Position Type

2-year term faculty position 

Position Description

The School of Global Public Health (GPH) of New York University is preparing for the next generation of public health leaders with the critical thinking skills, acumen, and entrepreneurial approaches necessary to reinvent the public health paradigm.  GPH aims to improve health worldwide through a unique blend of global public health studies, research, and practice. 

GPH offers academic programs 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 will launch in September 2021.

NYU has an extensive global network of teaching and research sites throughout the world. These sites include three portal campuses and 12 global academic centers in Africa, South America, North America, China, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East. This unique arrangement allows the school to establish and collaborate on training and degree programs and research efforts worldwide, offers faculty and students truly unique opportunities to engage in their research and to study around the world, and informs public health practice both locally and globally through the exchange of knowledge.

The Program in Global Health emphasizes the development of strong leadership skills while planning and managing innovative global public health programs.  The program offers three MPH degrees: Global Health; Environmental Public Health; and the Sustainable Development Goals. It also offers certificates in Health & Human Rights, Implementation Science, and Applied Global Public Health. Faculty in the program collaborate with colleagues in multiple countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Central Europe. Faculty in the program also participate in a school-wide, newly-launched DrPH degree.  The Program is interested in recruiting an outstanding faculty member who can strengthen and contribute to our course offerings. We are strongly committed to promoting diversity and supporting students, staff and faculty from underrepresented backgrounds.
