Assistant Professor

The strategic plan of the Department of Agricultural Economics, Sociology, and Education (AESE) states that “Fostering healthy individuals and communities cuts across local and global levels, and requires knowledge of how processes of individual, community, and regional development interact.” To further strengthen scholarship in this area, the department seeks candidates for a nine-month tenure-track Assistant Professor position with a 65% research and 35% extension responsibility and with the expectation of membership in the graduate faculty as well as faculty affiliate status with the appropriate Penn State center of excellence. This position is part of The Pennsylvania State University's recently launched Consortium to Combat Substance Abuse (CCSA); https://CombatSubstanceAbuse.ssri.psu.edu, which seeks colleagues whose research interests and expertise fit within the broad areas of pathways to addiction, criminal justice, and/or spillover effects of harmful substance use and abuse to families and communities. Our expectation is that these new colleagues will work actively to build a powerful inter-disciplinary community of scholars focused on illuminating the multi-level processes that give rise to addiction; designing, implementing, evaluating, and disseminating novel, evidence-based approaches for prevention and treatment of addiction; and identifying and ameliorating the effects of substance abuse on families and communities.
