The Department of Health and Nutrition Sciences (HNSC) is home to 17 full-time faculty as well as expert staff who are committed to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in professional their careers. HNSC is an interdisciplinary department with distinct degree programs in health and nutrition, and an ongoing interest in pursuing linkages between both. It is our mission to provide high quality, multidisciplinary teaching, research, and community service to foster an environment of academic excellence and professionalism for students and faculty; advance scientific knowledge relevant to health and nutrition and ensure that all students acquire the knowledge, skills, and values to make meaningful contributions. We currently offer a BA in HNSC with concentrations in Community Health Education and Thanatology, and BS programs in HNSC with concentrations in Public Health, Health Science, Thanatology and an CEND accredited BS in Foods and Nutrition (DPD), a BS in Health Sciences, and a BS in Public Health.

Brooklyn College serves students from as many as 150 countries who speak over 100 languages and dialects and thus constitutes a vibrant microcosm of the rich diversity and energy that characterizes the borough of Brooklyn and the greater New York City area itself. Its mission features "a special commitment to educate immigrant and first-generation college students from the diverse communities that make up our city and state." The college ethos is strongly invested in the educational and career success of a population that encompasses a multiplicity of nationalities, ethnicities, religions, cultures and languages. We are committed to fostering a spirit of camaraderie and shared ideals across the entire spectrum of our varied constituency. By accessing a first-class and affordable college education in an inclusive and nurturing intellectual milieu, our students acquire the skills, confidence, and global mindedness that allow them to thrive in a rapidly changing, unpredictable marketplace of ideas that is increasingly mindless of borders and spans the gamut of cultures and vernaculars.

To this end, the college seeks faculty who are eager to engage with the diversity of our student body and have a demonstrated commitment to inclusion and heterogeneity through teaching, research and/or service. We seek to recruit and retain faculty who reflect the mosaic of our student population. Successful candidates will bring their unique creativity, sensitivity, insights and perspectives to a community that welcomes innovation in scholarship and teaching. Together we will model the finest that a public urban liberal arts, sciences, and professional studies college can be for the present and future.

Responsibilities include:
  • Teach and develop curricula for undergraduate and graduate courses.
  • Develop and maintain a research agenda in the field of Nutrition.
  • Conduct student advisement and research mentoring.
  • Share responsibility for committee and department assignments, performing administrative, supervisory, and other related functions.
