The UNLV School of Allied Health Sciences is seeking two full-time tenure-track faculty at the Assistant or Associate Professor ranks for the Health Disparities Research Initiative [R0112274]. The initiative spans several schools and colleges at the University and is designed to foster interdisciplinary research and collaboration in health disparities research.
The faculty members will conduct a program of research related to health disparities. The university-wide health disparities research initiative will increase the impact of research on health disparities at local, state and national levels, and strive to achieve targeted metrics including external federal grant funding for a health disparities research program. The faculty members also will collaborate with other faculty in the university-wide health disparities research program at UNLV.
These faculty members will promote health equity by facilitating collaborative research, education, and training opportunities in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, social science and health policy disciplines addressing racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, gender, sexual gender minorities (SGM), and other disparities in health and healthcare. In particular, we would be interested in hiring faculty who conduct health disparities research related to neurodegenerative diseases, although this is not a requirement for the position that will integrate into existing strengths at UNLV in Las Vegas.
