Job Title: Associate or Full Professor
Job Number: Log #19-110

Position Description: The School of Public Health is seeking a tenure-track faculty member to join its core faculty as a scholar to lead its new initiative in Precision Medicine and Public Health.

Qualifications: The ideal candidate will have an earned or awarded doctorate (or equivalent degree) in one of a number of disciplines, including (but not limited to) Public Health, Biostatistics and Epidemiology, Economics, Medical Sociology, Genomics, Health Law, Public Policy, or Health Services Research. The preferred candidate should have academic, practice, and leadership experience in public health or a related field, but candidates from other fields with demonstrable knowledge and background in population health issues will be welcome. It is expected that the candidate will have a track record of publication and grant-funded research, and will have broad, cross-cutting interests in the science and its social implications. Candidates who demonstrate a strong record of independent or collaborative research with extramural funding support are preferred. Prior work experience in a university setting is highly desirable. Excellent oral and written communication skills are essential.

Organization Description: Precision medicine has been with us for many years, mostly in the form of drugs and devices that can be used for curative and restorative purposes. The advances of the past few years has pushed precision medicine beyond the general and into the realm of specific treatments for individuals, based on the genetic makeup of both host and disease. Much of the attention has been devoted to the biogenetic process, less to the social, demographic, and economic aspects that will ultimately determine the pathway for precision medicine in society. An interdisciplinary group at GSU (public health, law, molecular genetics, economics) wishes to pursue a broad agenda that will encompass laboratory science, population health, health disparities and inequalities, the legal and ethical foundation for genetic therapies, and the economic implications of such treatments. We seek a scholar in any of those fields who will be in a position to lead combined efforts in all of them.
