Job Description: The Department of Health Sciences in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences at Northeastern University seeks a new Assistant or Associate Professor of Health Sciences whose scholarship addresses Racism and Health. Racism and race-based health inequities result in disparities in achievement of the highest attainable levels of health and well-being.
Reducing racism in all its forms (e.g. structural, cultural, interpersonal, internalized and others) needs solutions grounded in theories and data gathering that get at the roots of discrimination and oppression. We seek a scholar who is making contributions to public health’s responsibility to improve and protect the most marginalized populations and to characterize and measure racism and its impacts on the attainment of the highest levels of health and well-being. Candidates will be expected to utilize data-driven and theory-based approaches, including advanced quantitative methods to illuminate disparities in both public health and health care, with attention to individual, community and societal levels. Opportunities for this faculty member to collaborate with scholars and/or affiliate across colleges are available in related disciplines at the John D. O’Bryant African American Institute, Institute of Race and Justice, the Health in Justice Action Lab and the Institute of Health Equity and Social Justice Research, among others. This faculty member will have opportunities to teach across the department’s undergraduate and graduate programs in the areas of racial discrimination and health, health care systems and health inequities of vulnerable populations, both domestically and globally. This position and others being added across the university (see www.northeastern.edu/diversity) will greatly expand our capacity to teach and to conduct cutting edge research about the impacts of oppression and inequalities across the life span. The tenure home of this position is in the Department of Health Sciences, with likelihood of a joint appointment in another suitable department.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree conferred no later than the starting date of the position (August 2021) in public health, epidemiology, quantitative sociology, psychology or a closely-related field. We seek candidates whose work reflects the importance of population diversity and who value different points of view in teaching and research collaborations. Candidates for the rank of Associate Professor should have a strong track record of scholarship commensurate with rank and teaching, including peer-reviewed publications and a demonstrated ability to secure external funding for research. All candidates must demonstrate commitment to teaching courses in race/ethnicity, social determinants of health, structural racism, critical race theory, discrimination, social justice and/or other related subjects.
