Cluster Hire in Innovative Methods
The Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) and the Colleges of Education, Health and Human Development, and the Liberal Arts announce 3-4 open rank, tenure track positions aimed at building on Penn State’s existing strengths in innovative and interdisciplinary social science research. We seek colleagues with exceptional records of interdisciplinary collaborative research whose work focuses on the development or application of novel research methodologies, including research design, measurement, data collection, and data analysis. Penn State has substantial capacity in many domains pertaining to research methods, such as quantitative analysis of human development and of demographic and social change, design, implementation and evaluation of education and preventive intervention programs, survey methods, and social network and spatial analysis. Penn State faculty are also engaged in interdisciplinary collaborations to develop new methods in such areas as the integration of biomarker and behavioral data, analysis of neuro-imaging data, and person-intensive, dynamic, and ambulatory research design, data collection, and analysis.
To capitalize on these strengths and foster new synergies, we seek candidates with strong publication and external funding histories along with demonstrated teaching and graduate mentorship proficiency. Preference will be given to candidates with collaboration and leadership potential in one or more substantive areas of strength in the social and behavioral sciences at Penn State, including: (1) social and demographic change, (2) biological bases of behavior, health and development, and/or (3) prevention, intervention, and education programming for promoting development and well-being in children, youth and families. Successful candidates will join the faculty of the department within the Colleges of Education, Health and Human Development, or the Liberal Arts that provides the best fit to their research and teaching interests. We anticipate cross departmental and cross college appointments.
Review of applications and nominations will begin immediately and will be accepted until the positions are filled. Women and members of under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply. Penn State is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity and the diversity of its workforce.To apply, please send a cover letter describing research interests and experiences, curriculum vitae, names of three references and supporting materials (e.g., reprints, preprints).
