The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences (CEHHS) at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, the state’s flagship research institution, seeks a scientist who can provide leadership and mentoring to faculty across the college in designing and implementing education and/or health-focused studies for the purpose of achieving external funding. A successful candidate will have strong methodological skills in intervention-type research, including theory-driven intervention development, study design, data collection, and quantitative analytic conceptualization. This role also requires superb grantsmanship skills, as evidenced by a history of funding as a lead principal investigator. This role will focus on supporting faculty in their pursuit of external funding, through providing individualized consultation to faculty in methodology and grantwriting. This position will work closely with the Associate Dean of Research and the Director of External Funding in CEHHS, and have a home department within CEHHS that most closely aligns with the candidate’s terminal degree and research area. The candidate will be expected to maintain a successfully funded research agenda, and develop collaborations with CEHHS. The candidate will support professional development activities on methodology and grantsmanship that are provided by CEHHS to faculty on campus. Finally, the University of Tennessee Knoxville is seeking candidates who have the ability to contribute in meaningful ways to the diversity and intercultural goals of the University, which includes having the ability to infuse those goals within research conceptualization and methodology used in external funding applications. This is a 12-month, tenure-track, highly-funded position.

Required Qualifications: Doctoral degree in an education- or health-related field; must qualify for the rank of associate or full professor in the home department in which the candidate would be based; at least 3 years of external funding in research/scholarship as the lead investigator; an extensive record of scholarship in education or health, in which leadership is demonstrated; strong knowledge of quantitative, experimental methods; and demonstrated commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.
