This position and others being added across the university (see www.northeastern.edu/diversity) will greatly expand our capacity to teach and to conduct cutting edge research about the impacts of oppression and inequalities across the life span. The tenure home of this position is in the Department of Health Sciences, with likelihood of a joint appointment in another suitable department.

We seek candidates whose work reflects the importance of population diversity and who value different points of view in teaching and research collaborations. Candidates for the rank of Associate Professor should have a strong track record of scholarship commensurate with rank and teaching, including peer-reviewed publications and a demonstrated ability to secure external funding for research.
