The Department of Environmental Health and Engineering in Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health invites applications for a full-time, tenure track research and teaching faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering. We are seeking applicants with specific expertise in occupational and environmental medicine and broader research and teaching expertise in environmental health sciences.

Applicants should be board-certified by the American Board of Preventive Medicine in occupational and environmental medicine and will be responsible for co-directing the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Residency (OEMR) within the NIOSH-funded Johns Hopkins Education and Research Center for Occupational Safety and Health. The program currently includes two residents per year for each year of the two-year program. Responsibilities include: resident recruitment, selection, supervision and evaluation, advising trainees in coursework, monitoring resident progress, and development and evaluation of practicum rotations; ensuring compliance with applicable rules and regulations established by the School’s Graduate Medical Education Committee, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medicine Education, and other oversight bodies (e.g., the School’s MPH program); and all other aspects of the OEMR administration.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop an independent and sustainable sponsored research program and develop a teaching portfolio that enhances the Department’s teaching mission. There will be opportunities for teaching, especially lectures in clinical occupational and environmental toxicology and medicine, and training doctoral students if desired. The ideal candidate will be a visionary individual with a background in studies of occupational and environmental impacts on human health who enjoys working in a highly interdisciplinary team environment. Excellent collaboration opportunities exist within the Department and throughout the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the School of Medicine.

The School is located in Baltimore, a multi-ethnic city with a thriving cultural life and a rich history that is older than the nation, a food-lover’s paradise, and close to Washington DC, Philadelphia, and New York City. Johns Hopkins University has a generous employee benefits package and a deep commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement outlining research and teaching interests, and the names of three references. Review of applications will begin on August 16th 2021 and continue until the position is filled.

These materials should be sent electronically to Dr. Gurumurthy Ramachandran, Professor and Director of the Johns Hopkins Education and Research Center for Occupational Safety and Health and Chair of the Search Committee at .

For more information, contact Dr. Brian Schwartz, Professor, Department of Environmental Health and Engineering, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health at or Dr. Gurumurthy Ramachandran, Professor and Director of the Johns Hopkins Education and Research Center for Occupational Safety and Health and Chair of the Search Committee at .
