The Master of Public Health Program at DePaul University is seeking applications for a full time, non-tenure track faculty position at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor beginning in September 2014. 


Candidates should demonstrate a commitment to graduate education, teaching students of diverse backgrounds, and social justice in public health.  Candidates should possess a PhD or DrPH in Public Health.  Teaching responsibilities include epidemiology, biostatistics, research design, introduction to public health, and elective courses.  A full-time load comprises seven courses.  Teaching sites include DePaul's Loop campus, The Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, and Rush University.  Together with Rush University, the program is developing a new Chicago Center for Health Equity (CCHE), and this offers an opportunity to develop courses that engage students with community health projects and population health datasets.  Further, MPH faculty are expected to help plan and participate in program committees, contribute to CEPH accreditation-related activities, advise graduate students and facilitate community-based workforce development events.


We particularly seek candidates who mirror the diversity and mission of the university and its surrounding Chicago, urban community. DePaul University is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to building a diverse workforce.
