Position Description: We seek established scientists who will join our growing cadre of researchers in Sociology, Health Promotion, Epidemiology/Biostatistics, Community Psychology, and Clinical Psychology. Successful candidates will also contribute to graduate and undergraduate education in one or more of these areas with opportunities to build on exciting interdisciplinary offerings across units (e.g., the new MPH/PhD in Community Psychology).

The successful candidate will be hired at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor with preference given to those seeking a primary appointment in the School of Public Health or in the Department of Sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences (with possibility of a secondary dual appointment in Psychology, Sociology, or the School of Public Health). Qualified applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. or comparable terminal doctoral degree in the social and behavioral sciences and expected to engage in interdisciplinary research with faculty and students across the Georgia State community. Successful candidates will be expected to build on existing strengths in social and behavioral and public health research, with an emphasis in one or more of the following areas: • Population-based and community- based participatory research with one or more populations (e.g., racial/ethnic, sexual minorities, immigrants, refugees, LGBT youth, youth with chronic illness, youth exposed to trauma), potentially including comparative or cross-cultural work; • Cross-cutting areas of health disparities in youth (e.g., intersection of health and educational outcomes, mental and physical health, health related quality of life, and substance use); • Multi-level research and/or intervention studies to examine how environmental factors contribute to health outcomes in urban youth; or • Translational research on dissemination and implementation of existing or new interventions for adolescents across different racial- ethnic, sexual, or gender minority populations.

Qualifications: The successful candidate will have an outstanding record of research achievement, including a strong record of external research funding. The individual will be expected to maintain a productive, funded research program in relevant areas, and will be expected to demonstrate graduate and undergraduate instructional effectiveness with a diverse student body.

Organization Description: As part of its Next Generation Initiative on Resilient Youth (ResY), Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA, anticipates hiring one tenure-track faculty member whose research program focuses on health disparities among urban youth to begin in Fall 2019.
