Advanced Quantitative Statistics and Methodology Faculty Position

The College of Health and Human Sciences (HHS) and its Public Health Graduate Program is collaborating with the College of Liberal Arts (departments of Anthropology, Communication, Political Science, and Sociology) on a cluster hire of six tenure-track faculty to expand campus-wide expertise in social, behavioral, and health science statistics and methodology.

The cluster hire includes positions at the assistant and associate professor ranks and will take place over the course of three years with initial positions starting in fall 2016. Hires in the College of Health and Human Sciences (HHS) will have their home unit in one of the following: Department of Consumer Science, Department of Health and Kinesiology, School of Health Sciences, School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, Department of Human Development and Family Studies, School of Nursing, Department of Nutrition Science, Department of Psychological Sciences, or Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. Candidates for these positions are expected to contribute to the research and teaching missions of the units in which they affiliate and to collaborate with others within the cluster and across the University in interdisciplinary and extramurally funded research. Candidates will also be expected to contribute to an anticipated multi-college, shared graduate training platform, including a graduate certification program in advanced statistics and methodologies.

Three positions were filled in 2016 (one in the College of Liberal Arts and two in the College of Health and Human Sciences). Searches for the remaining positions are currently active.
