Faculty positions in Intersectoral action – Public Health

We invite applications from academics and experienced practitioners for faculty positions in Intersectional approach to public health action.

Azim Premji University, Bhopal started operations in August 2023, offering postgraduate and undergraduate programmes. The first phase of campus construction is complete and the overall 50-acre campus with state-of-the-art academic and residential facilities will be ready over the next few years. We expect to grow to about 4000 students and 500 members over the next few years.

We are expanding our programme offerings and are inviting applications for full time faculty positions. Along with teaching in our programmes, we offer faculty an enriching and fulfilling institution building experience encompassing inter disciplinary programme design, development, and research opportunities, setting up and implementation of key institutional processes, culture building, and participation in various institutional bodies. 

We believe that development education, research and policy draw their strengths from academic studies as well as reflective, on-the-ground practice. Intersectional approach to public health examines the relevance for intersectoral thinking, evidence and actions to environmental and other factors that impact health including nutrition, water, hygiene, and sanitation.

We are particularly interested in public health academics or practitioners who have worked at the intersections and linkages of environment and health, water, sanitation, hygiene and health, nutrition and health, including identification and challenges in inter-sectoral actions at policy, programmatic and community levels.

  • Expertise and experience in public health research and practice, and related sciences with strong empirical work in intersectional action. 
  • For academics, an advanced degree in Public Health is preferred. Candidates with post-graduate degree in relevant fields are also encouraged to apply. 
  • For experienced practitioners, on-the-ground experience of at least 10 years and a postgraduate degree in any field.
  • Capacity to be reflective and think critically.
  • Strong oral and written communication skills.
  • Orientation towards collaborative work.
  • Willingness to engage with a very diverse and large student body.
