The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Arizona seeks to fill an Associate or Full Professor, tenure eligible position in environmental health social science. The desired candidate will be a senior human-environmental health scholar with a strong track record of grants and publications who can lead and contribute to interdisciplinary environmental health research at the University of Arizona. We are especially interested in scholars whose research connects to the social sciences and focuses on any of the following areas: the social/material determinants of health including health impacts of environmental change and disasters; health geographies; social dimensions of health; human adaptation to environmental stress including genetic and genomic approaches; influence of environmental and cultural change on the health of communities; emerging diseases; health equity; environmental disparities; health policy; and exposure to human-produced hazards (e.g., chemical or biological agents). Research foci at any scale – national/regional, community, or individual level are possible, including interests in analysis of large data sets or individual exposures. The University has a commitment to research, teaching, and outreach for diverse and underserved populations, especially Hispanic and Native American. The candidate is expected to support the Inclusive Excellence efforts of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
The successful candidate will be able to work across disciplines within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, as well as across Colleges, such as Public Health, Agriculture and Life Sciences, and Medicine. Campus research partners may include Institute of the Environment, Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, the Center for Border Health Disparities, the Global Health Institute, and many more. The candidate will be expected to build collaborations of social scientists and health researchers that will add to the University of Arizona’s significant level of investment in environmental health.
