Tenure-Track Position - Gerontology - Aging and Health

 The Department of Human Development and Family Science in the Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics at Syracuse University is seeking applicants for a tenure-track position in the field of gerontology with a specialization in aging and health.

Preference will be given to candidates already serving as an assistant or associate professor who apply multidisciplinary approaches, such as bio-psychological or bio-social models, to the study of human development over the second half of life. Post-doctoral scholars are welcome to apply.

 Successful candidates cover this issue within the broader family, social/socioeconomic, community, and cultural contexts; and have the potential to achieve a strong record of publication and establish a program of funded research; and engage in high-quality teaching. Candidates whose research, teaching, or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education are particularly encouraged to apply.

This recruitment is part of an ambitious Invest Syracuse Cluster Hire Initiative in the broad area of Aging, Health, and Neuroscience. As an integral part of this investment, Syracuse University will recruit multiple candidates for faculty positions for a research cluster in the focus area of aging and health. Faculty hired into these positions will build on our existing strengths in the focus area and will participate in an organized research cluster that spans multiple departments in Falk College, Maxwell School, College of Arts and Sciences, and College of Engineering and Computer Science. The successful candidate will have an affiliation with the Aging Studies Institute.

Priority consideration given to applications received by January 15, 2021.
