NYU School of Global Public Health — Assistant Professor, Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences

The School of Global Public Health (GPH) of New York University (NYU) is seeking applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS). GPH seeks candidates of outstanding potential and scholarship who can contribute to the academic and research enterprise of GPH.

The successful candidate will have clearly demonstrated an interest in and commitment to optimization of behavioral and/or biobehavioral interventions, and will show tremendous promise for success in building a research program related to behavioral and/or biobehavioral approaches to health promotion or disease prevention, broadly defined, in any area of public health. This individual’s research program will involve either (1) advancement of intervention optimization methods (e.g. methods for decision-making based on optimization trial results; design of optimization trials), or (2) sophisticated applications of intervention optimization methods, specifically the multiphase optimization strategy (MOST), in public health. The successful candidate will be expected to play a key role in the Center for Advancement and Dissemination of Intervention Optimization (https://cadio.org), a GPH center that aims to promote and support intervention optimization by (a) creating an intellectual community of interested faculty at NYU and throughout the Tri-State area, and (b) providing resources related to optimization methods and practice. The candidate will have the opportunity to connect with various other GPH centers, including (but not limited to) the Global Center for Implementation Science and the Center for Drug Use and HIV Research.
