Emory College of Arts and Sciences undergraduate major in Human Health and minors in predictive and global health and nutrition science seeks a Lecturer to begin fall semester of 2016.  This is a full-time teaching position requiring five courses a year, including a large lecture course and small seminars.  Our program is a liberal arts curriculum and we seek candidates committed to teaching innovative courses for undergraduates.  The PhD is mandatory; the specific discipline is open but requires an individual focused on health with a broad perspective, including cross-cultural fluency.  The position involves the intersection of health, society and culture with an appreciation for both the science of health and the broader meaning of health and the human condition. A record of publication and familiarity with funding is important. An individual with experience working in a multidisciplinary environment is preferred, with a focus on integrating health with contextual questions of society and culture. Documented experience in teaching interdisciplinary courses is required with a track record of topical courses in the cultural and social perspectives of health, mental health, social constructs of disease, for example. Successful candidates will have the ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment and mentor undergraduate student research and to expand relationships between undergraduate and graduate student involvement in the Center.  The initial contract is for three years, renewable upon review.  Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a personal statement summarizing teaching experience and interest, syllabi from representative courses, and a description of leadership efforts and contributions to diversity are encouraged.  Submit your application and names of three references by October 31, 2015.
