The Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health (PFRH) at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is seeking a leader in adolescent health for appointment to the tenure track rank of Full or Associate Professor. This individual will serve as director of the Center for Adolescent Health (CAH). CAH is committed to assisting urban youth to become healthy and productive adults. In partnership with schools, local organizations, and health departments, the Center conducts research and develops and evaluates programs to advance the health and well-being of adolescents.
It is anticipated that the new director of CAH will also serve as a leader for the adolescent health focus area of the new Bloomberg American Health Initiative, a role that includes an endowed chair. The Initiative aims to improve health and save lives in the United States by tackling five of America’s most complex health challenges: drug addiction and overdose, obesity, gun violence, environmental challenges, and risks to adolescent health. Supported by a transformational $300 million gift from the Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Initiative will train a new generation of leaders from multiple sectors in the tools of public health, support research to generate new insights about what works, and champion innovative programs and policies that can become national models.
Applicants can come from any relevant discipline. They should have: a well established record of scholarship, teaching and extramurally funded research; demonstrated commitment to improving adolescent health through community collaborative research; strong capacity for multidisciplinary collaboration; and, documented productive relationships with university and community partners, program planners and policy makers.
Johns Hopkins is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer committed to recruiting, supporting, and fostering a diverse community of outstanding faculty, staff, and students; we encourage women and individuals from under-represented minorities to apply.
