Public Health - FRI Research Assistant Professor

The First-year Research Immersion (FRI) program at Binghamton University invites applications for a three-year renewable, full time Research Assistant Professor (also known as the Research Educator) position, to begin August 2024. This is a unique 10-month non-tenure track faculty position that directly combines teaching and research. This position is for Public Health (open to individuals with appropriate background in Public Health, Epidemiology, Bioinformatics, Anthropology, Psychology, Data Science, Medical Sociology or other Public Health related fields). Review of applications will begin February 1st, 2024.

FRI Public Health is a program in which a Research Educator guides first-year and second-year students in innovative research that advances the field. The Research Educator shapes the research theme, but the stream has typically focused on collecting data via surveying or using publicly available data sets and then analyzing these large data sets to examine patterns and inform policy relating to: mental health, maternal and child health, obesity, chronic disease prevention research and/or social determinants of health.

This position will entail guiding student cohorts (~30 per cohort) through authentic research experiences and, in doing so, will help students develop the professional skills desired by graduate schools and employers. Within that process and working with the faculty stream collaborators, the Research Educator maintains and/or expands their own research program.
