This tenure-track faculty member will serve as Program Director to the Couple and Family Therapy (CFT) master’s program and join a dynamic department with additional programs in family science and maternal and child health. Candidates should show evidence and ability to: (1) lead the oversight and integration of all aspects of the CFT program, (2) conduct an externally funded research program, (3) teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, and (4) play a central role in developing the Department’s research and service initiatives with community partners.
An Assistant, Associate, or Full Research Professor position is available in the department. Successful candidates will teach, advise, and/or service responsibilities coming from the department. Applicants must demonstrate evidence of a sustainable and focused research program and a strong publication record. Candidates who complement ongoing areas of research (e.g., tobacco use, substance abuse, risk behaviors in emerging adults, cancer control, health disparities, impaired driving) or who have a high level of expertise in related skills or topics (e.g., social network analysis, instrument development, community interventions, health communication, health literacy), are particularly encouraged to apply.
Qualified candidates should possess a doctoral degree in biostatistics or statistics and submit a record of scholarly achievement in biostatistics or statistics that supports a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor rank. Candidates should demonstrate the potential to develop and conduct an independent research program in biostatistical methodology with direct application to public health issues. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise such as multilevel modeling, applied multivariate methods, and survey data analysis.
The Institute seeks applicants with research interests that span local, national, and international environmental health problems who can integrate with our existing faculty who have expertise in exposure assessment; air and water quality; infectious disease; built environment; and other areas. A successful candidate is expected to have external funding to support a significant portion of their salary with supplemental funding possible for teaching, advising, administrative, and/or service responsibilities within the School of Public Health.
