Discover Your Career at Emory University

Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.





The Department of Behavioral, Social, and Health Education Sciences (BSHES), Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, seeks forward-looking scholars for tenure-track Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor appointments. 


BSHES’ public health training and research priorities follow a social ecological framework, viewing health outcomes as a result of a complex interplay of factors operating at multiple levels. The department trains future leaders in public health with competencies that span individual, interpersonal, community, and societal levels of influence. Our investigators lead in innovative research and methods. 


Candidates must demonstrate the potential to become independent investigators and graduate-level teachers. We seek colleagues with methodological expertise including intervention research, dissemination and implementation science, multi-level modeling, social network methods, health education sciences, community engaged research, and health communication; and subject areas encompassing comorbidity of mental and physical health, substance use, cancer, HIV, bio-psychosocial influences, health equity, and life course. We encourage candidates from diverse disciplines to apply.


BSHES consists of 30 primary and 50 adjunct faculty, many of whom are affiliated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Cancer Society, and state health department. Our faculty have global reputations in prevention science, sexual and reproductive health, community-engaged research, cancer prevention and control, mental health, substance misuse prevention, genomics, and macro-social determinants of health. The department matriculates over 100 MPH students per year and has a well-supported PhD program (sph.emory.edu/bshe). Our department includes the Emory Prevention Research Center, the Center for Reproductive Health Research in the Southeast (RISE), and Spark: Science to end drug-related harms. Faculty collaborate with other departments in RSPH, the School of Medicine, Woodruff School of Nursing, Allied Health, College of Arts and Sciences, and Winship Cancer Institute (Emory’s National Cancer Institute designated comprehensive cancer center). Important department initiatives were outlined in a recent AJPH commentary.
