The Departments of Environmental Health and Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health (RSPH) of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, seek candidates for multiple tenure-track positions in environmental epidemiology at all academic ranks. Each successful candidate will have a primary appointment in either Environmental Health or Epidemiology and a secondary appointment in the other. We seek applicants in all areas of environmental epidemiology, with strength in methods. One area of particular interest is the health effects of climate change. For senior applicants with expertise in CVD prevention, or in reproductive, perinatal, and pediatric epidemiology, endowed professorships may be possible. Candidates should have a PhD or equivalent terminal degree, and demonstrate a strong record of scholarship, potential to obtain extramural funding, and interest in teaching.
RSPH is currently ranked 7th nationally among schools of public health by the US News & World Report. It currently employs about 190 faculty and enrolls about 1500 graduate students in its masters and doctoral programs. The Department of Epidemiology consists of 38 primary faculty with an additional 55 joint faculty members holding primary appointments in other departments, and 30 adjunct faculty, many affiliated with the neighboring CDC. Epidemiology departmental faculty hold >$40 million in annual extramural research funding. The Environmental Health Department consists of 21 primary faculty, 14 joint faculty, and over 40 adjunct faculty. Environmental Health departmental faculty hold >$18 million in yearly extramural research funding. Rich opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration in environmental epidemiology exist with other academic departments and with nearby institutions, including the CDC, the American Cancer Society, and Georgia Tech. Current partnerships and centers include a NIEHS Environmental Health Sciences Core Center (Exposome focus), NIEHS-designated Children's Health Exposure Analysis Resource (CHEAR) Laboratory, NIEHS/USEPA Children’s Environmental Health Center (Center for Children's Health, the Environment, the Microbiome and Metabolomics), Fogarty Global Environmental and Occupational Health Training and Research Center (GEOHealth Hub), the Emory Center for Global Safe Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (CGSW), the Southeastern Center for Air Pollution and Epidemiology (SCAPE), regional NCI-supported Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program, the Center for Public Health Preparedness and Research, the Women’s and Children’s Center, and a university-wide initiative on climate change (Climate@Emory).
