Auburn University is advertising for an Associate/Assistant Professor position in Health disparities. This is part of an exciting new cluster-hire initiative that will support six new faculty positions in Psychology (this position), Human Development and Family Studies, Nutrition, Health Outcomes and Policy, Kinesiology and Nursing. The overarching goal of the initiative is to develop an interdisciplinary group of independent research programs and a central resource for those interested in health disparities across ten colleges and schools across campus.
The specific area is open but we would welcome applications from investigators with interests in disparities such as those associated with poverty, ethnic status, rural residency, or diagnostic category. Pertinent to those on this list, possible research interests could include characterization of or interventions directed at developmental or intellectual disabilities in rural or ethnic communities in which, in Alabama, these disorders are woefully underdiagnosed. Other possibilities might be educational practices, telehealth, occupational safety and health, substance abuse, or other possibilities.
