"The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing and UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center invite you to join the faculty of a nationally ranked School of Nursing and The UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, the only public comprehensive cancer center for the State and the people of North Carolina. This jointly funded initiative is made possible by UNC's University Cancer Research Fund, established by the North Carolina General Assembly to advance cancer research in North Carolina.

A major purpose of the Fund is to promote research across the broad continuum of cancer prevention and control by recruiting outstanding faculty to enhance and expand UNC-Chapel Hills excellence in these areas. UNC-Chapel Hill, the oldest and one of the best public universities, is a research-intensive university with both health sciences and academic disciplines on one campus. A large dynamic hospital system and relationships with clinical sites across the state provide extensive opportunities for cancer research, teaching, and practice.

The climate for interdisciplinary and health research collaborations is exceptional. Moreover, the geographic and demographic diversity, academic and cultural resources, and sheer beauty of North Carolina allow one to pursue both scholarly and personal life goals. The School of Nursing offers top-ranked baccalaureate, masters, doctoral and post-doctoral programs, including the Hillman Scholars Program, and houses a state-of-the-art Biobehavioral Laboratory, Education-Innovation-Simulation-Learning-Environment program, and Office of Research Support and Consultation.

The School offers NIH-funded pre- and post-doctoral fellowships in ""Interventions for Preventing and Managing Chronic Illness"". The Lineberger Cancer Center is one of 49 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, ranked exceptional by NCI, with two Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPORE) in Breast and in GI cancers. Conducts interdisciplinary cancer research through nine programs: cancer cell biology, immunology, molecular therapeutics, virology, cancer genetics, clinical research, breast cancer, cancer prevention and control, and cancer epidemiology with more than 300 researchers from more than 40 departments across campus. The University is also home to numerous interdisciplinary centers and institutes for research in such areas as genome sciences, health services research, comprehensive cancer care, child development, adolescent health, aging, alcohol studies, health promotion and disease prevention, health communication, and ethics." We are seeking applicants with a strong record of oncology related research and evidence of teaching and practice in oncology nursing.

Applications from scholars are welcome if they have established and competitive programs of research; advanced practice provider (NP or CNS) experience preferred. Areas of interest include but are not limited to survivorship, prevention and control, health services research, dissemination, and communication. Responsibilities include teaching and mentoring in the undergraduate, masters, or doctoral programs, maintaining an ongoing, funded program of research, and working collaboratively with colleagues from other disciplines within the School of Nursing, the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, and other Health Professional Schools.

VIEW JOBS 9/13/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-12-12T00:00 The Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering in the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina is seeking to hire a tenure track faculty member at the Assistant or Associate Professor level with expertise in microbiology or microbial process engineering. With this hire, the Department seeks to advance its well-established research and educational programs in environmental microbiology and to build public health resilience to climate and environmental change. Nearly two-thirds of the worlds population is expected to be living under water stressed conditions by 2025. Shifting rainfall patterns, increased hydrological variability, and rising temperatures will alter the geographic range of pathogens, undermine water security, and threaten the sustainability and security of food, energy, and water systems. Together, floods, extreme weather events, water scarcity and poor water quality will increase the spread of disease and become a growing factor in migration, civil unrest, and conflict at home and abroad. The successful candidate may work in a variety of areas: e.g., to characterize susceptible populations and microbial exposures, design effective interventions to reduce microbial risks, address water safety, infectious disease transmission, environmental or occupational exposures, design more resilient/distributed water treatment, and/or microbial methods for resource recovery. An interest in providing scholarly leadership in UNCs Water Institute is strongly preferred. The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary collaborative community of scholars at Gillings, within UNC, and across the North Carolina research triangle. Over the next several years, the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering (ESE) and Gillings School of Global Public Health, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill plan to hire several tenure track faculty members to address public health resilience to climate and environmental change. WHO lists climate change as the #1 threat to global health. Appropriately, climate change and public health protection are also central to all five pressing challenges identified in the National Academies (NRC) report on Environmental Engineering for the 21st Century. Climate change can contribute to droughts, floods, heat waves and extreme weather events, which in turn impact air pollution, access to safe drinking water, toxic releases, food and nutrition, infectious and non-communicable diseases, migration and conflict, and exacerbate health inequities. As environmental scientists and engineers located within the top public school of public health, ESE is ideally positioned to address these pressing challenges. The Department has 98 years of experience and over 2000 alumni designing effective solutions for public health protection. We have internationally recognized faculty in air pollution, climate change and health, global water policy, infectious disease and microbiology, systems engineering, environmental health and childrens health. We are home to UNCs Water Institute, Center on Financial Risk in Environmental Systems, the Institute for Environmental Health Solutions, and participate in UNCs strong university-wide environmental and climate change communities. Since its founding, the Gillings School of Global Public Health has been a consistent advocate for health equity locally and globally. This position's responsibilities will include the following: develop an independent program of research including sustainable external sources of support, seek interdisciplinary collaborations, teach at least two courses per year that address Departmental needs, advise graduate and undergraduate student research, and engage in Departmental and professional service activities commensurate with rank and experience. Qualifications include the following: first author publications in respected peer-reviewed journals, strong written and oral science communication skills for specialist and public audiences, cultural competence and commitment to inclusive excellence, depth of knowledge about environmental/public health microbiology, curiosity and interest in learning, critical analysis skills, interpersonal skills and leadership potential.The successful candidate must have a PhD in environmental health, biology, engineering, or a related field relevant to environmental sciences/engineering.
