University at Buffalo: Faculty (Open Rank) Health Geographer[]

The Department of Geography, University at Buffalo, The State University of New York seeks a tenure-track faculty colleague (open rank) in Health Geography focusing on health inequities resulting from the uneven geographies of development and environmental change.

Rapid environmental change and degradation present challenges for human health in all regions of the world. Within regions the resilience of populations at the national, community, and household scales vary considerably. The interaction of increased risk and concentrated vulnerability exacerbates the disparities in health outcomes. This results in complex patterns of population health measured broadly, including infectious disease transmission, chronic disease incidence, and mental health disorders. We welcome applicants whose specialties are related to any aspect of human health and geography. The focus of the research, however, should be on the relationships between patterns of inequity, the relevant systemic drivers of disparity, and the key causal pathways across spatial scales.

This hire will be one of two new faculty members who are focused on the interactions between climate, health, and development. The successful candidates will have a strong interest in using disciplinary strengths to think across disciplinary boundaries and will be expected to contribute to the Department’s PhD program. Teaching will include geography courses at the undergraduate, Master’s and PhD levels. Normal departmental, university and disciplinary service duties will be expected. We encourage applications from candidates at all ranks. Salary and start-up will be commensurate with rank.
