About: The School of Health and Life Sciences is looking to appoint a Lecturer in Public Health with a specialism in Social Epidemiology. The post will be primarily located at GCU London (80%) but there will be an expectation of contribution to activities at the main GCU Glasgow campus (20%).
The purpose of this role is to deliver teaching and learning, undertake research, publish in high quality journals and to develop the international profile of the subject area. Social Epidemiology is a developing area of expertise within the University and building on this will be an ideal opportunity for someone willing to create a reputation of excellent teaching and research in this area.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate experience and knowledge of public health, international and national policy approaches to addressing the social determinants of health, experience of working as an Epidemiologist (or similar role) in public health related services, and with a track record of publishing in the field of social epidemiology.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD in Epidemiology (ideally social) with an advanced level of knowledge of relevant epidemiological methodology and statistics and their application to social action. A deep understanding of current and emerging trends in the field of social epidemiology will be required. Additionally, we are looking to appoint an individual with a commitment to multi-disciplinary approaches to public health (particularly in relation to addressing health and social inequalities) and experience of applying epidemiological methods and techniques for practical use in policy and practice.
