The College of Health (COH) at Lehigh University invites applications for a tenure track faculty member in Epidemiology with a research and teaching focus on health technology. Applications from qualified individuals for all faculty ranks will be considered, including consideration of tenure at initial appointment for senior candidates. Candidates must possess an earned doctorate by the date of employment in one of the following or related fields: epidemiology, population health, or public health. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to conduct collaborative research with engineering faculty on the creation, application, and evaluation of devices (wearables, implantables, sensors, etc.) and the data they generate in order to improve health outcomes for populations, communities, and individuals. 

At the core of the COH is a commitment to foster positive change in the communities where we live and work by promoting social justice and health equity. The mission of the COH, the newest of 5 colleges at Lehigh University, is to understand, preserve, and improve the health and well-being of domestic and global populations and communities with data-driven and community-focused research and education in three primary areas: population & community health, precision health, and health innovation & technology. The COH offers undergraduate majors in Population Health, as well as Community and Global Health, and graduate degrees including a Master of Public Health, and an MS and PhD in Population Health. The distinctive experiences of undergraduates and graduate students in the COH include an innovative curriculum, experiential learning opportunities, and integrated career and professional development. The COH is host to three research institutes: The Institute for Indigenous Studies, the Institute for Health Policy and Politics, and the Children’s Environmental Precision Health Institute. 

 

The COH will be located in the Health, Science, and Technology (HST) Building, Lehigh University’s newest, state-of-the-art research facility slated to open in January 2022. The innovative, flexible, and sustainably designed facility will advance Lehigh University’s research innovation in STEM. The primary goals followed by the architects as they designed the building were to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration; develop functional neighborhoods that create a model of intensity and productivity; and engage the campus community by bringing the public into the building.
