For one of the positions we will hire an economist who can teach health economics and has strong interests in analyses of health policy interventions, health care access and utilization, determinants of population health, and health care decision-making.

We aspire to hire creative, collaborative faculty members who are motivated to understand and improve public health through scholarship, service, and policy development; have the potential to develop and sustain extramurally-funded research programs; will contribute actively to the teaching mission using modern pedagogical techniques; and will mentor MPH and doctoral students.
