The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure track faculty position as director of its Master’s of Health Science (MHS) program.   

How to apply

Interested applicants should send their Curriculum Vitae, cover letter, and the names and addresses of three references by December 15, 2018 to note that to achieve efficiency of review and fairness to all applicants, we will not review incomplete applications.

The program is a nine-month, coursework-only master's degree program that includes a literature review thesis requirement. The position requires strong, independent organizational and managerial skills and the ability to interact effectively with faculty, staff and students. The program director is also expected to contribute to the educational goals of the program and department by developing and teaching new courses in areas of their choosing, but complimenting existing introductory courses in biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology. 

Qualified applicants are expected to hold a PhD in the biomedical sciences, science education, or a closely related field and have prior teaching experience. Experience working with and advising undergraduate or graduate students is also desired.     


The mandate of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is to further basic science knowledge that is relevant to public health and to the core mission of our home, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH). In keeping with the inspiring vision of JHSPH, we seek knowledge at the cellular and molecular level that can protect health and save lives—millions at a time. The department also has a strong commitment to educating and training the next generation of leaders in the biomedical sciences through its PhD and master’s degree programs.
