Faculty Position in Global Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene, North Carolina State University

Deadline: May 01 2017

http://jobs.ncsu.edu/postings/60159

Updated: April 04 2017

As part of the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, North Carolina (NC) State University is building a research cluster focused on Global Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (Global WaSH). We are in the process of hiring innovative and transformative academic leaders whose scholarship will advance NC State’s position as a national leader in multidisciplinary water and environmental research, education, and outreach that can be harnessed to develop scalable water and sanitation solutions in underserved areas around the world.

We seek a social scientist whose work will contribute to interdisciplinary collaborations and is anchored in underserved communities. Training in either qualitative or quantitative methodologies would be welcome as would a disciplinary background in fields such as anthropology, environmental sciences, history, international development, policy science, and public health. Specific research approaches may include, but are not limited to, environmental justice/equity design and evaluation of behavioral and community interventions, and the science and technology of water provision or human waste management. Geographic expertise is expected in the Global South, with some preference for regions with the greatest needs in the WaSH domain. Rank is open with some preference for candidates positioned to take on leadership roles within the cluster.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a cover letter, and contact information for three references. Applicants should also submit a vision statement that discusses how the applicant would fit and work within the Global WaSH cluster, and that identifies potential home departments in the College of Natural Resources or the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. Materials for consideration will be accepted electronically via http://jobs.ncsu.edu/postings/60159. A comprehensive review of applications will begin on 1 May and continue until the positions are filled. Questions about the positions may be directed to Dr. Francis de los Reyes, fldelosr@ncsu.edu, (919) 515-7416.
