The School of Global Public Health (GPH) of New York University is preparing for the next generation of public health pioneers with the critical thinking skills, acumen and entrepreneurial approaches necessary to reinvent the public health paradigm. GPH aims to improve health worldwide through a unique blend of global public health studies, research and practice. GPH offers various academic programs at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels. The undergraduate program includes 13 joint majors where students study public health with other relevant subjects. GPH's CEPH-accredited programs include (among others) the Master of Public Health (MPH) in various concentrations, the Master of Science in two concentrations, the PhD in Public Health in one of four areas of study (Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Social & Behavioral Sciences, and Public Health Policy & Management), and a school-wide interdisciplinary DrPH degree. NYU has an extensive global network of teaching and research sites throughout the world. These sites include three portal campuses and 12 global academic centers in Africa, Australia, China, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America. This unique arrangement allows GPH to establish and collaborate on training and degree programs and research efforts worldwide, offers faculty and students truly unique opportunities to engage in their research and to study around the world, and informs public health practice both locally and globally through the exchange of knowledge. The Department of Epidemiology of GPH is seeking applications for a non-tenure track Clinical Assistant Professor faculty position. Candidates are expected to have: (1) a doctoral degree (e.g., PhD, DrPH, MD) in an area related to Epidemiology, and (2) teaching experience in epidemiology. The Department of Epidemiology offers MPH and MS degrees, and a PhD within the GPH PhD program in Public Health. Faculty in the department also participate in a school-wide, newly-launched DrPH degree. The Department is interested in recruiting an outstanding faculty member who can strengthen and contribute to our course offerings. We are strongly committed to promoting diversity and supporting students, staff and faculty from underrepresented backgrounds. Diversity & Inclusion Statement At NYU we are committed to inclusive excellence. Inclusion is foundational to scholarly excellence and critical to developing pathways to training for students traditionally underrepresented in the academy and/or particular disciplines. The diversity and inclusion statement offers each applicant the opportunity to highlight their past, present, and future contributions to creating inclusive excellence. We recognize that local contexts vary across departments and disciplines and that contributions to diversity and inclusion may take many forms. Efforts to cultivate inclusive excellence might include, for example, creating opportunities for students, faculty, and staff traditionally underrepresented in the U.S. academy and/or particular disciplines; public or primary school outreach (particularly to underserved communities); contributions to the diversity of thought and perspective; efforts to increase inclusion and equity at the university or in the local community; as well as one's own life experience. Below are a few examples of contributions to inclusion that might be developed in a diversity & inclusion statement. These are by no means exhaustive. Your statement might expand on how you have gone about: Fostering inclusion and building pathways in your discipline by + Creating an inclusive and accessible classroom/course (including developing your skills for so doing) + Working with campus organizations that support underrepresented, first-generation, differently-abled or non-traditional undergraduate or graduate students + Developing discipline or area-specific pathways to majors for such students (e.g., Women in Science) + Mentoring individual students, faculty or staff from diverse backgrounds + Training international students or mentoring faculty from developing countries + Working with your national scholarly organization on diversity, inclusion or equity issues, or + Broadening the influence of your work for the public and enhancing underserved communities by + Participating in K-12 classroom, museums, or other afterschool programming aimed at fostering general education, excitement, and possibility (particularly in underserved populations) + Providing apprenticeships and internships for pre-college students + Participating in prison education or other adult education programs that serve under-resourced populations + Developing educational programming thru the media or social media + Bringing results of research back to local or international communities + Participating as a 'public intellectual' on timely issues + Engaging in community activities around education, social justice, equity, and inclusion.
