Inequities and health disparities are a major public health threat and demand a concerted, interdisciplinary effort. At the College of Public Health, we dedicate ourselves to public health in all its parameters, from epidemiology to nursing, from social work to rehabilitation sciences. Social justice has always driven our work: This understanding that individual outcomes are intricately tied to the larger systems we inhabit is the foundation of our college. Temple University College of Public Health’s interprofessional culture fosters collaboration both within and outside the College. We value differences among our faculty and believe that we can better serve and understand our Philadelphia community through the diversity of our individual faculty and our disciplines. Join us in our mission to develop progressive, compassionate researchers, practitioners, and clinicians to build a better tomorrow, grounded in creating the environments and health infrastructure that will make us the healthiest nation.


The Position. The Department of Nursing seeks a nursing professional with experience developing and leading undergraduate nursing curricula with an interprofessional focus, and with a prior record of teaching to contribute to the continuous development of a positive culture within the department and college. The ideal candidate for this position is a passionate nursing professional committed to academic leadership and training the next generation of nurse clinicians, practitioners, and researchers. We value diversity and seek individuals committed to inclusion in education and professional practice. The initial appointment may be for one year, but longer-term appointments are available for faculty with considerable experience who demonstrate effective and excellent teaching and service.

Applications from experienced program directors are highly desirable, however we will consider applicants with career trajectory and preparation for academic administrative positions.

Classification of the appointment as tenure or non-tenure track will depend on the qualifications and preferences of candidates.  COVID-19 vaccinations are required for employment at Temple University unless granted a religious or medical exemption (see
