We are looking for a leader with expertise in occupational or environmental epidemiology, a distinguished record of research as evidenced by extramural funding and peer-reviewed publications, experience working collaboratively and leading in a team environment, and experience in mentoring and teaching graduate students.

The candidate must have a record of progressive successful academic and administrative leadership and a strong research focus on population-based occupational or environmental epidemiology.

The mission of the Department of Public Health Sciences is to improve the health of people through population-based approaches by developing and evaluating educational programs, conducting epidemiologic research, engaging in public service and developing policy and other translational outcomes.

Activities are grounded in multidisciplinary programs in public health, medicine, nursing, epidemiology, exposure science, and related fields, which serve to educate future leaders in occupational and environmental health, develop new knowledge and bring the resources of the University of California to benefit the public.

Among other responsibilities, the faculty member hired for this position will be expected to:

  • Assume directorship of the Davis COEH and work closely with the other COEH units at UC Berkeley and UCSF;

  • Participate in service activities including committee appointments, public or community service and play a leading role in outreach efforts with the California Department of Public Health, the California Environmental Protection Agency, and other state and local health agencies

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment, UC Davis conducts a reference check on all finalists for tenured positions. The reference check involves contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Davis requires all applicants for any open search for assistant/associate/full professor to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If an applicant does not include the signed authorization with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete, and as with any incomplete application, will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists considered for positions with tenure or security of employment will be subject to reference checks.
