The University of Connecticut invites applications at the level of full professor for the position of Director of the Institute for Collaboration on Health, Intervention, and Policy (InCHIP). InCHIP is a multidisciplinary University research institute with a portfolio of $58 million in active grants (FY17), which is dedicated to the creation and dissemination of new theoretical frameworks, new knowledge, and new interventions in the areas of health, health behavior, and health behavior change. Work on health policy is becoming an increasing focus. InCHIP investigators have expertise in a range of areas including HIV prevention, cancer prevention and control, treatment adherence, intervention science, obesity, nutrition, kinesiology, autism, digital health technologies, pharmacology, substance abuse, school and child health, health policy, and complementary and alternative approaches to medicine.
The InCHIP Director will provide visionary leadership and serve as the University’s representative for over 400 faculty and network of researcher affiliates, mostly from UConn and UConn Health, but also well-known scholars from more than 50 other research institutions in the U.S. and around the world. The Director will also mentor faculty and build upon InCHIP’s strengths to further increase its success in performing world-class research and securing large-scale extramural funding that will expand the impact InCHIP research has on U.S. and global health and health policy.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled, with preference given to candidates who apply by December 15, 2017.
