Johns Hopkins University Tenure Track Faculty Position
Water and Health
The Johns Hopkins University has embarked on an ambitious and highly visible program to expand its water initiative into a world-class forum for studying interrelationships between the water environment and public health. As part of this effort, the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health now invites applications for tenure-track positions in the area of water and health. Special preference will be given to chemists or microbiologists with a strong interest in public health working in the fields of water or sanitary engineering with a focus on emerging chemical and/or biological contaminants. However, outstanding applicants working in other water-related, public health areas are also encouraged to apply.
The ideal candidates will be visionary individuals who enjoy working in a highly interdisciplinary team environment. The water initiative draws upon researchers from across the University including the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Whiting School of Engineering, Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, School of Medicine, Cary Business School, School for Advanced International Studies and the Applied Physics Laboratory. Successful applicants may seek a joint appointment in a related discipline, e.g., environmental engineering, biochemistry, or international health. Rank will be commensurate with experience, but preference will be given to an appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor level.
The preferred starting date for this position is July 1, 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter. Applications will be accepted until the positions have been filled; review will begin as applications are received.
Applicants for the position should demonstrate the potential for a high-quality sponsored research program as well as robust teaching.
Applicants should submit:
- A current CV;
- A 1-2 page statement outlining research and teaching interests; and
- The names and contact information for 3-5 referees who could be contacted when appropriate.
These should be sent electronically, with the subject line EHS Water Faculty Search to:
