Associate/Full Professor of Empire Innovation, Environmental Epidemiology

The successful candidate for this Environmental Epidemiologist (EE) position will have a doctoral level degree in Public Health, Epidemiology, or closely allied health science. The EE must demonstrate, and maintain, an active, ongoing funded research program. The EE will conduct population health research using classic epidemiological investigation and advanced statistical analytics and serve as a subject matter expert on key population health issues. The EE will transcend traditional epidemiology in its breadth and analytics approaches toward population and global health measures and analytics strategies. The ideal candidate will be a skilled mentor and active collaborator as demonstrated by a record of peer-reviewed publications.

The research of the successful candidate will focus on environmental epidemiology, which might include (but is not limited to) vector epidemiology, environmental risk factors for cancer, the built environment and health, air/soil/water quality, toxicology, occupational epidemiology, climate change and health, risk assessment, or any other area that fits within the over-arching term of environmental epidemiology.

We would expect the EE to teach one 3-credit graduate-level course, plus serve as an advisor for graduate student capstone, thesis, or dissertation projects. The successful candidate will hold a primary appointment in Upstate’s Department of Public Health & Preventive Medicine, with secondary appointments in additional departments as appropriate. The position will have access to graduate-level students in public health, medicine, basic biomedical sciences, and (from our partners at ESF) in environmental science.

SUNY offers a highly competitive hard-money state-line salary, a generous start-up package supplemented by contributions from the New York State Empire Innovation fund. Including access to a unique, integrated clinical-basic science research environment at SUNY Upstate, the robust research facilities at SUNY ESF and engagement with students at all levels from undergraduate to doctoral level.
