Employment Opportunities

Public Health Researchers - Assistant Professor/Associate Professor
The College of Human Medicine seeks candidates for 4-5 positions to help build a growing academic program of public health centered in Flint, Mich. The goal is to expand a strong, energetic cohort of public health researchers who are dedicated to academic excellence and research that improves the health and well-being of the communities around them. At least one of these positions will be co-funded by the MSU's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. These are academic year (9-month) positions; summer salary will be possible based upon availability of resources. To build academic expertise that is optimally responsive to the public health needs of the Flint community, the program seeks candidates in the following areas: 1) implementation and/or health policy research; 2) prevention research and/or work with families across the life span; and 3) intervention and health services research. Identified areas of need include research to address substance abuse, mental health, smoking, obesity, maternal and child health, chronic diseases, health disparities, sexually transmitted infections, access to care, and social and built environmental determinants of health including violence, safety, education, poverty, and unemployment. In the context of recent challenges in Flint, there is also interest in expertise related to adverse childhood experiences /toxic stress mitigation, developmental neuroscience, nutrition, environmental health, community readiness, or related topics under the recently-launched Pediatric Public Health Initiative.

We seek researchers who are, or soon will be, R01-level principal investigators with a commitment to the health and well-being of underserved populations and communities. While based in Flint, faculty will be expected to collaborate across multiple disciplines at MSU and with health care and health system leaders to improve health and advance the delivery of care across diverse populations.
