Open Rank Faculty Position in Spatial Epidemiology (tenure-track/tenured)

The Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) School of Medicine seeks to fill a 12-month tenure-track or tenured position at the level of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor in Spatial Epidemiology. The Department has a vibrant multi-disciplinary faculty examining population health topics from different perspectives (i.e., genomics, clinical care, health behaviors, community factors) and now seeks a new faculty member with expertise in spatial epidemiology to accelerate research focused on physical and social environmental determinants of population health trends and inequities. Expertise and a strong record of application of modern methods of data collection (i.e., remote sensing, social media, mobile apps, ecological momentary assessment) and advanced spatial analytics (i.e., spatial regression, temporal-spatial analysis, risk surface modeling, GIS mapping) are expected. Ability to apply these skills to collaborative, multi-disciplinary research in Northeast Ohio/Greater Cleveland focused on any of the following health topics is desirable: chronic disease, infectious disease, maternal child health, mental health, substance use, rare diseases, or violence. A PhD or equivalent degree is expected in epidemiology, statistics, population or public health, geography, or relevant quantitative subject. Commensurate with rank, preference will be given to candidates with a strong external funding portfolio and an excellent record of publications reflecting independent and/or collaborative research programs, especially those who could contribute to existing departmental and institutional research. The successful candidate will be expected to establish an independent, extramurally-funded research program and contribute to the teaching and training mission of the Department’s PhD, MS, and MPH programs.
