The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health seeks to improve the health of people across the nation and around the world by working to understand and address addiction and overdose in all its forms. Through the Bloomberg American Health Initiative, we are seeking multiple tenured or tenure-track faculty who seek insight and pursue action to prevent or address the impact of addiction and overdose in the United States. Applicants may focus their scholarship in any area related to addiction and overdose including (but not limited to) epidemiology, prevention of overdose, harm reduction, drug treatment, opiate policy and prescribing, opioid policy, and criminal justice reform as it relates to addiction and overdose. Scholarship may focus on clarifying the health and social impact of addiction and overdose, developing and evaluating innovative interventions, or other substantive contributions to the field. Experts in a broad range of disciplines are encouraged to apply, including (but not limited to) epidemiology, social and behavioral sciences, health policy, health services, community-based research, and addiction medicine. We specifically seek candidates committed to cross-disciplinary, collaborative research.
The Bloomberg American Health Initiative aims to improve health and save lives in the United States by tackling five of America's critical health challenges: addiction and overdose, environmental challenges, violence, obesity and the food system, and risks to adolescent health. Supported by a transformational $300 million gift from the Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Initiative aims to have impact through extensive collaborations with community and national partners, by training a new generation of leaders from multiple sectors in the tools of public health, by supporting a broad range of research to generate new insights, and by championing innovative programs and policies that can become national models. Faculty members chosen through this search will participate in the leadership of these efforts.
The Bloomberg American Health Initiative will provide a renewable endowed position of 5 years for candidate(s) chosen through this search.
The faculty member will have a primary appointment in the department best aligned with her/his/their interests and discipline base, and rank will be commensurate with experience. Applicants should be trained at the doctoral level (e.g., PhD, MD, JD) in one of a diverse set of disciplines contributing to solutions to understand, prevent, and mitigate the impact of addiction and overdose.
Successful applicants will have demonstrated: a commitment to addressing addiction and overdose, excellent scholarship that integrates student learning; appreciation for diversity and the needs of marginalized populations; and the leadership skills essential for multidisciplinary, collaborative, extramurally-funded research.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. For full consideration, applications should be received no later than May 15, 2019.
Applicants should submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and the names of three references through Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/62078. Inquiries should be addressed to Ms. Susan Williams, Administrative Specialist, firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-955-3480.
