The candidate will not be engaging in clinical activities.

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include conducting computer vision-based investigations of patterns of nonverbal communications and outward expressions of emotion, such as facial expressions, body actions, oral-motor behavior; and studies integrating multiple data types, including video, language, and neuroimaging data. Research should focus on mental health conditions including autism and the development of rigorous new analytic methods. Additional responsibilities may include developing a research training program focused on using engineering methodologies to understand heterogeneity of mental health condition phenotypes, underlying neural processes, and genomic architecture.

Vision

 

As engines of knowledge and new ideas, universities have the unique potential to define the future rather than be defined by it; to pioneer change rather than merely manage it. To do so requires a plan both visionary and pragmatic. The Penn Compact 2022 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities. 

 

Penn’s fundamental priorities — increasing access, integrating knowledge and engaging locally, nationally and globally — are supported by the three core values that make us uniquely Penn: inclusion, innovation, and impact. 

 

Learn about the signature initiatives of the Penn Compact 2022:  

 

Diversity

Penn adheres to a policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected class.
