The Public Health Division at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine seeks a broad range of public health professionals to complement its current faculty conducting community-engaged public health research. The Division will be hiring 8-10 faculty in the coming year for 9-month and 12-month appointments. To build academic expertise that is optimally responsive to the public health needs of the Flint community, the program seeks candidates in the following areas: 1) implementation and/or health policy research; 2) prevention research and/or work with families across the life span; and 3) intervention and health services research. Identified areas of need include research to address substance abuse, mental health, smoking, obesity, maternal and child health, chronic diseases, health disparities, sexually transmitted infections, access to care, and social and built environmental determinants of health including violence, safety, education, poverty, and unemployment. In the context of recent challenges in Flint, there is also interest in expertise related to adverse childhood experiences /toxic stress mitigation, developmental neuroscience, nutrition, environmental health, community readiness, or related topics under the recently-launched Pediatric Public Health Initiative.

The Division seeks researchers who are, or soon will be, R01-level principal investigators with a commitment to the health and well-being of underserved populations and communities.
