Assistant Professor – Public Health Policy and Administration (Tenure Track)
The Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in our Public Health Policy and Administration (PHPA) program. The successfulcandidate will join our faculty in delivering a unique transdisciplinary research, education, and practice-oriented PHPA program that integrates innovative theoretical, methodological, and pedagogical approaches designed to improve population health and promote social, environmental, and health equity. We seek a promising scholar with research and teaching expertise in the fields of health impact assessment, health economics/econometrics, policy evaluation, health care policy from a population health perspective, and/or public health administration and practice. Preference will be given to candidates whose research programs cross boundaries between public health and the social sciences with strong quantitative skills. This position is a 100% hard-funded tenured 9-month academic year appointment with competitive salary, an attractive benefits and start-up package, and the possibility to generate summer salary.
The candidate must possess a PhD, ScD, or DrPH in Health Policy, Health Services Administration/ Management, or other relevant doctoral degree in public health or related fields such as economics, political science, or sociology. We encourage applications from diverse subspecialties; priority will be given to candidates with previous academic position(s) especially in programs or schools of public health, and those whose research and teaching areas complement existing PHPA faculty interests, including socioeconomic stratification, racial/ethnic health disparities, tobacco control, and social media. Other faculty in the Zilber School are involved in research that spans life-course analyses, maternal child health, epigenetics, developmental neurobiology and immunotoxicology, environmental toxicology, social and environmental epidemiology, and statistical genetics. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the delivery of the PHPA program and policy relevant classes at the undergraduate level; teach and mentor culturally- and socially-diverse students; advance their own externally-funded research program; and collaborate across disciplines with academic colleagues in the Zilber School and the University, as well as with community partners and policy stakeholders.
