Open Rank – Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor Tenure-Track or Tenured Research and Teaching Appointment
The Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy seeks a new faculty member specializing in the area of food and nutrition in the onset, prevention, or treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes.
This is a full-time, 12-month tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor. We seek applicants capable of conceptualizing and conducting high-impact, multi-disciplinary research and teaching across the widening spectrum of nutrition challenges present in the world today. The Friedman School is actively growing and recruiting faculty in many multidisciplinary areas, including the present position in obesity and diabetes; sustainable food systems and climate change; community interventions and behavior change; and computational methods and models for ‘big data’ in nutrition.
Candidates for this position will hold an MD, PhD, or equivalent doctoral degree and will have a recognized experience in research in nutrition and obesity and diabetes, with expertise in disciplines such as epidemiology, sociology, anthropology, behavior, human trials, novel technology, economics, and/or demography. Successful candidates will have demonstrated the ability to design, implement, and evaluate observational, interventional, behavioral, policy, and/or other population-based studies to investigate the impact of nutrition in the onset, prevention, or treatment of obesity or type 2 diabetes. Research that addresses global issues in diet and obesity and diabetes is preferred, but well-qualified applicants with a domestic or regional focus are encouraged to apply.
