The multidisciplinary academic program in Global Health at Yale seeks a Postdoctoral Fellow for the 2018-2019 academic year, with an option of renewal for the following academic year.  The Fellow will teach two undergraduate courses (one per semester) drawing on her respective areas of expertise in Global Health.

She will also pursue research with a mentor of her choosing and participate in the interdisciplinary community provided by the Global Health Justice Partnership, directed by Professors Amy Kapczynski, Alice M. Miller, and Gregg Gonsalves. Participating Yale faculty in the program include members of Sociology, Anthropology, Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies, Biomedical Engineering, Medicine, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Public Health, History of Science and Medicine, Ethnicity Race & Migration. Successful candidates will also be granted a budget to host events that contribute to interdisciplinary conversations about Global Health.

This program, administered by the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and led by the Global Health Justice Partnership, develops the ability of Yale undergraduates to think critically and analytically about key challenges in global health today.  Students balance their appreciation for the scientific, biomedical and technical issues related to diseases, their treatment and prevention, with their growing understanding of the historical, social, economic and political concerns that are implicated in how health is determined and experienced in the 21st century.

Requirements

Ph.D. awarded between 2015 and June 15, 2018 in any science, engineering, technology or mathematics (STEM) field or an M.D. awarded during the same time period; demonstrated record of interdisciplinary engagement beyond the STEM or biomedical fields, in particular with the social sciences and/or the humanities.
