The T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics (SSFD) at Arizona State University (ASU) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Family and Human Development to start in August of 2023. Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent in Family and Human Development or a related discipline by the time of appointment. This application is open to any area of expertise in Family and Human Development with preference given to those who build on strengths of the program, including childhood and adolescent development; culture, ethnicity, and race; historically marginalized children, youth, and families; family systems; and quantitative methods. We also welcome applicants with research interests that grow our program including infancy, aging, queer youth, intersectionality, social justice, prevention science, big data, and mixed methods approaches. The School values cultural and intellectual diversity, and continually strives to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment. We are especially interested in applicants who can strengthen the diversity of our academic community.


ASU (recently named a Hispanic Serving Institution) works to develop an inclusive and thriving community that reflects the sociodemographic diversity of our state and nation. SSFD is home to a vibrant, interdisciplinary community of over 60 teaching, research, and clinical faculty members serving undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students in Family and Human Development and Sociology. The Family and Human Development PhD program is ranked 6th overall in North America and 2nd in the area of Adolescence and Young Adulthood. Doctoral students are trained to think critically and to consider a wide range of theoretical perspectives and innovative research methods, with emphasis given to developing quantitative and qualitative skills. The faculty contribute to many university initiatives, including the Child Development Lab, Children’s Equity Project, Global Center for Applied Health Research, Latino Resilience Enterprise, Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center, SSFD Methods Group, and Substance Abuse Translational Network. Further information on the School’s mission, programs, and collaborations can be found at: SSFD Assistant Professor Search.


Successful applicants must demonstrate the ability to contribute to the core mission of the School in research, teaching, and service. The candidate will develop a vigorous research program with demonstrated potential for extramural funding and an active agenda of peer-reviewed publications. Although the substantive area is open, the candidate’s qualifications will enable teaching courses in theories, research methods, or statistics. The candidate will also mentor undergraduate and graduate students, contribute to diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, participate in service to the university and profession, and support the growth of the Family and Human Development program.
