engage in scholarship and service alongside a multi-disciplinary faculty and diverse student body with a deep commitment to enhancing social justice. Primary responsibilities will be in the BSCH program, with some teaching assignments in the BS in Health Science program (BSHS). A tenure-track position is anticipated for Fall 2023.

Hofstra’s BS in Community Health program prepares students to be scholar-practitioners with a broad knowledge base in concepts of wellness, health promotion and disease prevention, as well as community, public health, and health care service delivery. Emphasis is also given to developing competencies in the assessment of individual and community health needs in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of community health programs. It is expected that the BSCH program will transition to a BS in Public Health over the next few years and the new faculty candidate’s profile should support this strategic goal.

The BSCH program is enhanced by the community in which we are located. Nassau County is one of the country’s first suburbs and one of the most culturally, ethnically, and racially diverse communities in the nation. Nassau County is also home to one of the largest health care systems in the United States, Northwell Health. Our program draws on the extensive expertise and resources of Northwell Health, providing an unparalleled training ground for our students and tremendous research and program development opportunities for our faculty.

The Department of Population Health is a vibrant community with over 700 students, 300 undergraduate students in Community Health and Health Science, and another 400 graduate students in our five graduate programs: MPH, MHA, Health Informatics, Health Professions Education and Gerontology: Healthy Aging. The Department of Population Health resides in the School of Health Professions and Human Services, along with three other departments: Allied Health and Kinesiology; Counseling and Mental Health Professions and Speech, Language, Hearing Sciences. Thus, there are many exciting opportunities for inter-professional collaboration.

The Department of Population Health believes that a diverse faculty, reflective of our student body and local communities, is a more informed faculty, better equipped to pursue meaningful scholarship and to educate and prepare students for working, leading, and engaging with a multicultural, global society.
