Associate/Full Professor of Family and Community Influences on Education and Health, College of Education, The University of Texas at Austin

College/School/Unit: College of Education
Department: Kinesiology and Health Education
Posted: Sep 16, 2022
Apply By: Open until filled

Description

The College of Education (COE) is seeking a faculty member at the Associate or Full Professor level with expertise in the design, development, delivery, and/or the rigorous evaluation (e.g., single case design, randomized controlled trials, qualitative research) of psychosocial and/or academic programs focused on linguistically and culturally diverse children, adolescents and their families, and the study of contextual factors that may influence the impact of such programs on children and families. Competitive candidates will show a commitment to collaboration with historically excluded populations and complex, under-resourced service systems (e.g., schools, primary care clinics, child welfare, social services).

Scholarly emphases may include the role of family and community factors in promoting academic and/or psychosocial success, family literacy among emerging bilingual populations, family-school engagement, and community influences on education and/or psychosocial outcomes. The successful candidate will have an established record of success in (1) conducting high-quality applied research, (2) obtaining external funding, (3) disseminating scholarly, evidence-based information to multiple audiences, and (4) training and mentoring students, post-doctoral fellows, and early career faculty.

This is a College-wide search for an accomplished scholar who will have an appointment within one of our five departments: Curriculum & Instruction; Educational Leadership & Policy; Educational Psychology; Kinesiology & Health Education; and Special Education. A secondary appointment in at least one other of these departments is possible. There will also be opportunities for research collaborations between members of the College, the Dell Medical School, the UT School of Public Health, and other schools and colleges.

As a collaborative group of faculty and staff in the College, we work together with our students and members of our local and state community to promote the shared values of equity, excellence, innovation, empowerment, community focus, and endeavors to bridge research and practice. We view inclusiveness and excellence as interconnected in our work. We are agents of change committed to transforming education and behavioral health research, practice, and policy to ensure the thriving of children, families, schools, and communities.

In our efforts to align our College to address the most pressing challenges in the fields of education and health, we have launched a new strategic vision known as Reimagine Education (see https://education.utexas.edu/about/office-dean/reimagine-education). In advancing this effort, we have organized our academic and research aspirations around three Signature Impact Areas: Advancing Equity and Eliminating Disparities in Health and Education, Attending to Place and Context, and Thriving through Transitions. We seek candidates who are supportive of our collective aspirations and focused on work within one or more of our Signature Impact Areas.

Success in this position will be supported by a competitive start-up package, by compensation appropriate to rank and experience, and by the provision of ongoing access to research resources. Hiring is contingent upon funding.
