Job Details

Hofstra University, a private, nonsectarian, co-educational institution, is seeking qualified applicants for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor faculty position in the Department of Population Health. The successful candidate will join vibrant Master of Public Health and Master of Health Administration Programs to teach, engage in scholarship and serve internal and external communities alongside a multi-disciplinary faculty and a diverse student body with a deep commitment to enhancing social justice.

  • Hofstra’s CEPH-accredited Generalist MPH Program prepares students for careers as scholar-advocates. We place a high priority on community collaboration, interdisciplinary problem solving, skill application, critical thinking, and teaching students to be good users and doers of research. Hofstra’s MHA on-campus program is CAHME-accredited. For more than two decades, the program has prepared practice-ready health care leaders through the provision and application of a health services knowledge base, communication skills, and leadership development. A recently developed distance learning option has expanded student-learning opportunities. The Department of Population Health is a vibrant community with over 700 students, 350 undergraduate students in Community Health and Health Science, and another 400 graduate students in our five graduate programs: Master of Public Health, Master of Health Administration, Health Informatics, and Health Professions Education.  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 community in which we are located enhances our programs. Nassau County is one of the country’s first suburbs and one of the most culturally, ethnically, and racially diverse communities in the nation.


  • Candidates must hold a PhD, DrPH, DHA or MD by 1 August 2023, in Public Health, Health Policy, Global Health, Sociomedical Sciences, Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Environmental Health Sciences, or closely related population health disciplines (includes, but are not limited to, Health Administration, Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Public Policy, and Sociology). Successful candidates will have demonstrated a commitment to promoting equity, diversity and inclusion in an educational environment.


  • Preference will be given to candidates with an established record or demonstrated potential for teaching excellence, collaborative scholarly activity, mentoring students, and working with local healthcare and community groups.


Applications should be submitted electronically to and include the following: cover letter; curriculum vitae; statement of teaching philosophy and goals; statement of commitment to diversity; teaching evaluations (if available); sample of published or publish-ready paper (if available); and names and contact information for three references (full letters will be requested of finalists).

Hofstra University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to fostering diversity in its faculty, administrative staff and student body, and encourages applications from the entire spectrum of a diverse community.
