Job Description

The ColoradoSPH at CSU seeks two 9-month non-tenure track Assistant or Associate Professors. This position will receive a faculty appointment in an affiliated CSU department (determined by the candidate’s background and expertise) but will hold full-time responsibility to the Special Academic Unit (SAU), the Graduate Degree Program in Public Health (GDPPH). The GDPPH currently offers graduate training in the field of public health through its Master of Public Health and Certificate in Public Health Sciences programs.

Applicants will be considered from individuals with backgrounds in any of the following areas: global health (defined broadly as pertaining to public health issues across the globe, and not just international health), epidemiology, infectious disease, community health, health equity and community based participatory research. We are particularly interested in hiring someone whose work is deeply connected to communities, in order to further Colorado State University’s commitment to engaged scholarship.

 We are seeking someone who is committed to recognizing and confronting implicit biases and racism as a public health crisis, and constantly striving to act in ways that affirm and support students, staff, faculty, leadership, alumni, and communities with whom they engage.

Preference will be given to candidates who have experience teaching in a college or university system, and at the graduate level. This position will include teaching required and elective courses and serving as the faculty advisor for MPH students. Other teaching duties will be assigned based on the faculty member’s individual background and public health expertise. Administrative duties may be assigned as appropriate.

As a faculty advisor, responsibilities will include serving in a mentor capacity as well as assisting students in securing practicum and capstone placements. There will also be responsibilities for seeking out and building relationships with domestic and possibly international practicum and capstone host sites.

We seek diversity and inclusion in our faculty, staff and students to broaden students’ academic experience and to enrich our campus community. Candidates must demonstrate their contributions and/or potential to contribute to diversity and inclusion through teaching, research, and/or service and leadership, as well as demonstrating effort in or commitment to collaboratively creating a more equitable society and world.

To apply, candidates must submit:

  1. A cover letter specifically addressing:
    1. the required and preferred qualifications;
    2. the candidate’s experience related to anti-oppressive practices and/or collaborating with institutionally under-resourced communities;
    3. the candidate’s experience related to health equity;
    4. and how they can contribute to diversity and inclusion of experience/identity within our program faculty as well as within our curriculum.
  2. Curriculum vitae
  3. Name and contact information for three professional references (references will not be contacted without prior notification of candidates); one of the three references can be from a community partner, but this is not required


For full consideration, materials must be received by 11:59 pm MST on January 9, 2022.  Questions about the position can be sent to Dr. Molly Gutilla ( Questions about the application process can be sent to Ms. Lily Doniger (
