KENT STATE UNIVERSITY
SCHOOL OF FAMILY AND CONSUMER STUDIES
TENURE-TRACK FACULTY POSITION IN HUMAN DEVELOPMENT AND FAMILY STUDIES
The Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) program area within the newly formed College of Education, Health, and Human Services at Kent State University seeks applicants for a nine-month, full-time, tenure-track position to begin August 17, 2008. Although we primarily intend to hire at the Assistant Professor level, candidates at all levels will be considered. We are especially interested in candidates who complement our existing focus in life-span development and aging, and whose teaching and research interests fall in one or both of the following areas: (1) The design of programs and policies in the human services sector to support people of all ages, especially the aged; or (2) The impact of cultural diversity on human development and family life, with an emphasis on the later years.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to our vibrant concentrations and interdisciplinary certificate programs in gerontology at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. A doctoral degree is required and teaching experience is preferred. The HDFS program area has outstanding teaching and research resources, and we maintain productive interdisciplinary relationships within diverse health and human services settings. Excellent support for both teaching and research activities is available at KSU.
Responsibilities include teaching at both graduate and undergraduate level; advising students; supervising student research; and developing a strong program of empirical research. Our faculty is committed to excellence in teaching and research, as well as to scholarly engagement outside the University.
Screening of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. To apply: complete an online application form at http://jobs.kent.edu, answer any supplemental questions, and copy/past or upload a vita and statement of teaching and research interests in MS Word or Adobe Acrobat (PDF).
