Description

The Department of Health Behavior, Society, and Policy (HBSP) at the Rutgers School of Public Health has multiple open-rank, tenure-track positions for faculty members with expertise in health systems and policy, broadly construed. The school is particularly interested in hiring scholars with expertise in aging and mental health (e.g., dementia, depression); or end-of-life care (e.g., palliative care, hospice, polypharmacy, medically-assisted dying). An attractive recruitment package will include a competitive salary and start-up funds.

Individuals interested in collaborating with the Gluck lab on studies of aging, brain health, and Alzheimer’s disease in African-Americans from a public-health perspective that would mesh with the lab’s cognitive neuroscience research are especially encouraged to apply. For more information, see http://jobs.rutgers.edu/postings/81758 for more information, or contact the department chair, Paul Duberstein, paul.duberstein@rutgers.edu, and cc Dr. Gluck.

Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, is an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer.
