The University of Chicago's Department of Public Health Sciences in the Biological Sciences Division is searching for a tenure-track faculty member. We seek applicants conducting research in the fields of Epidemiology or Health Services Research, with a primary research focus on Racial Determinants of Health or Health Care. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, Social, Reproductive, Infectious, or Environmental Epidemiology and the effects of health policies on access to or quality of care. Because the Department of Public Health Sciences seeks to increase the diversity of its faculty, we particularly welcome applicants who come from groups that are historically underrepresented in our disciplines, such as Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, or Alaskan Native.

The successful candidate will be appointed as a tenure-track faculty member and as a Provost's Postdoctoral Fellow at the rank of instructor. The appointee will become eligible for promotion to assistant professor in two years. During this time, The Provost's Postdoctoral Fellow will teach one class per year, receive research support, and participate in programming designed to help support them in their progress toward promotion.

At The University of Chicago, we are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body. The University is a vibrant center of scientific discovery and innovation, and opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration are abundant, both within and outside the Biological Sciences Division. The Division, other academic units of the University, and the University of Chicago Medical Center, are all contained within one compact campus in Chicago's Hyde Park. Appointees will have access to state-of-the-art core facilities and to outstanding colleagues and graduate students affiliated with numerous degree-granting programs within and outside the biological sciences. Competitive research space and start-up funding will be available, as will the potential for interactions with our affiliates, Argonne National Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree or equivalent in epidemiology, health services research, health economics, or a related field by September 1, 2018, and not yet be an assistant professor.
