We are seeking a broadly trained public health scholar with demonstrated excellence in research in any substantive public health area. Successful applicants will have the skills to teach undergraduate courses with a trans-disciplinary approach, and contribute to curricula in health sciences and health equity including Introduction to Public Health, Epidemiology, and upper level electives in their area of expertise, and contribute to the interdisciplinary First Year Seminar curriculum.

Public Health faculty at Hamline are interdisciplinary scholars from Anthropology, Biology, Global Studies, Psychology, and Social Justice & Social Change. We are dedicated teacher-scholars who emphasize collaborative research, internships, community engaged learning, social justice and health equity, as well as high impact educational experiences incorporated directly into the curriculum. Courses are rigorous and popular. Candidates must have a strong commitment to both teaching and research, and be able to establish an active research program. The Public Health program at Hamline University recruits a significant number of diverse student groups, specifically students of color, first generation college students, and students with immigrant/refugee backgrounds. We are strongly committed to building a diverse and inclusive educational environment, which is in full accord with the value that Hamline University places on diversity, equity, and inclusion. The program provides a robust interdisciplinary undergraduate education and strives to provide students with a well-rounded perspective on public health, including health equity, health sciences, and public policy.

Hamline University is located in the heart of the culturally vibrant Minneapolis-Saint Paul metropolitan area. The Public Health Sciences Program, within Hamline’s College of Liberal Arts, is comprised of 1 full time and 4 affiliate faculty and is a popular and growing major.
