Bridging to a healthier world. Bridging to a brighter future. The University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health is accepting applications for two Tenured Professor & Department Chair positions. Just like our beloved city of 446 bridges, Pitt Public Health is a school like no other. Spanning across seven academic departments, nearly 650 students and 500 combined faculty and staff, join a diverse and vibrant community of researchers, educators, students, collaborators, and leaders. Importantly, the chairs will embrace the School's four priorities: undergraduate education through the Bachelor of Science in Public Health program; precision public health; climate and health; and diversity, equity and inclusion.
Human Genetics - requisition #22003058. The Department of Human Genetics maintains internationally renowned research programs in the development and application of statistical genetics methodologies, bioinformatics, molecular genetics, bioethics, genetic counseling and public health genetics. The chair is expected to bring effective leadership and management skills to the cultivation of these existing strengths. The department is heavily involved in interdisciplinary research across the Pitt Health Sciences schools, and the chair will continue to foster local collaborations within the department, across the School of Public Health, with other University of Pittsburgh schools and the many specialty institutes and centers across the University and UPMC. The chair will also facilitate training and research activities at the local, national and global levels.
Epidemiology - requisition #22000201. It is expected that the incoming chair will have the skills to foster broad collaboration across the health sciences schools and across the research continuum from bench to clinic to population and community health and that the Chair will support the department in leveraging new methodological techniques such as multi-omics, large cohort and health system data, and causal inference frameworks. The chair is expected to play a prominent role in the local, regional, national and global biomedical and population-based research and education and community practice.
