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.

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:

Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Environmental Health Sciences

The Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health invites applications for a full-time, tenure track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences. Candidates must hold a PhD degree in epidemiology or equivalent.

Candidates with specific interest and experience in applied and population based research in any of the topical areas of environmental epidemiology are encouraged to apply. While all areas relevant for environmental epidemiology will be considered, the Department is particularly interested in strengthening its research enterprise in the following focus areas: assessment of the health effects of the built environment, epidemiologic approaches to the characterization of sustainable communities, and health effects of climate change, environmental epigenetic epidemiology and integrative and molecular epidemiology.

The Bloomberg School of Public Health and other Johns Hopkins University Institutions constitute a highly interactive and multidisciplinary research environment with exciting opportunities for collaboration, including environmental and occupational health, risk and exposure sciences, basic sciences, and biostatistical and computational methods.

Successful applicants will be expected to develop and sustain a productive, extramurally-funded research program in the field of environmental epidemiology. Applicants for this position must have a record of original research scholarship, possess excellent written and communication skills as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications, teaching and presentations at professional meetings, and demonstrate the potential to establish and maintain research funding. This faculty position will primarily involve research, but over time will also include participation in the education programs of the Department of Environmental Health Sciences.
