Rutgers Global Health Institute is Hiring Tenure-Track/Tenured Faculty
Global health is less about geography than it is about equity. All over the world and right here at home, there are tremendous disparities in access to care and in the conditions that make good health possible.
These disparities include social and environmental determinants of health, which represent a complex interplay of factors that can be approached through different disciplines and from many angles.
Rutgers Global Health Institute is recruiting for multiple open-rank faculty positions to accelerate our role in addressing urgent issues in global health and confronting health inequities, no matter where they occur in the world.
We Are Actively Recruiting Faculty Members
Searches are underway for the following faculty positions at Rutgers Global Health Institute:
- Cancer Care and Prevention in Sub-Saharan Africa
- Global Health
- Health Equity, Social Justice, and Population Health
We are seeking to recruit tenure-track/tenured faculty whose experiences have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a core value of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, of which our institute is a part, diversity embodies inclusiveness, mutual respect, and multiple perspectives and serves as a driver for excellence and for achieving equity in health and health care. We embrace and celebrate the multiple dimensions of diversity that each member of our community offers, including but not limited to socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, religion, geography, disability, and age.
Faculty Position: Cancer Care and Prevention in Sub-Saharan Africa
Rutgers Global Health Institute invites applications for an open-rank faculty position that will focus on identifying and addressing crucial deficiencies in cancer care, treatment, and prevention in sub-Saharan Africa.
Sub-Saharan Africa experiences great health disparities relative to most other regions of the world. There are minimal prevention and support services, long delays in cancer detection and diagnosis, deficiencies in the availability of cancer medications, unreliable data registries, and severe shortages in the specialty-trained workforce.
We are seeking applications from committed investigators to join our institute and the appropriate affiliated Rutgers school or health system at assistant or associate/full professor level (tenure track or tenured).
Successful candidates are expected to contribute to rigorous science and knowledge development. They would establish innovative, collaborative research programs and express a strong commitment to the graduate and medical education missions of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences. They also are likely to share an appointment with Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the state’s only National Cancer Institute-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Responsibilities include a combination of research, educational, and clinical care duties (if relevant). Teaching responsibilities may include didactic lectures to fellows, residents, medical and/or graduate students, and nursing staff. Interdisciplinary researchers are preferred. Candidates may be engaged in collaborations with existing research teams in sub-Saharan Africa, but this is not a requirement. Residence location is not restricted to New Jersey.

Faculty Position: Global Health
The world’s rapidly changing health care landscape and Rutgers Global Health Institute’s focus on health equity are drivers for this search.
Across the university’s 29 schools and 300-plus research centers and institutes, Rutgers faculty have strengths in many aspects of global health: new and old epidemics and pandemics, neglected infectious diseases, environmental impacts on health, improving health systems and policies, health economics, noncommunicable diseases, and social determinants of health. Rutgers Global Health Institute’s focus areas highlight these and other broad fields within global health, which demand a multipronged approach and diverse disciplines in order to create impact.
Rutgers Global Health Institute invites applications for faculty whose work focuses on any of the broad areas of global health. We are seeking applications from committed investigators to join our institute and the appropriate affiliated Rutgers school or health system at assistant or associate/full professor level (tenure track or tenured). Residence location is not restricted to New Jersey.
Through this search, we seek to identify extraordinary scholars in their fields. Responsibilities include a combination of research and other activity, depending on the applicants’ fields of inquiry.
Faculty Position: Health Equity, Social Justice, and Population Health
Rutgers is invested in a diverse faculty and committed to inclusive excellence. Health Equity is a pillar of the new Presidential Faculty Diversity Initiative.
Health equity, social justice, and population health are core elements of global health, a field “that places a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide” (JP Koplan et al., 2009).
Rutgers Global Health Institute seeks to identify extraordinary scholars from fields including but not limited to health, health care, public health, epidemiology, bioinformatics, law, or related fields and who have a demonstrated track record of scholarly work in health equity, discrimination, structural racism, inclusion, diversity, or related disciplines.
Successful candidates are expected to develop independent, federally funded research programs, and they are committed to addressing the needs of vulnerable populations. Responsibilities of the position depend on the type of faculty hired.
Candidates are expected to apply an interdisciplinary approach and work collaboratively with other researchers, faculty, community partners, and stakeholders to advance health equity in their work.
