About the Department of Epidemiology: This

field. They work with a cohesive, shared sense of mission and
entrepreneurialism. The Department offers multiple degree
programs, including MPH, MS, and PhD. The successful candidate will

its organizational structure and research and academic operations,
mentor junior faculty and students, extend its interdisciplinary
reach, and leverage the resources of the University. The
School seeks a Chair who is committed to advancing and leading the
mission of the faculty, staff, and students in scholarship, policy,
and education through service and scholarship.
