Assistant or Associate Professor, Addiction Research, University of Southern California
The University of Southern California's Department of Preventive Medicine invites applications for a research-track faculty position at the rank of assistant or associate professor. We seek a faculty member with an active program of research focused on substance addiction to serve as associate director of the USC Health, Emotion and Addiction Laboratory (USC-HEAL; heal.usc.edu), a multidisciplinary team of scholars, students, and staff that studies biobehavioral and psychosocial determinants of addiction. We are interested in outstanding applicants from all areas of human addiction research, although, we especially encourage applications from those whose research can complement existing strengths in tobacco use, personality/emotion and addiction, comorbidity of psychiatric and substance use disorders, and addiction psychopharmacology. Expectations include obtaining external funding, fostering growth of an emergent interdisciplinary program in addiction science at USC, mentoring postdoctoral, doctoral, masters, and undergraduate level research trainees, and teaching undergraduate or graduate courses. The candidate will be recruited to join the Division of Health Behavior Research within the Department of Preventive Medicine. This multi-disciplinary department of behavioral scientists, epidemiologists, environmental health scientists, and biostatisticians has a long history of conducting innovative externally-funded research and currently holds active research centers on tobacco, obesity, and other public health issues. Please submit letter of intent, curriculum vitae, description of research program, three representative reprints, and three letters of reference to: Adam Leventhal, Ph.D., Director of USC-HEAL, firstname.lastname@example.org. We will begin reviewing applications on November 6, 2013, and continue until the position is filled.
USC values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment. Woman and men, and members of all racial and ethnic groups are encouraged to apply.
