About UMass Amherst
UMass Amherst, the Commonwealth's flagship campus, is a nationally-ranked public research university offering a full range of undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees. The University sits on nearly 1,450-acres in the scenic Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts and offers a rich cultural environment in a bucolic setting close to major urban centers. In addition, the University is part of the Five Colleges (including Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, and Smith College), which adds to the intellectual energy of the region.
The College of Nursing at the University of Massachusetts is committed to building a more diverse faculty, staff, and student body in a research-based environment as it responds to the diverse population and educational needs of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the nation. The College of Nursing has a large on-campus enrollment, and a well-developed distance education component. The College is committed to the inclusion of social determinants of health and social justice in our service, teaching, and scholarship.
The College of Nursing and Institute for Applied Life Sciences seek to appoint an Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor to a diverse and growing team of innovators and inventors, clinical researchers, engineers, and basic scientists working together within a state-of-the-art interdisciplinary research institute. Applicants must demonstrate working knowledge of team science, nursing ethics, nursing theory, and the state of the discipline.
Candidates must demonstrate a strong commitment to the creation of a university culture that promotes and values diversity and a spirit of inclusion. Preference will be given to candidates who have a track record of involvement in nurse-led innovation, and who can articulate plans for an externally-fundable program of research compatible with the unique intellectual and physical resources of the Institute for Applied Life Sciences, such as the use of core facilities and collaboratory spaces. Reporting jointly to the Dean of the College of Nursing and the Director of the Institute, the faculty member will engage in the scholarship of discovery, have the opportunity to teach nurses of the future, and participate in the development, implementation, and evaluation of educational programming in the College of Nursing. They will work with the College of Nursing faculty and other departments or centers on campus to promote opportunities for inter-professional research and education.
The successful candidate may be expected to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses, supervise graduate students, contribute significantly to the advancement of nursing discovery, establish a vibrant, independent research program, and play an active role in community and academic service activities in the Colleges of Nursing as well as in the wider University.
