Course Director, Non-Communicable Diseases, Master of Science in Global Health Program

The Institute for Global Health Sciences Master of Science Program is searching for an educator to teach a course on Non-Communicable Diseases. This course GHS 202B Health, the Environment, and Chronic Disease has been taught from the inception of the program for the last 11 years. The current instructor is retiring from the position.

The structure of the course includes lectures, guest lectures, small group discussions, projects, and exams. This year, the course will be taught remotely but will resume as an in-person course when COVID restrictions are lifted in AY 2021-22.

The ideal candidate will have had experience in research, education, or clinical care in NCDs with a global health focus. For the purposes of our program, we define global health to be international or domestic but with a focus on health equity. Previous teaching experience is preferred. Due to the late nature of this hiring, previous course syllabi and materials will be made available so the selected Course Director will not need to develop a new course. IGHS Education is committed to supporting efforts to advance equitable access to education and outreach at all levels and as a result encourages and values applicants from diverse and underrepresented communities.

The course is taught twice weekly (3 hours per class) for a total of five weeks between March 27th and April 25th, 2021. Current course enrollment is 30-35 students. Two teaching assistants are provided for the course.

Faculty are required to attend quarterly faculty meetings, a yearly retreat, and qualifying and comprehensive exams. All faculty receive student evaluations and program reviews yearly.

The position of Course Director is not offered as a campus faculty appointment and as a result is open to candidates already employed in the UC system. The selected Course Director will receive a stipend of up to $22,000 for the quarter.

The Master of Science in Global Health is a one-year, four-quarter program designed for those who wish to acquire expertise and develop leadership skills in the field of global health. Graduates are prepared for careers in research, policy, organizational leadership, program management and evaluation, and academia.
