Cornell is a community of scholars, known for intellectual rigor and engaged in deep and broad research, teaching tomorrow's thought leaders to think otherwise, care for others, and create and disseminate knowledge with a public purpose.

The Division of Nutritional Sciences is seeking candidates for the H.E. Babcock Professorship of Food & Nutrition Economics and Policy at Cornell University. Candidates for this professorship should be outstanding research scientists with recognized scholarly reputation and with experience in interdisciplinary research at the interface of food systems, nutrition, human health and public policy. Qualifications of the candidate should be consistent with a tenured appointment at the level of full or associate professor, with a Ph.D. degree in economics, agricultural economics, or a related field; demonstrated research excellence in an area of applied economics related to food and nutrition problems; and experience teaching at the undergraduate and/or graduate level. Research excellence should be demonstrated by a substantial record of publication in books and recognized journals in the field and a history of externally funded research support. Scholarship related to food, diet, nutrition and human health, in the broadest sense, from national and international perspectives, should be central to the candidate's research program.

The Division of Nutritional Sciences is a broadly based interdisciplinary unit that integrates theories and methods from across many academic disciplines to understand the complex relationships among biology, nutrition, food systems and lifestyle patterns; social and institutional environments; and governmental policies in human health. The H.E. Babcock Professorship is a key appointment because of the relationship of economic factors and public policies to the nutrition and health of human populations. The Babcock Professor has potential to develop collaborations with faculty who have broad interests in basic and applied aspects of food and nutrition. Participation in the graduate and undergraduate teaching programs of the Division is expected.

Although the primary appointment and responsibilities of the H.E. Babcock Professor will be in the Division of Nutritional Sciences, he/she will have a joint appointment in one of the internationally recognized faculties in economics at Cornell including Agriculture and Life Sciences, Human Ecology, Arts and Sciences, the School of Industrial and Labor Relations, and the Johnson Graduate School of Management. The Babcock Professor is expected to mentor graduate students associated with these fields.

The appointee will:
* Initiate a vigorous, externally funded research program;
* Maintain a high level of scholarly activity;
* Train graduate students;
* Forge professional relationships within the Division of Nutritional Sciences and other academic units on campus;
* Participate in the Division of Nutritional Sciences' graduate and undergraduate teaching programs

Academic Rank and Compensation: Associate or Full Professor with 9-month appointment; tenured or tenure-track. Initial appointment will be for a 5-year term pending granting of tenure. Position is designated 50% research, 50% teaching/instruction. Salary level and title will depend on experience and expertise and will be competitive with comparable positions at peer universities.

Qualifications/Requirements:
* Ph.D. degree in economics, agricultural economics or a related field;
* Demonstrated research excellence in an area of applied economics related to food and nutrition problems;
* Experience teaching at the undergraduate and/or graduate level;
* Research excellence should be demonstrated by a substantial record of publication in books and recognized journals in the field, as well as a history of externally funded research support;
* Scholarship related to food, diet, nutrition, and human health, in the broadest sense, from national and international perspectives, should be central to the candidate's research program.
