USC TCORS Assistant or Associate Professor

Faculty Position Opening in Tobacco Regulatory Science at the University of Southern California

The Department of Preventive Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) Keck School of Medicine invites applications for a research-track faculty position at the rank of assistant or associate professor. We seek a faculty member with expertise in behavioral or social science to join the USC Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science (USC-TCORS; tcors.usc.edu), a multidisciplinary team of faculty, students, and staff that conducts research to inform U.S. federal regulation of tobacco products. This faculty member will dedicate the majority of their research program to tobacco regulatory science; thus, a track record or strong interest in tobacco regulatory science is required. We are interested in outstanding applicants from all areas of tobacco regulatory science, although we especially encourage applications from those whose research can complement existing strengths in e-cigarette use, adolescent and young adult tobacco product use, health disparities and diversity science, statistical methods, social media analysis, the tobacco retail outlet setting, longitudinal behavioral epidemiology, and human laboratory behavioral pharmacology. Expectations include collaborating on and leading papers in the USC-TCORS, working on grant applications and obtaining external funding, mentoring postdoctoral, doctoral, masters, and undergraduate level research trainees, and teaching undergraduate or graduate courses. The candidate will be recruited to join the Division of Health Behavior Research within the Department of Preventive Medicine. This multi-disciplinary department of behavioral scientists, epidemiologists, environmental health scientists, and biostatisticians has a long history of conducting innovative externally-funded research and currently holds active research centers on tobacco, obesity, cancer genetic epidemiology, air pollution, and other public health issues. The candidate will also become a member of the Institute for Prevention Research (IPR) and the Institute for Addiction Science (IAS)—a multi- school initiative within USC aimed to support transdisciplinary addiction research and education (ias.usc.edu)—and will be encouraged to develop collaborations with IAS members in other departments within the Keck School of Medicine and other schools across the university.


To apply, please submit a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, description of research program, three representative reprints, and three letters of reference to: Lilit Aladadyan., Administrative Director of USC-TCORS, aladadya@med.usc.edu. We will begin reviewing applications immediately and continue until the position is filled.


The University of Southern California strongly values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment. Women and men, and members of all racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
