Department of Human Development - Tenure-Track Assistant, Associate or Full Professor
The College of Human Ecology is launching a faculty cohort hire to advance scholarship and practice addressing social justice, centering it as a critical area of expertise and strength throughout the college. This initiative is part of a comprehensive and collaborative college-wide effort to bring together a cohort of scholars who are committed to studying race, ethnicity, and culture, including the nature, persistence, and consequences of inequality.
The Department of Human Development (http://www.human.cornell.edu/hd/) seeks applicants for a tenure-track position at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level who broadly study the significance of race, ethnicity, and culture. Successful applicants will be part of a cross-college Department of Psychology. We are seeking candidates whose research and teaching interests will strengthen and complement the department's existing areas (development, perception & cognition, neuroscience, and social & personality). We encourage scholars interested in any of these areas, but we are particularly interested in building on themes of strategic interest to the college. These include childhood poverty, aging & health, structural inequalities in the law, and social justice and community-based participatory research.
