Human activities have resulted in global environmental changes that pose serious threats to human health and well-being. These large-scale changes, including global climate change, ecosystem degradation, and impacts on food and water security, are among the greatest public health challenges humanity has ever faced. A tenure-track faculty member in the area of global environmental change and health is sought to complement existing Environmental Health Sciences expertise in air and water quality, ecosystem health, and climate change adaptation, and serve as a focal point for expanded teaching and research activities in this emerging environmental health area. The global environmental change faculty member would also complement the increasing emphasis on global health in the Fielding School of Public Health (FSPH), including FSPH centers such as the World Policy Analysis Center, Center for Global Infectious Diseases, the UCLA Center for Global and Immigrant Health, and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. With internationally recognized strengths in the physical and policy dimensions of global environmental change, UCLA also offers outstanding opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations.

We encourage applications in any area of global environmental change, including (1) climate change and health, (2) health effects associated with urbanization, (3) water and ecosystem health, (4) migration and environmental health, and (5) planetary health. Candidates must have an earned doctorate in relevant discipline and a record of scholarship in the area of global environmental change and health. Duties include both teaching and maintaining a vigorous research program. We value candidates whose experience in teaching, research and service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.
