Director, Center for Occupational and Environmental Health


The University of California, Davis, School of Medicine, Department of Public Health Sciences invites applications for a faculty position at the Associate Professor or Full Professor level for a leader with expertise in occupational or environmental health sciences, a distinguished record of research accomplishments evidenced by extramural funding and peer-reviewed publications, demonstrated multidisciplinary team science leadership, and experience in graduate-level teaching and mentoring of students, other trainees, and junior faculty.

This is a full-time, state-supported, tenure track appointment. A doctoral degree (e.g., PhD or DrPH and/or M.D. with M.P.H) in a relevant field is required. The candidate must have a record of progressive successful academic and administrative leadership and a strong research focus on population-based occupational or environmental health science.

The mission of the Department of Public Health Sciences is to improve the health of people through population-based approaches by developing and evaluating educational programs, conducting epidemiologic research, engaging in public service, and developing policy and other translational outcomes.

The Department covers a broad area of public health disciplines including epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental and occupation health, health services and health policy research, health promotion and disease prevention and a wide set of health outcomes including cancer, neurodevelopmental disorders, aging, reproductive health, women’s, children’s, rural, immigrant, minority and international health, and biomedical ethical issues.

The Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH) is part of a multi-campus consortium. It serves government, industry, schools, health professionals, labor and the general public through programs and partnerships designed to deepen understanding of occupational and environmental hazards and to prevent disease, injuries, and mortality from exposures in the workplace and the environment. Activities are grounded in multidisciplinary programs in public health, medicine, nursing, epidemiology, exposure science, engineering, and related fields, which serve to educate future leaders in occupational and environmental health, develop new knowledge and bring the resources of the University of California to benefit the public.

Among other responsibilities, the faculty member hired for this position will be expected to:

• Assume directorship of the Davis COEH, administer budgets, and collaborate closely with the other COEH units at UC Berkeley and UCSF in joint efforts, including continuing education programs and other activities;
• Maintain a leadership role in conducting research, identifying and obtaining extramural funding from contracts and grants including federal agencies such as NIH, EPA, CDC (NIOSH), and California state agencies, and fostering the development of an emphasis in focused areas of occupational and environmental health;
• Develop curriculum and teach courses in occupational and environmental health and epidemiology, and mentor graduate students and trainees in public health, epidemiology, environmental and occupational health, and related fields;
• Participate in service activities including committee appointments, public or community service and play a leading role in outreach efforts with the California Department of Public Health, the California Environmental Protection Agency, the California Air Resources Board, and other state and local health and/or environmental agencies;
• Oversee the operations and strategic planning for occupational and environmental programs such as the Department of Public Health Science’s Medical Surveillance Program and others;
• Work cooperatively and collegially and promote diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism within the field of environmental and occupational health.
