The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics (EPBI) at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine seeks to fill a faculty position as Director of the MPH program. Rank and tenure status will depend on qualifications. The position will combine teaching and research with leadership of a successful and growing, CEPH-accredited MPH program. Preference will be given to candidates with expertise in several of the following areas: community interventions (especially in urban or under-served settings), health behavior, health education and promotion, health management, health policy, health services research, qualitative and mixed methods, social epidemiology, and spatial analysis/role of place in health.
Applicants should have an earned doctorate in public health or population health, health promotion, sociology, or relevant field. Preference will be given to candidates with an MPH or DrPH and those with experience in teaching, curricular development, and academic program leadership. We seek candidates with a commitment to excellence in teaching and advising students, community health and engagement, and academic program administration.
The MPH program boasts over 10 dual-degree programs, and a 2016 entering class of 38.

Other new public health programs going through approval include a graduate certificate and an undergraduate minor. The MPH program is housed in the department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics (35 primary, full-time faculty) in the School of Medicine.
