The Division of Epidemiology in the College of Public Health at The Ohio State University (OSU) is recruiting for a tenure track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in the area of disparities in health related to racism. As a national leader in public health research, OSU has a responsibility to advance the research on racial justice to improve the health of our community, state and nation.

The Division of Epidemiology has an excellent track record for NIH-funded research. It provides a cooperative and supportive environment within a larger University setting. In addition to the College of Public Health, OSU has six other health allied Colleges, the Glenn College of Public Affairs, and the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, an interdisciplinary research institute dedicated to the study of issues related to race and ethnicity.
