The Gangarosa Department of Environmental Health (www.sph.emory.edu/eh) at the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, is continuing a major faculty expansion, in a multi-year search. We seek tenure-track and research-track applicants at all ranks in all areas of environmental health, with particular emphasis on 1) exposure assessment (focus areas: knowledge of environmental chemical exposure pathways and measurement techniques, laboratory experience with emphasis on mass spectrometry using targeted or untargeted approaches, potential to manage a laboratory with complex studies), 2) -omics and microbiome (focus areas: exposome, metabolomics, epigenomics, systems biology, microbiome analyses), 3) environmental determinants of infectious disease, 4) environmental justice, 5) environmental epidemiology, and 6) climate change (focus areas: downscaled estimates of climate change, health disparities in climate impacts, co-benefits of mitigation, climate adaptation strategies. Candidates for senior positions should have a strong record of scholarship and teaching, a demonstrated ability to secure external funding, and an established, high-impact research program. Candidates for junior positions must demonstrate the potential to become independent investigators. A doctoral degree and some experience in environmental health research are required. Applications from women and historically underrepresented minorities are particularly welcome.
The Department consists of 18 primary faculty, 20 joint faculty, and over 50 adjunct faculty, many affiliated with CDC. The Department has hired 9 faculty in the past several years and has achieved recognition for research programs in environmental epidemiology, toxicology, infectious disease ecology, exposure science, risk analysis and implementation science. Multiple opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration in environmental health exist with other academic departments and with nearby institutions, including the CDC and Georgia Tech. Current partnerships and centers include a NIEHS Environmental Health Sciences Core Center (Exposome focus), NIEHS-designated Children's Health Exposure Analysis Resource (CHEAR) Laboratory, NIEHS/USEPA Children’s Environmental Health Center (Center for Children's Health, the Environment, the Microbiome and Metabolomics), Fogarty Global Environmental and Occupational Health Training and Research Center (GEOHealth Hub), Southeastern Center for Air Pollution and Epidemiology, the Emory Center for Global Safe Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, and a university-wide initiative on climate change (Climate@Emory).
