The Rutgers University School of Social Work is currently seeking a non-tenure track research faculty member at the assistant professor rank to join in the continued expansion of the School's Center for Prevention Science. This is a 12-month New Brunswick based position subject to contractual renewals. Salary is commensurate with experience.
We seek highly motivated and productive scholars, and entrepreneurial and innovative thinkers, who have a strong commitment to research. Successful candidates will be interested in inter- and transdisciplinary research that advances the reputation of the Center and School.
We are particularly interested in scholars who can advance research agendas in substance misuse prevention, community organizing, and youth empowerment. All NTT faculty members are expected to engage in scholarly/professional dissemination and service activities in accordance with their rank.
The successful candidate will work at the Center for Prevention Science at the Rutgers School of Social Work. The Center strives to build the capacity of community-based organizations to create changes in public policy or environmental conditions that cause social and health disparities. This mission is accomplished through a collaborative approach that focuses on transdisciplinary research, education, and community engagement.
Outside the School, there are rich opportunities for collaboration with other professional schools at Rutgers, including the School of Public Health, the School of Communication and Information (with which a new initiative in digital innovation in social work is underway), the School of Management and Labor Relations, the School of Criminal Justice, the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research, and the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, to name but a few.
