    Public Health Director

    The Director of Public Health will provide strategic direction, re-imagine public health service

    delivery in the wake of COVID-19, and promote the health and well-being of the community

    with a lens toward health equity.

    Collaboration, humility, and an integrated team approach are essential in this role. The next

    Director of Public Health will ground their advice and decision-making in the latest scientific

    research and work with public health data and those communities most impacted by the

    decisions. They should be able to plan, implement, and evaluate strategies that are consistent

    with best practices and apply knowledge of research methodology to assess needs and inform

    program development and evaluation.

    Amherst has a diverse population and works closely with its two colleges and the University of

    Massachusetts in managing public health challenges. We want a team player who can build and

    foster collaborative relationships with our K-12 schools, higher education partners, neighboring

    communities, members of the BIPOC and immigrant communities, and people of all ages.

    We are seeking a skilled public health leader with a strong background in public health or related

    field. We want an expert communicator who can direct health related communication strategies

    through a variety of channels including website content, print materials, social media, LCD signs

    and other digital media. The Public Health Director should be eager to tackle new challenges and

    deliver innovative solutions that will make a meaningful impact on the residents of Amherst. We

    want you to embrace the vibrancy of our community with our diverse population and engaged

    members of the public and work to develop new strategies to promote healthy living and provide

    access to a full spectrum of public health services to all residents.

    The Town of Amherst seeks a workforce that reflects the diversity of its community, and strives

    toward racial equity and environmental sustainability.  All are encouraged to apply.  AA/EEO.
