The School of Health Sciences in the College of Health and Human Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor or tenured Associate Professor faculty member in Exposure Science/Industrial Hygiene. The successful candidate is expected to lead an extramurally funded research program involving environmental or occupational hazards and their effects on human health; and contribute to teaching in our ABET-accredited undergraduate and graduate level programs and the newly established Public Health Graduate Program. Although all research areas in Occupational and Environmental Health Sciences are welcome, the School has particular interest in the development of cutting-edge methods in exposure science/modeling and its application to epidemiological and toxicology studies. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Industrial Hygiene, Occupational Health Science, Exposure Science, or a related field and at least 3-5 years of relevant independent research experience. Candidates who are Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH), or who will be eligible for CIH certification within two years, will be given preference. CIH status should be directly addressed in the application. The position is competitive with regards to salary, start-up funds, and laboratory space.
The successful candidate will have extensive collaborative opportunities in the School of Health Sciences and beyond. Within the School of Health Sciences, ongoing studies on the adverse outcomes of numerous environmentally relevant exposures offers tremendous opportunities for contributions from an exposure scientist. Outside the School, there are collaborative opportunities with Purdue’s world-renowned colleges, including Engineering, Management, Science, Health and Human Sciences, Pharmacy, and Agriculture. Purdue has also established Discovery Park, a highly interdisciplinary enterprise dedicated to transformative research that includes state-of-the-art centers for nanotechnology, biosciences, healthcare engineering, energy, and other multi-disciplinary activities; including the Ray W. Herrick Laboratories which focuses on indoor environments. In addition, opportunities for collaboration also exist with a large number of manufacturing, information, healthcare, and energy industries in the region.
Purdue University’s School of Health Sciences is committed to advancing diversity in all areas of faculty effort, including scholarship, instruction, and engagement. Candidates should address at least one of these areas in their cover letter, indicating their past experiences, current interests or activities and/or future goals to promote a climate that values diversity and inclusion.
