Job Description

This is a 12-month position jointly appointed between DFCAS on the Norman campus and HCPH on the HSC campus in Oklahoma City, with administrative responsibilities, a 2-course per year teaching load, and the expectation of a robust sponsored research agenda

The Director will oversee the three established undergraduate major programs through coordinating recruitment and retention efforts, building the network of providers for practicum placements, internships, and capstone research opportunities, coordinating the curriculum, overseeing development of online course offerings, and facilitating career placement and pathways to the OU MPH program. 

Research incentive payments are earned when the faculty members generate salary offset to their state base from extramural sources.  A general expectation of the College of Public Health is that tenure-track faculty generate sufficient extramural funding to offset at least one-half of their salary, and that this level of salary offset is achieved by the end of the third year of the appointment. 

Demonstrated excellence in teaching and mentoring is expected from candidates. Teaching responsibilities will include undergraduate courses on the Norman and HSC campus and potential for teaching in the MPH program.

Ph.D. or equivalent (e.g., DrPH) in a Public Health field (e.g., Epidemiology, Health Promotion Sciences, Biostatistics, Health Administration) or related field (e.g., Economics, Politics, or Sociology of Health, Medical Anthropology, etc.); demonstrated administrative experience in the Public Health field, and record of excellence in teaching and research.

Please submit CV, letter of interest (outlining administrative experience, research and teaching interests and accomplishments), and list of 4-5 references. Review of applicants will begin March 1. Position will remain open until filled.

Applications should be submitted online via Interfolio at
