Job Description


Assistant Professor/Assistant Researcher - Reproductive and Maternal and Child Health - School of Public Health

The School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for a 50% tenure-track Assistant Professor and 50% academic-year Assistant Researcher position in the Divisions of Community Health Sciences and Epidemiology. This split position will specialize in reproductive and maternal, child and adolescent health (MCAH) with an emphasis on social inequality and the developmental origins of health and disease. The MCAH program offers the opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration with distinguished faculty and researchers at UC Berkeley and within the greater Bay Area. The successful applicant will be assigned a senior faculty mentor through our Junior Faculty Mentoring Program, and will also be provided with career development, guidance, and training to ensure a pathway to success.

We welcome applicants from epidemiology, demography, sociology and other related disciplines with a broad set of research interests, including but not limited to application of systems thinking approaches to pressing MCAH reproductive health challenges, exposures over the life course (including chemical, environmental and social factors), genetic/epigenetic pathways affecting reproductive outcomes, health inequities among historically marginalized groups in the United States, health in infancy and/or childhood, immigrant health, longitudinal modeling of life course health trajectories, applications of technology and innovation to MCAH, applications of policy analyses to advance health equity for MCAH populations, and evaluation of MCAH interventions particularly related to applied technologies. The teaching expectation is 1.5 courses per academic year at the doctoral, masters, and/or undergraduate levels. There will also be an assignment of service commitments at the school level.

The Assistant Professor salary and benefits will be funded by the UC Berkeley campus; whereas, the Assistant Researcher salary and benefits will be funded by external research funding or soft money.

The UC Berkeley School of Public Health recognizes the intrinsic relationship between diversity and excellence in all our endeavors. The school embraces open and equitable access to opportunities for learning and development as our obligation and goal. We seek candidates who demonstrate a commitment to advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging through their research, teaching, and/or service.

The school is committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual career couples and single parents. We are also interested in candidates who have had non-traditional career paths or who have taken time off for family reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academia.
