Faculty Vacancy Announcement

As a Postdoctoral Fellow, supports programs in a specialized discipline by participating in the academic community. This is a non-tenure track position of limited duration.


This is a temporary two year position with a possible extension subject to funding availability.

The City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy (GSPHHP) seeks to provide a collaborative and accessible environment for excellence in education, research, and service in public health, to promote and sustain healthier populations in NYC and around the world, and to shape policy and practice in public health for all. The School offers a range of innovative master’s and doctoral degree programs and is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health. The School is consolidating from a consortium across four campuses to a unified graduate school located in a single building in Central Harlem.

The central mission of the CUNY Institute for Implementation Science Research in Population Health (ISRPH), within the Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy, is dedicated to translating research into sustainable, cost-effective population-level interventions, strategies, initiatives, and policies with the potential to improve health and reduce health disparities at scale around the world. We do this by understanding biological mechanisms, subtypes and major drivers of disease, identifying program/service/policy implementation gaps driving suboptimal health outcomes at the population level, and by designing and conducting rigorous experimental and observational studies of the impact of strategies aimed at improving population health outcomes. We rigorously assess the effectiveness of these strategies when implemented at scale. Given that many forces shape population health, including those outside the health sector (e.g., political, economic, sociologic, environmental, demographic), we seek and generate knowledge, collaboration and expertise to achieve our mission of improved population health through better implementation.

The overarching goal of the Institute is to conduct large-scale research studies on population health and on intervention implementation in real world settings (i.e., outside the research environment). We engage in, foster, and leverage multidisciplinary collaborations across different health outcomes and disease types with public sector agencies, health care organizations, clinical researchers, community-based organizations, policy makers and other institutions. Our primary goals are:
