Faculty Positions: Assistant, Associate or Full Professor Nutrition and Health Inequalities Cluster Hire

The Division of Nutritional Sciences at Cornell University invites applications for three 9-month, full-salaried, tenured/tenure-track positions including two positions at the rank of assistant, associate or full professor and one position at the rank of associate or full professor. We seek candidates with demonstrated research excellence in nutrition and health inequalities with a focus in maternal and child nutrition, obesity, chronic disease, application of sociological, cultural and behavioral theory in nutrition interventions and evaluation, food insecurity, and/or other areas. Candidates may have disciplinary expertise in public health nutrition, community nutrition, nutrition intervention and policy, sociology, social psychology, cultural anthropology or a related field. Scholarship related to nutrition and health inequalities, in the broadest sense, in the context of U.S. community or public health settings should be central to the candidate's research interests. The qualifications of the candidate will determine the rank of the tenured/tenure-track appointment. Candidates are expected to be leaders in their disciplines and interested in advancing the understanding of the connection between nutrition and health inequalities. Commensurate with rank, research excellence should be demonstrated by an active, externally funded research program as well as by a substantial record of publication in recognized peer-reviewed journals. The successful candidate will teach in the Division’s undergraduate and/or graduate program, bring unique expertise and perspectives to the Cornell curriculum, and mentor graduate students within and outside the Division of Nutritional Sciences.
