Job Description

The Departments of Global Health and Health Policy and Management at the University of South Florida (USF) College of Public Health will hire a 12-month non-tenure earning, teaching track Assistant/Associate Professor in the area of Bioethics and/or Genomics. The emerging field of genomics is revolutionizing public health. Genomics plays a leading role in nine of the ten leading causes of death. However, as discoveries within the human genome lead to new opportunities to improve health globally, a number of important legal and ethical challenges are emerging. Creating the capacity to link ethical issues to the science of genomics will help place USF College of Public Health at the forefront of this pioneering technology.

The ideal candidate for this position will develop courses focused on issues surrounding the ethical, policy and legal implications of the genomic revolution. Public Health students need to learn and understand the technical as well as the legal and ethical aspects of issues such as genetic risk screening, prenatal testing, child development genomics testing and cancer genomics diagnostics and treatment.

Minimum qualifications include a doctoral/terminal degree in public health, law, genomics or related field as well as teaching experience in higher education. Preferred qualifications include evidence of innovation in teaching, experience in mentoring graduate and undergraduate students and evidence of scholarly contributions in the field.
