Auburn University is launching 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 welcome applications from people in all aspects of substance abuse and psychopharmacology, including human studies and experimental models.
We anticipate a diverse range of research approaches across the initiative, including large-scale population-based studies, small- or large-scale interventions, or laboratory based approaches using experimental animal models. The key element is a record aimed at characterizing, understanding, or alleviating disparities in health outcomes associated with income, ethnicity, sex, sexual identify, age, disability, geographic location, or other inequities.
Information about the department and the initiative can be found at http://www.cla.auburn.edu/psychology/health-disparities/
Please forward to interested individuals or relevant lists.
I would be happy to answer any questions about this position.
