The focus of this position is on the design and execution of large-scale observational and experimental research on the individual and societal causes, consequences, and prevention of firearm violence and other forms of violence. The In Residence title at the University of California is an Academic Senate title assigned to academically qualified individuals who engage in teaching, research or other creative work, and University and public service to the same extent and at the same level of performance as those holding corresponding titles in the Professor series in the same department.

Qualifications: Candidates must possess a doctoral degree in epidemiology, medicine, public health, or the related social sciences. There must be an established record of independent and collaborative research on violence, including firearm violence. There must be recent peer-reviewed publications and demonstrated experience in the design via publication authorship, conduct, and reporting of large-scale observational and/or experimental studies. Some of this experience must be at the leadership level. Experience teaching at the undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral level is required. Additional training during a formal post- doctoral fellowship is preferred. Thorough knowledge and demonstrated ability to apply advanced epidemiologic and biostatistical methods for observational and experimental research are expected. Strong written and verbal communication abilities are required. Candidates must have demonstrated the ability to work cooperatively and collegiately in a diverse environment. Candidates must be able to pass a Department of Justice background check and work with highly sensitive data.
