Clinical Assistant Professor – Nutrition

Arizona State University’s College of Health Solutions (CHS) Nutrition program is seeking a full-time, 9-month career track clinical faculty member at the rank of Clinical Assistant Professor. This position will teach clinical nutrition and other courses as assigned within CHS. The nutrition program at ASU comprises three different undergraduate degree options, including an accredited Didactic program in Dietetics (DPD) through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), a Nutritional Science program, and a Food and Nutrition Entrepreneurship program. The graduate degree options include Nutritional Science Dietetics, Medical Nutrition and Nutritional Science. Nutrition in CHS is a large and thriving program housed within one of the most innovative universities in the world. The College of Health Solutions resides on the Downtown Phoenix campus, a dynamic and growing campus surrounded by other ASU health programs and within the heart of the Phoenix Bioscience Core, a multi-institutional area of the city in which health-related research, education, and collaboration thrives. This is a fixed-term appointment that is renewable annually.  Subsequent one-year appointments may be offered, under the same terms and conditions, at the discretion of the college and university. 

Responsibilities for this position include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses on-line and/or in-person, and providing service to the college and relevant degrees. In-person courses are primarily located on the Downtown Phoenix Campus, but travel to other campuses may be required. Applicants must present evidence of teaching experience and a strong commitment to high quality teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Typical workloads for instructional clinical faculty are consistent with 80% teaching (usually equivalent to four courses per semester) and 20% service.

We value and encourage cultural and intellectual diversity, and strive to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for all faculty, staff and students — which we believe is critical to our success as a community.

About the College of Health Solutions

The College of Health Solutions is committed to translating scientific health research and discovery into practice to improve health outcomes through education, research and service. We equip students with the knowledge and skills to influence healthier lifestyle choices; develop creative interventions to improve the health of people and populations; analyze and translate large amounts of health data into solutions; and maximize the technology, science, business and application of diagnostics. Through teaching, academic programs, service and research, faculty at the College of Health Solutions address one or more of our three major areas of focus: 1) The systems of health care and the health needs of populations; 2) Health and human performance of individuals across the lifespan; 3) Personalized interventions through precision health. Across these areas, we work to address complex and difficult health problems that require transformative collaboration, translational research and innovation. We are particularly interested in making an impact on populations with significant health disparities.

Our research programs encompass basic science, discovery science, clinical trials, intervention science and measurement of health outcomes. In all cases, our faculty use interdisciplinary approaches to address the complex systems that underpin health problems. We are highly collaborative, transparent and team-oriented. Our innovative organizational structure includes translational teams that move science from labs into communities with evidence-based interventions that make a difference, as well as affinity networks where teams of people work together to improve methodologies and processes. All of our programs, in and out of the classroom, are designed with the goal of improving the health of people and communities.

Current training programs by areas of study include biomedical informatics, biomedical diagnostics, health care systems, health sciences & medical studies, movement sciences, nutrition, population health, the science of healthcare delivery, and speech and hearing sciences. Our programs are offered at the ASU Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, Polytechnic, West and Lake Havasu campuses, as well as on Mayo Clinic’s campus in north Phoenix.
