The Arizona State University (ASU) College of Nursing and Health Innovation (CONHI) invites applications for three tenured/tenure track faculty positions in aging. Two positions are at the assistant/associate level and one is at the associate/full. We are seeking applicants working in a variety of areas of aging including health promotion and disease prevention, family caregiving, care coordination, end of life/palliative care, Alzheimer’s and dementia, health disparities, and age-friendly environments.

Applicants must have an earned, research-focused doctorate degree in nursing or another health-related field (i.e., community health, exercise science/physical activity, nutrition, public health, integrative health, preventive medicine, psychology, or other related field). Applicants must also have a record of scholarly productivity, extramural funding or a strong potential for extramural funding, and teaching/mentoring experience as appropriate to rank.

CONHI is part of a vibrant research, education, and practice community at ASU, named this year by U.S. News and World Report for the fourth year in a row as #1 in Innovation among all universities in the U.S. CONHI faculty collaborate across professions, other colleges, and universities and have current or recent funding from NIH, PCORI, the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education, HRSA, the Veterans Administration, the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation and several other local, regional, and national organizations. CONHI faculty also collaborate with a wide-ranging group of community and healthcare organizations, including Mayo Clinic, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Banner Health, Dignity Health, HonorHealth, and the VA Medical Center on interprofessional education, practice, and research initiatives to improve the economic, social, and cultural health and vitality of shared local, state, national, and global communities.

CONHI offers a rich interprofessional research and teaching environment with a unique and growing transdisciplinary PhD program, an in-house sleep laboratory, and centers encompassing health promotion and disease prevention; interprofessional practice, education, and research; global health; and aging. The new Center for Innovation in Healthy and Resilient Aging (CIHRA) is an interdisciplinary and interprofessional endeavor to promote research, training, and education that helps solve challenges in aging. The majority of CIHRA’s efforts focus on innovative wellness, strength-based, and resilience- and capacity-building research opportunities that would translate into positive change from the level of the individuals and families, to organizations and systems, and ultimately to communities and local, national, and global policies.

Competitive applications and letters of interest will provide evidence (e.g., published research, professional presentations, grants and grant applications, teaching evaluations, teaching/mentoring experiences, etc.) related to the minimum and desired qualifications outlined below.

Minimum Qualifications will include the following:

 PhD or similar degree in nursing or health-related research area from an accredited university.
 For early-career faculty, evidence of an emerging program of research and scholarship through peer-reviewed, high-quality publications, and potential for securing extramurally funded research.
 For senior faculty, an established program of research as evidenced by extramurally funded research and peer-reviewed, high-quality publications/dissemination activities.
 For applicants having a degree in nursing, eligibility for entry-level licensure in Arizona; must provide evidence/receipt of an Arizona Registered Nurse license prior to first day of employment. NOTE: This does not apply for applicants who are not Registered Nurses.

Desired Qualifications:

 For early-career faculty, postdoctoral training.
