POPULATION HEALTH SCIENCES & HEALTH EQUITY POSITION
adjunct/Associate Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences

The Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is seeking candidates for a tenure track position as adjunct/Associate Professor. The focus is on Population Health & Health Equity. We are especially interested in junior candidates who earned their doctoral degree in one of the population health sciences (e.g., social and behavioral sciences, epidemiology, bioinformatics) or a related public health field, or in the social sciences (e.g., sociology, demography), with training in public health.
We seek a rising scholar who can help advance the field of population health sciences. We are interested in scholars who conduct innovative, theoretically sophisticated, methodologically rigorous, interdisciplinary and intersectional research to advance health equity. Possible topics of skills include but are not limited to: (1) knowledge how social and/or organizational policies impact population health. Areas of focus may include the impact of labor markets, education, welfare, and organizational policies (e.g., workplaces, schools) on health and health equity; (2) measuring and monitoring population health and health inequities; (3) population health, and health equity as they relate to migration (within and between countries) or Indigenous populations; (4) translational research (e.g. implementation science) involving social and/or behavioral interventions and evaluations to improve health equity.
Candidates should have skills in their field and a track record of interdisciplinary scholarship and application of intersectional approaches in both research and pedagogy. The research and teaching should each be directed towards knowledge and changing population health and improving health equity. Candidates with a track record of obtaining and leading externally funded research projects will be given priority.

The mission of theDepartment of Social and Behavioral Sciences is to understand and intervene on the social determinants of health and health equity across the life-course. This mission is achieved through research to identify the social and behavioral determinants of health, development and evaluation of interventions and policies leading to the improvement of population health, and the preparation of professionals and researchers who will fill leadership abilities positions in advocacy and public service. The department’s educational mission is to train both scholars and practitioners: scholars whose research will illuminate basic social determinants of health and who will identify and test innovative social policy and service interventions; practitioners who are skilled in designing, implementing, and evaluating health-enhancing interventions in action settings. The prosperous candidate will contribute to the department’s mission through his or her research and through teaching and advising students in the doctoral and master’s programs in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences and mentoring postdoctoral fellows.

We encourage applications from members of groups recognized by the US National Science Foundation and US National Institutes of Health as being underrepresented in the scientific and biomedical workforce and also recognized by the NIH as constituting “health disparity” populations, i.e., African Americans, American Indians and Alaska Natives, Hispanics (or Latinos), Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders; individuals from underprivileged backgrounds; individuals with disabilities; women; and sexual and gender minorities.
