The College of Public Health at the University of Nebraska Medical Center
(UNMC) seeks qualified candidates for 2 tenure-leading faculty positions
in the Department of Environmental, Agricultural and Occupational Health.
Candidates may be of any faculty rank and include scientists and
occupational health physicians. Research should emphasize
research-to-practice and community outreach in various areas of
environmental and occupational health. Applicants will be expected to
teach graduate level courses; advise students at the masters and doctoral
levels; lead and participate in scholarly activity; obtain external
funding; provide service to the department, college, university,
profession, and the metropolitan and rural communities. Collaborations are
possible with faculty at UNMC, the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Existing areas of strength include: health
effects from environmental estrogen exposure, respiratory illness from
organic dust exposure in agricultural environments, water quality, and
musculoskeletal injuries as they relate to geriatrics and work in the meat
packing industry, ergonomic and other occupational hazards, as well as
epidemiology and biostatistics. The UNMC environment facilitates a growing
research enterprise (growth in NIH funding even in years of level NIH
budget). Basic requirements include a doctoral degree, productivity, and
the ability to communicate effectively. Evidence of ability to secure
extramural research funding is desirable. Individuals will be expected to
play an important role in the existing Masters in Public Health in the
College and in the Masters and Doctoral programs in the Department of
Environmental, Agricultural and Occupational Health.

Applicants should email a letter of application addressed to Eleanor G.
Rogan, Ph.D., Chair, resume, and a list of three (3) professional
references to rjaeckel@unmc.edu; phone number 402-559-4962.

Review of applications will begin January 5, 2009, and will continue until
a suitable candidate is selected and recommended for appointment. UNMC is
an AA/EOE employer.
