Water, Emerging Contaminants and Health
(Exposure Sciences and Environmental Epidemiology)
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, emerging contaminants, and health. Special preference will be given to chemists with a strong interest in public health working in the fields of water use or reuse or sanitation with a focus on emerging chemical 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; Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Education; Carey 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 and will interface with broader departmental interests and expertise such as emerging microbiological contaminants, sanitary engineering and water reuse in a global context.
- 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 the Fall 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter.
- Special preference will be given to chemists with a strong interest in public health working in the fields of water use or reuse or sanitation with a focus on emerging chemical contaminants. However, outstanding applicants working in other water-related, public health areas are also encouraged to apply.
Applications will be accepted until the position has been filled with initial review beginning June 15, 2015. 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 references who could be contacted when appropriate.
These should be sent electronically, with the subject line EHS Water Faculty Search to:
Attention: Professor Kellogg Schwab, Search Committee Chair, Department of Environmental Health Sciences, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University, 615 North Wolfe Street, Baltimore, MD 21205.
The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health invites applications for full-time, tenure track faculty positions in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences. We are seeking investigators with specific research expertise in exposure assessment and/or occupational hygiene. We invite applications for 12-month, tenure-track research and teaching positions in the following areas:
- Aerosol science and health with a focus on aerosol generation, collection and physical/chemical characterization for health-related research;
- Characterization of air pollutants with a focus on development of sampling methods and assessment of health risk;
- Innovative exposure assessment methodologies and technologies; or
- Statistical and design methodology for occupational and environmental exposure assessment.
The ideal candidates will be visionary individuals with a human health studies background who enjoy working in a highly interdisciplinary team environment. Excellent collaboration opportunities exist within the Department and throughout the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the School of Medicine, and the Whiting School of Engineering. Rank will be commensurate with experience. Certification or eligibility for certification by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene will be viewed as a plus. Review of applications will begin on January 1, 2016 and continue until the positions are filled.
Applicants for these positions should demonstrate a potential for high-quality teaching as well as for developing a sponsored research program. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae and a 1-2 page statement outlining research and teaching interests. These materials should be sent electronically, with the subject line EHS EXPOSURE SCI Search, to EHEXPSCI@jhu.edu.
The Johns Hopkins University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer committed to recruiting, supporting, and fostering a diverse community of outstanding faculty, staff, and students. All applicants who share this goal are encouraged to apply.
