The Department of Epidemiology, Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, is seeking scholars for a faculty appointment of Assistant Professor (Epidemiology) tenure-track.

The successful candidate is expected to provide service and teaching in Epidemiology to graduate level students, develop courses to offer MPH and PhD students in Epidemiology, and conduct research in the area of gene-environment interactions related to indoor and outdoor air pollution. A Ph.D. in Epidemiology or Biostatistics, or a related field, is required. The position also requires prior teaching of epidemiology courses to graduate level students; prior mentoring of graduate level students in thesis projects; and prior scholarly publications in epidemiology.

The Department of Epidemiology consists of primary faculty with a wide range of research interests; joint faculty members hold primary appointments in other departments (e.g., Environmental Health, Global Health, Behavioral Sciences and Health Education Sciences, and the School of Medicine) and adjunct faculty, many affiliated with the neighboring Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Cancer Society.  Departmental faculty hold >$30 million in yearly extramural research funding. The Department houses several research centers including the state Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program, the Center for Public Health Preparedness and Research, the Women’s and Children’s Center, the Center for Spina Bifida Research, Prevention, and Policy, the Emory Program in Cardiovascular Outcomes Research and Epidemiology (EPICORE), and the PRISM Health (Programs, Research and Innovation for Sexual and Minority Health) Research Group. The Department offers the MPH, MSPH and Ph.D. degrees and collaborates in offering a Master’s of Science in Clinical Research degree for biomedical investigators.

The Rollins School of Public Health (RSPH) is currently ranked 5th nationally among schools of public health by the US News and World Report. In 2010, the school more than doubled its physical size with the opening of a second adjacent building with state-of-the-art teaching and laboratory facilities. The construction of a third RSPH building began in early 2020. The campus is adjacent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The School is part of the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center, which also includes the Emory Schools of Medicine and Nursing, the Emory Global Health Institute, the Winship Cancer Institute, and Emory Healthcare. RSPH enjoys the benefits of its location in Atlanta, a vibrant, welcoming, and dynamic city, a global hub, and home to a diverse and growing population.
