The Department of Health Promotion Sciences at the University of Oklahoma (OU) Hudson College of Public Health seeks an assistant/associate professor for a 12-month tenure-track position on the Tulsa-Schusterman Center campus. The College offers programs for MPH, MS, MPH/MSW, and PhD degrees. The successful candidate will be at least one year beyond receiving their doctorate degree or have 5 years of public health/academic service, and bring expertise that augments existing faculty interests.

Responsibilities include teaching 1-2 graduate level courses per semester (20%-40%), advising/mentoring 5-10 graduate students (5%-10%), and performing academic/community service (5%-10%). Remaining time (40-70%) is filled with academic/professional projects related to extramurally-funded research and/or College interests. Collaboration is widespread and encouraged at the Tulsa Schusterman Center campus, which includes representation of many Norman and Oklahoma City based OU academic programs, as well as multiple OU Health Clinics that are located on campus and throughout the Tulsa area. The Hudson College of Public Health Tulsa faculty work closely with students, residents, and faculty of the University of Oklahoma School of Community Medicine through multiple teaching, research, and service initiatives. A research emphasis that involves community engagement to address physical activity, stress management, substance use cessation, sleep, and/or social support for the prevention or treatment of chronic disease in the clinical and/or community setting is strongly preferred. This position will not only advise traditional MPH and PhD students, but also dual degree MD-MPH and MPH-MSW students. Therefore, experience working with the disciplines of medicine and/or social work is also preferred. In alignment with the strategic priorities of the Department of Health Promotion Sciences, successful candidates will have experience with developing and implementing social and behavioral strategies that reduce health risks, leveraging health assets, and redressing inequities and advancing health for individuals, families, social networks, neighborhoods, organizations, and communities. Specific desired skillsets include program planning and evaluation, community assessment and intervention implementation, and quantitative research methods. The Hudson College of Public Health currently has over 40 faculty members and many adjunct teaching/research faculty. We offer an excellent incentive package for those able to attract extramural funding.

Tulsa has become an exciting place to live as its urban core goes through a renaissance. Entertainment opportunities include the national award-winning Gathering Place Riverwalk Park, Arts District, Philbrook and Gilcrease Museums, Tulsa Zoo, and a revitalized downtown district. Outdoor recreation is abundant and reasonable drives offer access to Ozarks, Texas Hill Country, and New Mexico.

To apply, submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a publication that characterizes your work, and a list of three professional references. Review of submissions will continue until the position is filled.
