Research or scholarship responsibilities may include Primary focus on adolescent or young adult health research relevant to HIV prevention or care, which may interface with related domains of STIs, sexual/gender minority youth, substance use, mental health, health disparities, parent-teen relationships, community-engaged research, and similar areas. Expectations will be to develop and lead a research program funded by career development and/or independent research funding. It is anticipated that this faculty member will be an active participant in the Penn CFAR research community, which provides extensive services and activities geared to advance HIV/AIDS research.
