Global Health Studies Lecturer and Certificate/Honors Advisor, University of Iowa

Job Type: Faculty, Non-Tenured

Application Deadline: July 31, 2019


The Global Health Studies Program in the Division of Interdisciplinary Programs at The University of Iowa invites applications for a Lecturer. We are seeking candidates whose work is grounded in the study of global health, broadly defined.  Areas of specialization are open, but the successful candidate should have a terminal degree in any global health related discipline — these can include but are not limited to Public Health, Sociology, History, Communications, Gender Studies, Geography, Health Sciences, Anthropology — by August 21, 2019.

The Global Health Studies Program offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the complex factors influencing health and disease locally and around the world. The academic curriculum builds upon the humanities, social sciences and health sciences to help students understand underlying forces—such as history, culture, gender and sexuality, economics, politics, race and ethnicity, the environment, law, and technology– which lead to health disparities worldwide. We offer a BA, BS, certificate, and minor. Please see here to learn more about our program.

This is a 100% time appointment position with a 3/4 teaching load and service as honors and certificate advisor. For AY2019-2020, this will entail two online sections each semester of GHS:3850 Promoting Health Globally, one on-campus section each semester of GHS:4003 Case Studies in Global Health Inequalities, and one course in the spring semester in the scholar’s area of expertise (Spring 2020 course assignments are subject to change depending on student demand and Program needs).  Departmental service for this position serves the instructional purposes of the Global Health Studies Program including the mentorship of student independent research projects.

As per University policy, the initial appointment is for one academic year (August 2019-May 2020) renewable each year up to two years, with subsequent three-year appointments possible subject to satisfactory review and collegiate funding.  For more information about the University of Iowa’s policy for instructional faculty, click here.
