Dean of the School of Public Health

Situated within Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS), the School of Public Health at Rutgers University invites applications and nominations for the position of Dean. The Dean of the School of Public Health (SPH) will play a key leadership role in advancing the mission, operations and service of the School within Rutgers University as well as the greater New Jersey region and beyond.

In July 2013, with the integration of University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and Rutgers, the School became the Rutgers School of Public Health. Accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), the School has 54 full-time faculty, 7 part-time faculty, 80 partner faculty (housed within a partner Rutgers school/unit), and 50 administrative staff. The SPH is being reorganized and enlarged substantially. A large number of the partner faculty will move into the SPH with the arrival of the new dean, as well-funded departments from three partner Rutgers schools/units move into the school. With programs on three campuses, across eight core departments and nine interdisciplinary institutes, centers, and programs, SPH enrolls 367 students in one of five degree programs.

Reporting to the Chancellor for Biomedical and Health Sciences, the Dean is the chief academic and administrative officer of the School of Health Related Professions, with primary responsibility for implementing the School’s mission. The Dean will have complete line responsibility for personnel, general administration and management, budget, academic, and development functions.
