The Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is recruiting a tenure-track faculty member at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in the area of primary health care and community health.

The Department’s faculty is multi-disciplinary and has a broad and diverse research, practice, and teaching portfolio. The Department is home to a number of centers and research groups that allow faculty to collaborate on specific global health issues. A focus on helping the world’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged people to improve their health and well-being is fundamental to the Department’s mission. The Department’s graduate education program attracts highly talented students both domestically and internationally. Graduates in the Department pursue careers as scientists, health program managers, public health interventionists and evaluators who actively contribute to the scientific literature and assume important academic positions and public health leadership globally.

Consistent with the mission of the Department, the successful applicants for this faculty position will establish an externally funded research program, participate in the educational program, and contribute to the life of the School and the University. The selected individual will be encouraged to build on the existing strength of the faculty within the Department, and as appropriate, work with faculty across the School and the University while building an independent research portfolio. Departmental resources and mentorship by senior faculty will support development of an externally funded research program. New faculty members are expected to become fully integrated into the Department’s graduate education and student mentoring activities.

Since the founding of the Department of International Health in 1967, primary health care and community health have been central to the work of the Department and the Health Systems Program. The Department aims to strengthen its work in this field by recruiting a faculty member with a track record of solid research and a promise for further leadership in this area. Scholarship will be evidenced by contributions to the scientific literature and increasing recognition for work in primary health care and community health in low- and middle-income countries. A doctoral degree in public health, medicine, social science, demography, or related fields is required. Skills and expertise in developing, strengthening, and managing primary health care and community health programs will be highly valued. Rank will be commensurate with experience.
