The University of California, Irvine’s Program in Public Health seeks applicants for a full-time tenure-track or tenured (open rank) faculty position in the Department of Health, Society, and Behavior (DHSB). We invite applicants at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level with expertise in any area of nutrition policy, which could include but is not limited to research on food and nutrition programs or policies; diet-related diseases and disparities (e.g., obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease); and food access, systems, or environments. We welcome applications from researchers with programs that directly inform at least one of DHSB’s focus areas: health equity, health behavior, social determinants of health, and health policy.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the research and teaching missions of DHSB, and to help shape and expand our growing division of health policy as we transition from a Program to a School of Population and Public Health. Qualifications include exceptional potential or a demonstrated record of publishing high-impact and policy relevant research in nutrition policy and experience teaching and mentoring undergraduate and/or graduate students (commensurate with career stage). While not a requirement, the ability to seek and obtain extramural funding is also a strength. Faculty in DHSB teach and mentor students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including Master of Public Health (MPH) and Public Health doctoral students in the Disease Prevention and Global Health concentrations. We plan to establish a new MPH in health policy and the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to this new program with their teaching and/or service.
This is a state-funded, 9-month position. All applicants must have a doctoral degree (e.g., PhD, DrPH, ScD, MD, or equivalent) in nutrition, public health, health policy, economics, public policy, sociology, or a closely related field.
Review of applications will continue until the position is filled. The Program in Public Health recognizes the value of diversity in its faculty and strongly supports UCI’s mission for equity and inclusiveness. We are committed to ensuring accountability, providing training and education, conducting responsive research and building sustainable partnerships. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply. Qualified applicants must have the demonstrated ability to work with a diverse group of colleagues and to teach and mentor a diverse student body.
