Open Rank Faculty Position in Public Health Sciences
The Department of Public Health Sciences at the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine invites applications to fill a ladder rank faculty position at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor Regular, Regular/In-Residence or In-Residence series encompassing all levels of Public Health Sciences. The expected start date is July 1, 2021.
While the Department is continuing to build research strength in all areas across Public Health there is a preference for research focused on chronic disease, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease or dementia. We search for candidates who demonstrate excellence, originality and productivity in research and a strong interest in teaching and mentoring, combined with a commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.
In addition to a strong record of research and teaching excellence, the successful candidate will demonstrate an understanding of the barriers preventing full participation of underrepresented minorities in higher education. This search is part of a campus-wide initiative to hire leading research faculty with a strong commitment to research, teaching and service that will promote success of underrepresented minority students (African-American, Latino(a)/Chicano(a), Hispanic, and Native American), faculty and community. Applicants' track record of engagement and activity related to diversity, equal opportunity, and inclusion, as well as a clearly articulated vision of how their work at UC Davis will continue to contribute to the University's mission of serving the needs of our diverse state and student population, will be a significant part of the overall evaluation of the candidate's qualifications for a faculty appointment.
