Associate/Full Professor Tenure System

Position Summary

Michigan State University and the Department of Human Development and Family Studies is seeking an Associate Professor/Professor-Tenure System whose program of research focuses on reducing racial/ethnic disparities and increasing opportunities for system involved youth, and/or attention to factors that place youth at risk for systems involvement.

Michigan State University actively promotes a dynamic research and learning environment in which qualified individuals of differing perspectives, and cultural backgrounds pursue academic goals with mutual respect and shared inquiry.

The College of Social Science at Michigan State University has established interdisciplinary areas to extend our facultys' current expertise and serve the mission of the College of Social Science to transform the human experience and inspire leaders. One such area is focused on reducing racial/ethnic disparities and increasing access, equity, and opportunities for marginalized youth via attention to social determinants of health and disadvantage among youth involved in immigration, juvenile justice, child welfare, or other systems. This specific interdisciplinary area is comprised of three tenure-system positions including this one in Human Development and Family Studies (the other two are in the School of Criminal Justice and the School of Social Work). The interdisciplinary tenure-system position is expected to strengthen both the faculty member’s tenure home and the interdisciplinary area as a whole. Individual and shared infrastructure and startup support will be provided.

We seek a scholar whose program of research focuses on reducing racial/ethnic disparities and increasing access, equity, and opportunities for system-involved youth via community-based, culturally relevant approaches to promote equity within the juvenile justice, immigration, child welfare, or other similar systems, and/or attention to factors that place youth at risk for systems involvement (e.g. exposure to adverse life events such as trauma, poverty, or victimization). We are particularly interested in scholars whose work centers on reducing the disproportionate representation of youth of color in these systems, and/or addressing individual, family, and community factors associated with youth being involved in one or more systems. Successful candidates will expand our faculty’s current expertise in youth development and social justice and will bring their experience with community-engaged research methods to promote change in policy, programs, or practice for diverse system-involved youth and their families.

This is a 9-month tenure-system position beginning August 16, 2020. Salary for this position is negotiable and commensurate with qualifications and experience. Michigan State University offers an excellent selection of benefits; please see www.hr.msu.edu for more information. MSU is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. MSU is committed to achieving excellence through cultural diversity. The university actively encourages applications and/or nominations of women, persons of color, Veterans, and persons with disabilities.
