The Moravian College Department of Nursing and Public Health invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in public health. The position will start the Fall of 2018.

Successful candidates will demonstrate effective teaching, research, and service skills. The hired faculty member will teach courses primarily in the areas of epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, and public health research methods. The faculty member may also develop applied electives or intermediate courses linked to these primary content areas as well as other content areas such as public health nutrition or occupational health. Effective teaching and student engagement are essential. The faculty member will primarily teach undergraduate students. The faculty member will also build community-college partnerships and create student-faculty collaborative research opportunities based on their area of expertise.

College faculty are expected to teach, research, and serve within a liberal arts tradition. Moravian College offers a BA, BS, and minor in public health and also contributes to the liberal arts curriculum. The public health program embraces an interdisciplinary, creative, and innovative approach to population health.

All positions are subject to budget availability.


Ideally, qualified applicants will have completed a doctoral degree (DrPH or PhD) with a focus in public health or a related area of study (e.g., health promotion/behavior/education, epidemiology, biostatistics, health policy, environmental health, or a similar field of study) prior to application. However, ABD candidates with a doctoral focus in public health or a related area of study will be considered if the doctoral degree will be completed by the start date of the position. Additionally, applicants who have already completed an MPH and another advanced terminal doctoral degree outside of public health (e.g., PhD, EdD, JD, MD) will be considered. Preference will be given to candidates who have completed an MPH or MSPH degree in addition to a doctoral degree. Candidates must support their potential to effectively teach, research, and serve (community and college) within a liberal arts college via documentation, recommendations, interviews, and on campus demonstrations.


Qualified candidates should send the following to search.publichealth@moravian.edu. Please send all electronic documentation in one (1) document formatted as a PDF file. The subject line should state “Public Health Asst Prof.” An incomplete application file will not be considered.
