Full Text of JOE Listing:
The University of Oklahoma is excited to initiate a projected multi-year cluster hire to expand expertise in cancer research on the Norman campus. Complementing recent growth at the Health Promotion Research Center at the University of Oklahoma’s Health Science Center (https://healthpromotionresearch.org/Faculty), this year we will be adding tenured or tenure-track faculty in Anthropology, Economics, and Social Work. Faculty will join the Cancer Prevention and Control Program at Stephenson Cancer Center and will be expected to work with faculty at both the Norman and Health Sciences Center campuses to develop funded research to improve cancer outcomes. We specifically seek researchers whose work centers on the social determinants of health (broadly defined) as well as the organization, delivery, and experience of cancer care.
The normal teaching load is 2/2. Course reductions are given in the first two years (so 1/2 or 2/1) and are envisioned as being additionally obtained by the successful hire based on their grants/funding. Contributions to undergraduate and graduate programs (PhD, Master’s in Data Analytics) are envisioned. Initial screening will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. First round Zoom interviews will follow the stated AEA/ASSA recommendations. Campus fly outs for second round interviews are envisioned. Applicants should upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, writing sample, teaching evaluations, and (arrange for) three letters of reference to Interfolio https://apply.interfolio.com/97719 . Salary and benefits are competitive. Grant driven summer support beyond the base salary is expected.
OKC/Norman is a lovely place to live. OU is a traditional ‘college town’ set within an affordable community that provides many social and recreational amenities, along with strong public schools. Most faculty live within 10-15 minutes of campus and within 20-30 minutes of the OKC airport and downtown amenities.
A background check is required for employment. The University of Oklahoma is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Protected veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
