Job Details

The Department of Health Policy and Management and the Women’s and Gender Studies Program seek to fill a jointly appointed tenure-track faculty position to begin in August 2022. We are seeking applicants who contribute a gendered, intersectional approach to research and/or practice expertise in the areas of violence, health equity, health justice, mental health, and/or health communications. Strong preference will be given to candidates whose research and teaching interests center the AAPI community or the Asian diaspora.

Teaching responsibilities would include introductory courses in and cross-lists between Health Policy and Management, Women’s and Gender Studies, and Asian Studies. There can also be opportunities to cross-list courses with Black Studies, Latin American and Latinx Studies, Sociology and Anthropology, American Studies, Social Work, and Psychology as appropriate. Qualified applicants would show commitment to student-centered, interactive pedagogy and publicly engaged scholarship, as well as effective mentoring of our increasingly diverse student body.
