Position Description: Teaching Faculty Position Description Epidemiology The Department of Epidemiology in the School of Public Health at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) seeks applications for dynamic teaching scholars to join our department. Specifically, we are interested in applicants who can share their passion and commitment to epidemiology with students in and outside the classroom, at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Applicants should have a doctoral degree in Epidemiology, Public Health, or a closely related field with formal training in epidemiology. Applicants with experience and/or training in public health practice are strongly encouraged to apply.

This is a non-tenure earning, full-time (12- month) position with initial rank depending on qualifications and experience. There is potential for advancement in rank at the Assistant and Associate Professor levels. Demonstrated excellence in teaching is required for this position. This can take the form of previous experience developing and teaching courses (independently or as a teaching assistant/secondary instructor) or extensive experience preparing and delivering education programs.

The expected teaching load is 6 courses per year (including summer) in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. Courses can be in-person or online. Potential undergraduate courses include Intro to Epidemiology and Public Health Data and Methods, and potential graduate level classes include Principles of Epidemiologic Research and Quantitative Methods in Epidemiology. Other courses will be assigned based on the applicant’s interests or in response to programmatic needs. Though teaching will be the primary responsibility and evaluation criterion for promotion, additional scholarly activity, especially activity involving students or related to public health pedagogy, is encouraged. Selected education-related service to the Department, School, and field is expected for promotion, for example such service could include leadership of a program (e.g. MPH director).

Required Application Documents To apply, applicants must submit the following:

1) Cover letter outlining how the applicant meets the specific criteria described above

2) Curriculum vitae

3) Comprehensive teaching portfolio. Teaching Portfolio should contain applicant's teaching philosophy, an evaluation of their teaching skills, and details on teaching-related professional development activities.

4) Contact information for three professional references. References will not be contacted without permission of applicants, and formal letters of reference will be requested for finalists only.

Application review will begin May 20 and continue until the position is filled. Applications may be submitted online at https://uab.peopleadmin.com/postings/21273. Applicants selected for an on-campus interview will give a teaching demonstration which highlights their innovative approach to teaching diverse students.
