The Southwest Health Equity Research Collaborative (SHERC), a dynamic, new Research Center for Minority Institutions at Northern Arizona University funded by NIMHD, seeks two Health Services Researchers, Health Economists, Biostatisticians or Epidemiologists to join our expanding team. The long-term goal of SHERC is to eliminate health disparities among diverse populations of the southwestern United States by focusing on building research capacity in biomedical, clinical and behavioral sciences at NAU. We are uniquely positioned to do this at NAU, given our longstanding commitment to serving underrepresented students and citizens in our region, our strong working relationships with tribal, Latinx, and rural communities, and our dedication to conduct health equity research that directly improves the lives of the people we serve.
SHERC is housed in the Center for Health Equity Research in the College of Health and Human Services at NAU. We seek applicants for a full-time (9-month) tenure-track or tenured research and teaching faculty position at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level to start in the Fall of 2020. The successful candidate will have demonstrated experience leading multi-year population health research projects and working as part of a multidisciplinary team. Scholarly work should reflect best practices regarding statistical analysis and reporting, study design, study recruitment and other indices of optimal and transparent research.
The successful candidate will:
1) maintain an independent research program that is supported by external funding and produce peer reviewed science in the field of public health;
2) contribute to the teaching mission of the CHHS including the teaching and mentoring of undergraduate, MPH, and PhD students as well as post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty; and
3) perform service for the department, center, college, university and profession.
Workload will likely be distributed initially as 70% Research, 20% Teaching and 10% Service with the possibility of negotiation of responsibilities each year, depending on grant funding. Preference will be given to applicants with documented contributions to translational research and successful interdisciplinary collaboration.
We value diversity and seek individuals committed to collaborative, interdisciplinary, and community-engaged research. Researchers in all content areas are encouraged to apply. Areas of specific research growth in CHER and SHERC include cross cutting areas such as social determinants of health, behavioral and clinical health, and methodological and analytical strategies for community-based and multilevel interventions.
