San Francisco State University is pleased to announce two faculty cluster hires to support key cross-discipline intellectual initiatives. Faculty members will provide scholarly leadership, including research, community engagement, and teaching through two clusters focused on 1) Big Data and Health and 2) Violence, Trauma, and Health. Click on the position of interest below to learn more details.
BIG DATA AND HEALTH
Advances in the accumulation and analysis of data about human behavior have led to breakthroughs in the understanding of human genetics and health informatics. Big data & health concerns itself with the possibilities for advancing human health, the underlying fundamental science, as well as the social consequences of the mining of various data elements. In this cluster we seek three positions:
• Health Economics, Department of Economics & Health Equity Institute (Open Rank)
• Human Genetics/Genomics, Department of Biology (Open Rank)
• Postdoctoral Fellow in Health Informatics, Health Equity Institute
VIOLENCE, TRAUMA, AND HEALTH
There is enormous scientific, social, and cultural interest in the impact of violence and trauma on individual and collective well-being. It is essential that we build deeper understandings of the complex relationships between violence, trauma, and health among individuals, families, communities, and societies at large. Moreover, we must encourage scholarship and discourse concerning the ways in which the ubiquity of violence and its traumatic effects in popular culture both reflect and refract lived experience. In this cluster we seek three positions:
• Neuromechanics, Department of Kinesiology & Health Equity Institute (Open Rank)
• Clinical Psychology, Department of Psychology (Open Rank)
• Film and Media, Cinema Department (Open Rank)
We welcome applications from the most innovative scholars in these areas, we are open to considering any area of specialization, approach, or research agenda, and inter/disciplinary training. Tenure/Tenure-Track positions at San Francisco State require the proper terminal degree. Appointments begin Fall 2015. Application deadlines vary by position.
