Job Announcement: Two Positions at American University School of International Service

Global Health (1 Assistant Professor):  We seek an innovative scholar of global health to join our group of scholars focused on the intersection of social science and public health.  Candidates who study the social, political, and environmental factors that influence health and the spread of disease, including cross-cultural patterns of the diffusion of health-related phenomena, are particularly welcome.  A history of external grant funding will be looked upon favorably, as will those with backgrounds in medical anthropology or health economics.  To apply, visitapply.interfolio.com/25401, and submit a letter of application, curriculum vita, three letters of recommendation, recent teaching evaluations (when possible), and copies of recent published papers or working papers.

Global Urban Studies (1 Assistant Professor):  The ideal candidate will be a scholar specializing in the study of global urbanism. Possible areas of expertise include (but are by no means limited to) rural-urban migration; urban governance, infrastructure and planning; globalization and cities; urban security, violence, and conflict; urban health; and urban informality. Geographical focus is open: we are interested in scholarship on cities in the developing world, on cities in countries with higher levels of human development, or that incorporates various forms of comparison across regions and other categories. The SIS faculty consists of a wide range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary orientations; scholars from any relevant social science discipline are encouraged to apply, as are scholars with interdisciplinary backgrounds.  To apply, visit apply.interfolio.com/25387, and submit a letter of application, curriculum vita, three letters of recommendation, recent teaching evaluations (when possible), and copies of recent published papers or working papers.
