Duties and Responsibilities

Loyola University Chicago’s Parkinson Faculty are Called to Be Innovators. Join Us.

12 Month, Non-tenure Track Assistant/Associate Professor
Department of Public Health Sciences

Profile of Loyola and Parkinson
Loyola University Chicago’s Parkinson School of Health Sciences and Public Health is an innovative new school committed to applying an entrepreneurial philosophy of educational excellence, research, and service to achieve the goals of improving human potential through health sciences and the promotion of health equity. Parkinson graduates put their knowledge and skills to work in the public, private, and non-governmental organization sectors in areas such as healthcare systems and services, public health, and education.

Through four areas of study (Applied Health Sciences, Healthcare Administration, Health Informatics and Data Science, and Public Health Sciences), faculty teach, challenge, and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, as well as career professionals. We emphasize inter-disciplinary learning, collaboration, and care for communities, while maintaining a focus on better understanding all the social determinants of health. Our faculty pursue a range of scholarly research that incorporates systems- and design-thinking which translates into sustainable, scalable solutions to advance knowledge and improve health and the delivery of care.

Parkinson is the academic home for Loyola’s participation in the Institute for Translational Medicine ( ITM ). The ITM is a Clinical and Translational Science Award ( CTSA ) partnership between the University of Chicago and Rush in collaboration with Advocate Health Care, the Illinois Institute of Technology, Loyola University Chicago, and NorthShore University Health System that is fueled by almost $35 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health ( NIH ) and its National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences ( NCATS ). The ITM is part of the national network of more than 60 NIH -supported CTSA sites working on clinical informatics innovation and accelerating the time it takes to develop and implement new treatments and health innovation into practice.

There has never been a more important time to build a new inter-disciplinary health sciences and public health school. Parkinson faculty are called to develop the next generation of healthcare leaders who will drive change and expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice, and faith. Learn more about Parkinson School and Chicago’s Jesuit Catholic University .

Parkinson is the University’s 14th and newest school, which opened in July 2019 with nearly 500 undergraduate and graduate students.
