The successful applicant will apply a life course perspective in pursuing innovative research addressing child health. Scholarship will be evidenced by contributions to the scientific literature and increasing recognition in the candidate’s field of interest. The selected individual will be encouraged to build on the existing strength of the faculty, Centers, and initiatives within the Department and, as appropriate, work with faculty across the School and the University while building an independent research portfolio. New faculty members are expected to become fully integrated into the department’s graduate education and student mentoring activities. Departmental resources and faculty mentorship will support development of an externally funded independent research program. A doctoral degree in public health, psychology, social science, medicine, demography, or related fields is required. Rank will be commensurate with experience.
The successful applicant, consistent with the mission of the Department, will establish an externally funded research program, participate in the educational program and contribute to the life of the School and the University.
