Tenure Track Positions (Assistant/Associate Professor)
As part of its Next Generation Initiative focused on Interpersonal Violence Georgia State University anticipates hiring tenure-track faculty with research programs focused on interpersonal violence to begin in Fall 2019. In the heart of the largest and most racially/ethnically diverse metropolitan area in the Southeastern U.S. Georgia State University has committed to becoming a national leader in interpersonal violence research and prevention by facilitating scholarship with the goal to:
- Understand the causes and consequences of interpersonal violence and myriad health behavioral and social problems with which it intersects
- Emphasize the development refinement and evaluation of interventions to reduce or prevent the perpetration of interpersonal violence and ameliorate the impact of victimization
- Inform public policy risk reduction strategies and service provision by public and non-profit entities
As such we seek faculty with a transdisciplinary focus and a track record of studying interpersonal violence primarily as it intersects with other public health problems. Successful candidates will be hired at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor with a primary appointment in Departments/Colleges that best correspond to the candidates.
