The College of Health and Human Services at George Mason University is undertaking a large initiative to recruit outstanding faculty to develop multidisciplinary academic research teams in behavioral health, environmental health, health disparities, health policy, and obesity. Candidates with established extramurally-funded research may have the opportunity to relocate research teams or collaborators, if desired. These recruitments will support the College s planned transition to become a college of public health in the near future.
Appointments will begin in August, 2019, though other starting times may be possible. These are full-time (9-month) state-funded faculty positions with benefits and carry the option of competitively awarded summer funding.

The successful candidates will be expected to: 1) teach and mentor students using novel approaches, 2) bring and maintain an extramurally funded research program, 3) and engage in professional service. Faculty will be expected to synergistically contribute to the development of multidisciplinary courses, degree programs and research.Required Qualifications:
An earned doctoral degree in a public health discipline (such as epidemiology, behavioral or social science, biostatistics, health informatics, health policy, nutrition, nursing, exercise or rehabilitation science, social work, or environmental science) or an earned medical degree with graduate level training in one of these areas. Evidence of research excellence as measured by a positive trajectory of refereed publications in high impact journals and professional service. Evaluations of qualifications are relative to professional rank; candidates for associate and full professor appointments must have stature as extramurally funded principal investigators and meet the University s criteria for tenure.Preferred Qualifications:
Candidates for associate or full professorships ideally will have experience with nontraditional adult learning and online teaching and evidence of mentoring doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows for academic appointments.
