Job Description

Assistant Professor/Associate Professor of Epidemiology

Epidemiology Department
Mailman School of Public Health
Columbia University


The Department of Epidemiology of Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, one of the world’s leading schools of public health, is recruiting multiple faculty members at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. 

The Department has nearly a century of history and a dynamic faculty with core strengths in chronic disease epidemiology, infectious disease epidemiology, social epidemiology, injury epidemiology, psychiatric/neuro-epidemiology, global health, urban health, causal inference, epidemiologic methods, and other public health and biomedical areas.  A new chair and faculty have recently bolstered the department’s vision and opportunity for growth.

Positions are tenured, tenure track, or non-tenure track, commensurate with career stage and level of achievement.  We are seeking to further strengthen our capabilities and impact in the core strengths listed above and are also open to applicants whose interests go beyond these areas.

We are particularly interested in highly motivated investigators with the methodologic and interpersonal skills to lead and sustain world class scientific teams and produce new interdisciplinary connections, knowledge, and impact beyond those within the department, the school, and Columbia University.  Candidates with experience conducting observational research, as well as clinical and field intervention trials, are encouraged to apply. 

Enthusiasm for teaching and mentoring a new generation of scientists and practitioners of epidemiology will be seen as advantageous for prospective candidates.


Job Requirements

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Doctoral degree in epidemiology or related field (PhD, ScD, DrPH, MD, or equivalent) with postdoctoral training or experience required. 
  • Strong publication record and demonstrated excellence in teaching and mentoring are required. 
  • An established record, or clear future promise, of leading extramurally funded projects is essential, as is a demonstrated enthusiasm for the impact that their research, teaching, and service can and should have on the public’s health.
