Job Title: Assistant/Associate Professor
Job Number: Log #20-001
Organization: Georgia State University
Posted: 6/21/2018
Type: Full-Time
Number of Openings: 1
Location: Atlanta,  GA    USA
Position Description: The successful candidate is expected to (1) engage in transdisciplinary research with faculty and students that brings together multiple areas and perspectives and thus bridges traditional scientific and structural barriers, and (2) study interpersonal violence primarily as it intersects with other health, behavioral, and social problems. Georgia State University is a national leader in graduating students from widely diverse backgrounds (racial, economic, nativity and nationality, sexual orientation, etc.). Thus, successful candidates will also be expected to contribute to graduate and undergraduate education with a diverse student body.

Successful candidates will be expected to work with well-established researchers with strong records of collaborative cross-disciplinary research on interpersonal violence, with an emphasis in one or more of the following areas. We are particularly interested in candidates who study these questions in diverse contexts or in diverse or vulnerable populations.

• Policy evaluation and “big data”: Scholars with expertise linking large administrative data sets to analyze broad trends in interpersonal violence and/or to determine economic/policy-based strategies to reduce violence and its related costs • Biobehavioral causes and/or outcomes: Scholars who integrate data from neuroscientific or biological domains with data from behavioral, cognitive, personality, and/or social measurement modalities to understand the causes and consequences of interpersonal violence across the lifespan • Prevention science: Scholars who develop and/or implement evidence-based prevention and intervention programs and policies

Qualifications: Qualified applicants should have a Ph.D. or comparable terminal doctoral degree in fields including, but not limited to, psychology (e.g., community, clinical, developmental), public health (e.g., health promotion, epidemiology), social work, criminal justice/criminology, public policy, or economics. We seek established scientists who will join and collaborate with our dynamic network of internationally recognized violence scholars. Each successful candidate will have an outstanding record of research achievement, including a strong record of external research funding, commensurate with experience. Successful candidates will be expected to maintain productive, funded research programs in relevant areas, and will be expected to demonstrate graduate and undergraduate instructional effectiveness with a diverse student body.
