The Department of Environmental Health (www.sph.emory.edu/eh ) at the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, is continuing a major faculty expansion, in a multi-year search. We seek non-tenured research and tenure-track faculty applicants in all areas of environmental health, with particular emphasis on risk assessment (including computational toxicology, quantitative risk assessment, systems science, use of high-throughput data) and environmental health policy (including economics and decision analysis). Other areas of continuing interest include global environmental health, health effects of climate change (including energy/sustainability), “-omics” (including exposome, microbiome, epigenetics), and environmental biostatistics. Candidates for senior positions should have a strong record of scholarship and teaching, a demonstrated ability to secure external funding, and an established, high-impact research program. Candidates for junior positions must demonstrate the potential to become independent investigators.
The Department consists of 16 primary faculty, 14 joint faculty and over 40 adjunct faculty, many affiliated with CDC. The Department has hired 7 tenure-track faculty in the past several years and has achieved recognition for research programs in environmental epidemiology, neurotoxicology, infectious disease ecology, exposure assessment, and risk analysis. The faculty has particular strength in air pollutant and waterborne exposures and exposure to pesticides and other chemicals. Multiple opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration in environmental health exist with other academic departments and with nearby institutions, including the CDC and Georgia Tech. Current partnerships include the Center for Global Safe Water, an EPA-funded Clean Air Research Center, and an NIEHS-funded Exposome Center. The Rollins School of Public Health has emerged as one of the nation’s leading public health schools and enrolls over 1000 students in its graduate programs.
