The Department of Public Health Sciences (PHS) at the Penn State College of Medicine is seeking applicants to fill a tenure-eligible position at the rank of either Associate Professor or Full Professor with the Division of Epidemiology, the Department of Public Health Sciences. The opportunity for a joint appointment with the Penn State Cancer Institute can be considered.

The Department consists of three academic divisions, namely, Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, Epidemiology, and Health Services and Behavioral Research. There are more than 60 faculty members in the Department (34 tenured/tenure-eligible) and more than 70 support staff members. PHS provides a strong infrastructure for its faculty members in the areas of biostatistics, study design, data management, research computing, project management, and finance and administration.

PHS offers five Graduate programs, namely, PhD in Epidemiology, PhD in Biostatistics, Doctor of Public Health (DrPH), Master of Public Health (MPH), and Master of Science (MS) in Clinical Research, as well as several Graduate Certificate programs. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the Departments research and education programs by developing an externally-funded research program in either Nutritional Epidemiology or Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology. The selected candidate also will be considered for the role of Associate Director for Population Sciences in the Penn State Cancer Institute.

This leadership position will integrate relevant multidisciplinary/transdisciplinary expertise in a variety of PSCI research programs into an innovative, coordinated cancer control research program. This leader will participate in key decision making committees related to resource allocation, strategy, recruitment, and institutional initiatives related to cancer research. If such a role is viable for the candidate, then the Penn State Cancer Institute will provide additional resources.

A candidate interested in this role within the Penn State Cancer Institute should indicate so in the cover letter, in which case the Department will provide the candidate a detailed list of the responsibilities and expectations. Collaborations with researchers in PHS, the Penn State Cancer Institute, and other College of Medicine clinical and basic science departments are available. The successful candidate is expected to teach a graduate-level course in either Nutritional Epidemiology or Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology of Chronic Disease.

Mentoring graduate students is expected. The successful candidate should possess a doctoral degree in Epidemiology or a related discipline. Candidates with post-doctoral training, as well as strong NIH funding and publication records are highly desirable.

With its location in Hershey, near Harrisburg, PA, PHS has a strong collaborative relationship with public health scientists and practitioners within the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. The salary will be commensurate with the candidate's experience and credentials. Candidates should apply and submit a letter of application to include a statement of current and future research interests, curriculum vitae, and names with contact information for three professional references.
