Fairbanks School of Public Health (FSPH) at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) is recruiting an Associate Dean of Global Health who will be responsible for further development and administration of an innovative and comprehensive global health program involving several international sites and collaborations in education, service and research. The Fairbanks School of Public Health already has partnerships in Kenya and Peru, and is expanding relationships to include collaborations in China. The School has been involved in faculty and student exchanges, and is seeking to expand distance education opportunities. The School participates in a global health collaborative with the AMPATH Consortium, and there is a close working relationship with the IU School of Medicine. There are many opportunities for collaboration in research, service and education, and FSPH is seeking a candidate with an established record of productivity and extramural funding. Other responsibilities include developing study abroad and service learning programs, exploring potential research opportunities, developing revenue generating activities to support the global program, establishing a global health resource center, facilitating global projects involving other faculty members, and teaching in the area of global health. The Associate Dean will participate in the IU Center for Global Health, and in events and meeting that focus on international health.
The successful candidate must be doctorally prepared, meet university criteria for appointment at a rank of associate professor or professor, and have at least 5 years global health experience and administrative expertise to strategically guide the growth of the global health program. Development of educational programs at the undergraduate, Masters, and PhD level will require candidates that have experience in academic leadership and administrative positions. The Associate Dean for Global Health will work closely with the FSPH leadership team and faculty to support the School’s inter-professional education and practice efforts on the IUPUI campus and throughout the IU system.
