ASSISTANT or ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR IN RESIDENCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH SCIENCES
University of California, Berkeley
The School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley, seeks to recruit a faculty member in Environmental Health Sciences, with a potential start date of July 1, 2018. Applications are invited for Assistant or Associate Professor in Residence, a faculty title that confers full Academic Senate privileges in the University of California, and is supported by 50 percent guaranteed, long-term salary support, with full salary support available during the start-up interval.
We seek candidates who have demonstrated excellence, originality and productivity in research, and have an interest in undergraduate and graduate teaching. We are particularly interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service.
Applications from exceptional candidates in all areas of Environmental Health will be considered. Areas of particular interest include: global environmental health with emphasis on innovative interventions to reduce environmental exposures; exposure science with emphasis on the development of sensors, statistical approaches and new technologies to assess multiple simultaneous environmental exposures and biological responses; the role of disparities in environmental exposures in determining the health of vulnerable populations in California, the US and globally; studies that advance our understanding of the broad set of environmental exposures that jointly shape risk, i.e., the exposome, with attention to variation in susceptibility, the biologic pathways from exposure to disease and causal mediators; research on the interactions between genetics and environmental exposures; interactions between the environment and infectious diseases; and field and epidemiologic research that advances new technologies for studying relationships between environmental change and health.
Berkeley has long held the distinction of being the best public university in the nation, and the best setting in the world to study the environment, sustainability and environmental health. The UC Berkeley School of Public Health holds international distinction across the public health sciences, and its PhD programs are ranked among the top nationally in environmental health sciences, biostatistics, epidemiology, health policy, and infectious diseases. The school, as part of one of the world’s premier research universities, fosters collaborations with disciplines across campus that strengthen research and teaching in the environmental health sciences, including earth and atmospheric sciences, computer science, engineering, energy and natural resources, data science, integrative biology, and city and regional planning.
Minimum basic qualifications: Candidates for Assistant Professor in Residence must have completed all Ph.D. or equivalent degree requirements except the dissertation at the time of application, and a Ph.D. or equivalent degree is required within one year of hire date. Candidates for Associate Professor in Residence must have a doctoral degree or equivalent in a related field at the time of application, and should have a strong record of research and teaching, including an exceptional research program with demonstrated success in securing and sustaining external funding.
Candidates applying for the Assistant Professor position should submit a cover letter, up-to-date curriculum vitae, statement of research (current and future research interests), statement of teaching (including experience and teaching philosophy), a statement of contributions to diversity (brief statement addressing past and/or potential contributions to diversity through research, teaching, and/or service) and three publications via UC Berkeley’s online application system by the search closing date, January 29, 2018.
