    Associate Professor of Public Health Policy and Management
    NYU School of Global Public Health

    The School of Global Public Health (GPH) at New York University seeks applications for Associate Professor (tenured/tenure track) within the Department of Public Health Policy and Management. We seek an energetic, innovative researcher and teacher who works collaboratively to join our growing faculty. Areas of interest could include: implementation science; public health management and financing; health information technology; health systems redesign and delivery; or global health systems and governance, particularly as they apply to non-communicable diseases, climate change, women's health, and service delivery across nations.

    The Department of Public Health Policy and Management (PHPM) is home to a group of vibrant researchers from different disciplines including law, management, public administration, medicine and economics. PHPM has about 170 MPH students and several PhD and DrPH students, and teaches courses in the school's undergraduate program. The department houses GPH's growing Global Center for Implementation Science, headed by Dr. Donna Shelley. Applicants with an interest in implementation science are especially encouraged to apply. The candidate will be expected to teach departmental courses, serve on committees and mentor students, as well as maintaining an active and productive research agenda.

    GPH seeks candidates of exceptional potential and emerging scholarship who can contribute to the academic and research enterprise in NYC and throughout New York University's key Global Network University (GNU) campuses and study-away sites (3 portal campuses and 12 global academic centers in Africa, South America, North America, China, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East). The unique GNU arrangement allows GPH faculty to establish training and degree programs and research efforts worldwide; offers faculty and students truly unique opportunities to engage in their research and study around the world and informs public health practice both locally and globally through the exchange of knowledge.

    GPH offers academic degrees at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels. The undergraduate program includes 13 joint majors where students study public health with other relevant subjects. The CEPH-accredited Master of Public Health degree allows students to obtain an MPH in one of nine concentrations, and the PhD in Public Health is offered in one of four areas of study – Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Social & Behavioral Sciences, and Public Health Policy & Management. In addition, a new school-wide, interdisciplinary DrPH degree launched in September 2021.

    Diversity & Inclusion Statement
    At NYU we are committed to inclusive excellence. Inclusion is foundational to scholarly excellence and critical to developing pathways to training for students traditionally underrepresented in the academy and/or particular disciplines. The diversity and inclusion statement offers each applicant the opportunity to highlight their past, present, and future contributions to creating inclusive excellence.  

    We recognize that local contexts vary across departments and disciplines and that contributions to diversity and inclusion may take many forms. Efforts to cultivate inclusive excellence might include, for example, creating opportunities for students, faculty, and staff traditionally underrepresented in the U.S. academy and/or particular disciplines; public or primary school outreach (particularly to underserved communities); contributions to the diversity of thought and perspective; efforts to increase inclusion and equity at the university or in the local community; as well as one's own life experience.

    Below are a few examples of contributions to inclusion that might be developed in a diversity & inclusion statement. These are by no means exhaustive. Your statement might expand on how you have gone about:

    Fostering inclusion and building pathways in your discipline by
    • Creating an inclusive and accessible classroom/course (including developing your skills for so doing)
    • Working with campus organizations that support underrepresented, first-generation, differently-abled or non-traditional undergraduate or graduate students
    • Developing discipline or area-specific pathways to majors for such students (e.g., Women in Science)
    • Mentoring individual students, faculty or staff from diverse backgrounds
    • Training international students or mentoring faculty from developing countries
    • Working with your national scholarly organization on diversity, inclusion or equity issues, or

    Broadening the influence of your work for the public and enhancing underserved communities by
    • Participating in K-12 classroom, museums, or other afterschool programming aimed at fostering general education, excitement, and possibility (particularly in underserved populations)
    • Providing apprenticeships and internships for pre-college students
    • Participating in prison education or other adult education programs that serve under-resourced populations
    • Developing educational programming thru the media or social media
    • Bringing results of research back to local or international communities
    • Participating as a 'public intellectual' on timely issues
    • Engaging in community activities around education, social justice, equity, and inclusion.

    Applicants must have an earned doctorate in business administration, health administration, health services research, health policy, sociology, organizational behavior, public health or other relevant disciplines. Applicants also must have a strong record of peer-reviewed publications and a track record of extramural funding for research as needed, commensurate with level of appointment. 

    Applicants must submit:
    • Cover letter addressing candidate's qualifications for the position
    • A statement of research and teaching interests
    • A diversity and inclusion statement
    • Curriculum vitae
    • Three recent publications
    • Name and contact information of three references 
    Review of applications will begin November 30, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.
