As one of the leading land-grant institutions in the nation, North Carolina State University is proud to announce its Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, a cluster hire program that marks the first major initiative of the University’s 2011-2020 strategic plan, “The Pathway to the Future.” Starting in 2012, NC State will hire thirty-eight faculty members in twelve research areas or “clusters” to promote interdisciplinary scholarship and the development of innovative curricula in emerging areas of strategic strength. The NC State Center for Human Health and the Environment (CHHE) invites applications for three faculty positions in a research cluster in Environmental Health Science. The goal of CHHE is to stimulate interdisciplinary research aimed at understanding how human health, at both the individual and population level, is impacted by environmental factors and to utilize this understanding to prevent or reduce the adverse impacts of these factors on human health (go.ncsu.edu/chhe). This tenured/tenure track faculty cluster hire in Environmental Health Science aims to recruit: i) an Environmental Epidemiologist to evaluate the effects of environmental stressors on human populations; ii) an Environmental Exposure Scientist to evaluate the relationships between exposure and human health; and iii) an Epigenome Scientist to elucidate the relationships among environmental stressors and the epigenome. Faculty rank (assistant, associate or professor) is contingent upon qualifications and experience. Preference will be given to candidates with a PhD, MD, DVM, or equivalent degree who have an established and externally funded research program. However, exceptional junior candidates will be considered. The successful candidates are expected to participate in collaborative, multi?investigator research and training initiatives that includes NC State biologists, toxicologists, geneticists, bioinformaticists, statisticians, chemists and engineers to maintain a high impact program in environmental health science. The departmental affiliation of the successful candidate will be based on specifics of the proposed research program and expertise. To apply, please visit http://jobs.ncsu.edu/postings/7119 to complete the Applicant Profile. Applications should include curriculum vitae, letter of intent describing research interests/program, and the names and addresses of three references the committee may contact.
