Academic Jobs Wiki


It doesn't seem like too many people are using this site for public health jobs. I wonder if there is a way to get the word out about it, so more people would contribute.

  • Sometimes it just takes time for people to get used to seeing a wiki for fields that don't have one. Are there public health forums? You could post a link there. You could also populate this wiki with more info about the positions, and links to the positions.

Can anyone please share where I can find job descriptions of the positions on this page? Thanks a lot!

So glad to see there's finally a wiki!  hope more people use it.

Many of these jobs will be here:
