We are currently seeking to fill an adjunct faculty position to teach our Global Health Policy Studies course for the fall term.
Global Health Policy Studies examines the structures that influence global health. The course critically examines and contextualizes the pressing issues in global health: topics may include nutrition and food security; women’s health issues; infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria; changes in epidemiology as a result of economic and environmental factors; access to water and water rights; and air quality. The course surveys the government organizations and international bodies, such as the World Health Organization, that are the major actors in the field, as well as the large health nonprofits which have proliferated in recent years and measures the impact of these organizations.
This seminar-style class meets once per week for three hours from the first week in September through the second week of December in our classroom.
We seek an able scholar with a terminal degree in hand or near completion in a relevant academic discipline. Applicants should have college-level teaching experience. Since our courses strive to use DC as the students' classroom, applicants should also have access to relevant individuals and organizations for guest speakers and site visits.
