Cornell University is looking for one part-time faculty member for the Master of Public Health (MPH) Program, linked to the Food Systems and Health concentration area. Faculty appointment will be made as a Senior Lecturer.

The Senior Lecturer will be responsible for teaching two MPH courses—one engaged and applied course focused on public health practice methods (Monitoring, Evaluation, and Improvement), and one applied course focused on their own area of specialization related to domestic (US) community food systems and their link to health (with preference given to topics involving components of policy). The Senior Lecturer will also be responsible for advising and mentoring students in group, independent, and/or capstone projects linked to food systems and health, ensuring student learning and application of knowledge and skills in case-based scenarios and real-world experiences such that competence in key areas is demonstrated.

Additional effort will be allocated for extramural public health service and engaged research/implementation science and related scholarly activities.

The Senior Lecturer must have clear expertise in the area of food systems and health, including the ability to use systems approaches to assess and coordinate policies or interventions that ensure safe and sustainable land use, food production, food storage, food processing, food access and delivery, and consumption, supporting improved and sustainable health outcomes. This includes demonstrated experience working with community partners on issues such as nutrition, health impacts linked to nutrition, behavioral interventions, and/or community/systems interventions.

The ideal candidate will have: • A Master of Public Health, or an advanced, relevant degree. • At least 10 years of practical and relevant applied public health experience, including action-focused community-based research. • Experience teaching and mentoring students, particularly via applied and engaged coursework • Experience in the essential services of public health: assessing needs, measuring gaps, designing interventions, implementing programs, evaluating program, developing coalitions, leading teams, etc. • Clear expertise related to food systems and health • A well-defined research portfolio that can and will inform teaching

This is a non-tenure track faculty appointment, and will be offered as a part-time appointment with the possibility of growth. Salary and title will be commensurate with credentials and experience.

Prospective candidates should upload their application materials (a one-to-two page personal statement summarizing their experience, and potential contributions to the Food Systems and Health concentration and MPH Program as a whole; curriculum vitae; contributions to inclusion and diversity and contact information for three professional references) to Academic Jobs Online (AJO) job number XXX.
