The School of Public Health is seeking a tenure-track or non-tenure track faculty member to join its core faculty to establish and provide leadership to develop and grow an interdisciplinary team around non-communicable diseases research and prevention. The GRAND initiative (Global Research Against Non-communicable Disease) includes all “chronic diseases”—such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes, obesity, drug and alcohol abuse, and mental illness—the leading cause of mortality in the world (WHO, 2014). According to the CDC (2015), NCD deaths worldwide now exceed all communicable, maternal and perinatal nutrition-related deaths combined and represent the important new global health threat. Under the leadership of this individual, Georgia State’s School of Public Health will become one of the leading universities to conduct research on the global burden of non-communicable diseases and their prevention.

The GRAND initiative is part of Georgia State’s Next Generation research program. This program provides new opportunity for collaboration and innovation. The selected candidate will be expected to have a substantial track record of sponsor-funded activities. In their role as a key faculty leader, they will be expected to enhance Georgia State research and publication productivity by assisting in the recruitment of a diverse faculty mix of senior and mid-career strategic faculty hires; develop formal partnership agreements between Georgia State and leading global health organizations in Atlanta and around the world; renovate an existing physical space for the purpose of interdisciplinary collaboration for GSU faculty, students and collaborators; and, contribute to public health science in reducing the projected global burden of non-communicable diseases in keeping with Target 3.4 of the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through a combination of programs, research, and other interdisciplinary activities.
