This CRC in Global Health Policy is expected to be a full-time, tenure-stream appointment, made at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. degree and will have a compelling record of scholarship and policy engagement and be an emerging international leader in their field of research and whose profile and research proposal both meet CRC program criteria and demonstrate an excellent fit with institutional strategic goals and the aims of the position. The Chair will be expected to maintain an outstanding program of research, to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, to supervise undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows, to contribute to service, and to contribute to the public role of the School through various types of policy engagement.
