Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Department of Global Health and Population at the Harvard School of Public Health invites applications from distinguished scholars for a tenured faculty position as professor of population and family health or professor of demography.

The department wishes to expand its research efforts on the demographic and epidemiologic patterns in low- and middle-income countries (including aspects of mortality, fertility, and migration), and the design and evaluation of large-scale implementation programs addressing maternal and child health, family planning, or other substantive areas of major significance in global health. The successful candidate will be expected to lead an independent research agenda in line with departmental priorities and to play a central role in the department's master's and doctoral programs. Overseas travel for fieldwork is envisaged.

Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in demography, epidemiology, or a related population science discipline with demonstrated expertise and interest in field research. Candidates with a medical degree and relevant training and experience will be considered. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated excellence in research, teaching, and intellectual leadership. Prior experience in conducting research studies in Africa or Asia is highly desirable.

The Harvard School of Public Health is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and particularly encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
