UCD Nutrition Department recruiting for Assistant Professor of Cooperative Extension - Nutrition and Health Equity

The Department of Nutrition, internationally recognized as a premier center of excellence in research, teaching, and extension, is seeking applications for a Professor of Cooperative Extension (CE) to join the faculty at the Assistant rank in the field of nutrition and community health equity. This is a full time, career-track position. Professors of CE have many of the same career opportunities and rights and privileges as faculty in the professorial ranks but do not have classroom teaching responsibilities, freeing them to do extension education and applied research with partners throughout California. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct original applied research resulting in information that can be applied toward nutrition and health equity at the family and community level with an emphasis on chronic disease risk reduction and community public health resilience, and to develop an extension education and outreach program that extends information to diverse clientele groups (e.g., individuals, families and communities) with emphasis on those at highest risk of food insecurity, diet-related chronic diseases and obesity, including under-represented groups.

Qualifications: Ph.D. or equivalent degree in nutrition or other closely related discipline is required. Post-doctoral or other experience is required. The successful candidate must have a record that documents productivity in research as evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Appointment Date: This position is available on or soon after January 1, 2023.

Applications: Applications should be submitted on-line at https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/JPF05048. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, publication list, a statement of research interests and goals, a summary or abstract of the Ph.D. dissertation, copies or links to 3-5 recent relevant publications, statement of contributions to diversity, equity and inclusion and contact information for three references. Additional inquiries should be directed to Dr. Elizabeth Prado (Recruitment Advisory Committee chair) elprado@ucdavis.edu . The position will remain open until filled. To ensure consideration, applications should be received by October 17, 2022.
