Attention planetary health superstars! We’re hiring a Manager to support building out a new and exciting portfolio to influence policy and advance a high-impact planetary health agenda. The Human and Planetary Health Manager is a new position, based at the Center of Innovation in Global Health with close ties to the Woods Institute and the Program for Disease Ecology, Health and the Environment. The Manager will direct large-scale planetary health initiatives under broad direction from leadership, to lead a new and exciting evidence-to-action lab, and support the creation of a strategic plan for Human and Planetary Health at Stanford.

The Center

Stanford’s Center for Innovation in Global Health is committed to increasing wellbeing, world-wide. With nearly 200 faculty fellows from all seven schools within the university, we share knowledge, equip leaders and build interdisciplinary teams to address urgent global health challenges and achieve health equity. We focus our research and educational programs in three main areas – 21st century leadership, human and planetary health, and global health equity – and we partner with local organizations around the world to ensure that Stanford’s commitment to excellence extends well beyond our campus.

The Opportunity

The concept of “human and planetary health” acknowledges that the health of human communities and the health of the planet are inextricably linked. The health of human communities depends on local ecosystems, but unprecedented anthropogenic pressures are damaging planetary systems profoundly. Critical threats include biodiversity loss, pollution, climate change, mismanagement of freshwater resources and the ocean systems. Marginalized communities and low and middle-income countries are least prepared and are suffering disproportionately.

The Human and Planetary Health Manager is a new position, based at the Center of Innovation in Global Health with close ties to the Woods Institute and the Program for Disease Ecology, Health and the Environment.
