The Department of Environmental and Global Health in the College of Public Health and Health Professions at the University of Florida is recruiting a tenure-track faculty member at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor level. Ideally, the candidate will be engaged in research on understanding the health consequences of exposure to multiple stressors (environmental and social) on vulnerable populations. Areas of particular research interest include: how social determinants interact with environmental exposures to impact health outcomes; defining molecular (e.g. immune and epigenetic biomarkers) and/or social drivers of adverse health outcomes; linking exposure measurements in environmental, occupational and global health settings with spatial and field epidemiology to identify at risk populations. Research in these areas underscores the Department’s commitment to social justice and environmental health. Candidates who have expertise in implementing sustainable approaches to reduce health burdens and build community resilience are also encouraged to apply. Highly productive candidates demonstrating a strong track record of publication and extramural funding may be considered at the level of Associate Professor or Professor.
In addition to research, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the teaching mission of the Department including participation in graduate and undergraduate level courses such as Environmental Health Concepts in Public Health, Sustainability and Health Equity in the Built Environment, and Global Public Health.
This is a 1.0 FTE, 12-month, tenure-track position expected to start Summer/Fall 2022.
