Position description

The School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a full-time non-tenure track Assistant Adjunct Professor position in the Maternal, Child, and Adolescent Health (MCAH) program within the Division of Community Health Sciences (CHS) and the Wallace Center, a multidisciplinary research and training center that conducts impact-oriented research at the intersection of technology, innovation and reproductive health equity. The initial appointment is for 2 years with the option for possible reappointment. This position will serve as the Director of the Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) program. The CHS Division, MCAH program, and Wallace Center offer the opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration with distinguished faculty and researchers at UC Berkeley and within the greater Bay Area. The successful applicant will be assigned a senior faculty mentor through our Junior Faculty Mentoring Program and provided with career development, guidance, and training to ensure a pathway to success.

We welcome applicants from public health, epidemiology, health policy, health services research, health education, and other related disciplines with research interests related to perinatal care, family planning, abortion, fertility, children's health, or similar topics. Research that incorporates an element of innovation or technology is particularly desired. Successful applicants will have a research portfolio and teaching experience related to the DrPH program, MCAH program, and Wallace Center. We are looking for individuals with a track record of research related to improving health equity in reproductive and/or maternal and/or child health in the United States.

This position carries a full teaching load of 3 courses per academic year with at least one course that is core to the MCAH curriculum and one that is central to the DrPH program. Potential courses within MCAH include the following: MCAH Foundations, MCAH Leadership, Program Planning, Program Evaluation, Women's Health, and Health of Children with Special Healthcare Needs. Potential courses in the DrPH program include the following: Doctoral Seminars, Public Health Leadership, Program Planning and Need Assessment, and Foundations of Public Health Practice. The third course will be oriented towards the needs of the Wallace Center, for instance an advanced seminar on an MCAH topic for DrPH and MPH students related to technology and innovation. Courses may be online or in-person. This position may also help develop and launch an online MCAH concentration within the school's online MPH program (OOMPH).

The service expectation of this position will be primarily directing the DrPH program, as well as serving on the admissions committees for DrPH and MCAH. Research would be embedded within the Wallace Center, which utilizes a cascading mentorship model for training doctoral, MPH, and undergraduate students in MCAH research. This position will be expected to mentor DrPH students leading research teams within the Wallace Center and also serve as faculty advisor or Capstone chair to 5-7 MCAH students.

The DrPH program will fund 50% of the Assistant Adjunct Professor's annual, full-time equivalent salary, and the Wallace Center will fund the remaining 50%.

The UC Berkeley School of Public Health recognizes the intrinsic relationship between diversity and excellence in all our endeavors. The School embraces open and equitable access to opportunities for learning and development as our obligation and goal. We seek candidates who demonstrate a commitment to advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging through their research, teaching, and service.
