Job Duties

Together the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Science at Purdue University seek applications for multiple scholars in Sociogenomics, including existing groups of investigators, to assemble a new world-leading cohort of approximately 15 faculty. The positions include tenure-track Assistant, Associate, and Professor ranks. A relatively new field, Sociogenomics encompasses theoretical and methodological approaches across the social, behavioral, and genetic sciences including those with an emphasis on computation. It explores the roles of genetics in social and behavior outcomes, as well as how genetics interact with the environment and social forces. Purdue is strongly committed to establishing a pre-eminent center in this emerging area including hiring a substantive cohort of scholars. We are especially interested in fostering collaborative linkages across the core fields of this discipline, here at Purdue and more broadly. This search is open to leading scholars in any area relevant to the advancement of Sociogenomics, and we are especially interested in candidates who draw from and contribute to research in the social science disciplines, biological sciences, the computational and data sciences, statistics, or other related disciplines. We anticipate joint appointments across departments where appropriate, with tenure homes flexible and negotiated at the time of hire.

We place particular emphasis at Purdue on responsible conduct of research and research ethics, and candidates will be expected to discuss this substantively in their applications. Beyond contributions of high-quality research aligned with the description above, successful candidates are expected to contribute to high-quality teaching, training, and mentoring of PhD students.

Qualifications

Must have completed all requirements for the PhD by the start date of the position in an appropriate field with a vigorous research program that will advance knowledge in Sociogenomics. Candidates should demonstrate a strong research profile and trajectory appropriate to rank. Candidates who apply for positions at the rank of tenured Associate or Professor should hold that rank at their current institution or have a record suitable for promotion to that rank at a leading research university. Furthermore, the person holding this position will create and disseminate relevant knowledge through student instruction.

Purdue University, the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Science are committed to advancing diversity in all areas of faculty effort, including discovery, instruction, and engagement.  Candidates are encouraged to address in their cover letter how they are prepared to contribute to a climate that values diversity and inclusion.

Purdue University, the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Science are committed to free and open inquiry in all matters. Candidates are encouraged to address in their cover letter how they are prepared to contribute to a climate that values free inquiry and academic freedom.

The Center for Bioethics and Humanities is seeking qualified candidates for a full-time faculty position at the rank of Associate or full Professor to serve as an educator in health humanities and as Director of the Anschutz Medical Campus’ Arts and Humanities in Healthcare Program. 

The University of Colorado Center for Bioethics and Humanities develops and implements humanities and arts-related educational programs that impact virtually every learner and academic program on the Anschutz Medical Campus as well as facilitating related undergraduate and graduate programs at the University of Colorado and in our local and regional communities. The Center’s Arts and Humanities in Healthcare Program has been a national model and innovator in health humanities education and scholarship since its inception as a campus-wide program in 2009, and we seek an individual to lead this program to the next level of growth and success.

The ideal candidate to direct the Arts and Humanities in Healthcare Program will be a visionary leader with a passion for teaching and a record of excellence and national prominence in health humanities, including significant accomplishments in education and scholarship in the field. We seek an innovative, energetic, and engaging director, capable of upholding our position as a pioneering program in health humanities and shaping future directions for the program and the field. The director must have a strong track record in one or more of the major sub-fields within health humanities, such as narrative theory and practice in health care; media and health; exploration of music, writing, and/or visual arts in healthcare settings; or dramatic arts, such as improv or theatre of the oppressed. Experience in and passion for teaching are critical, including a strong commitment to influencing the growth and identity formation of health professions students through the arts and humanities, recognizing that music, history, literature, poetry, other arts and reflective writing support transformative learning into reflective and humanistic practice. Experience in clinical/therapeutic use of the arts in health care settings and in securing and conducting funded research related to arts and humanities in health care are highly desired.

The program director will help lead the ongoing expansion of the Center’s teaching and training programs and will have primary responsibilities related to teaching in health humanities across all of the University of Colorado’s health professions schools, including dental medicine, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, physical therapy and physician assistant programs. The Center plays a leading role in the University’s required interprofessional education curriculum, oversees and contributes to teaching in the Bioethics and Humanities Trail in the School of Medicine’s Trek Curriculum, and regularly teaches electives in other colleges and schools. The Center is also responsible for some residency training and collaboration with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences on the University of Colorado Denver’s Health Humanities Minor, including teaching the Minor’s required introductory course. The director is responsible for leadership and active participation in curriculum and program development and evaluation and serves as a mentor for university faculty and students who aspire to further study, training or development of teaching skills in arts and humanities in health care.

In addition to these core educational roles for the university, the director of the program has multiple opportunities to use Center resources to enhance the lives of our university colleagues and to reach beyond the university to our regional, national and international partners and stakeholders. These resources include The Art Gallery at the Fulginiti Pavilion for Bioethics and Humanities; the Music and Medicine Initiative, including the Anschutz Campus Choir and Orchestra; editorial oversight of the annual publication, The Human Touch: A Journal of Literature and the Arts; and curation of the Arts in Medicine Lecture series, the endowed Claman Lectureship and other programming.

Finally, the program director serves as a prominent advocate, fundraiser and voice for health humanities and for using humanities and arts to enhance empathy, understanding and resilience in health care. Candidates for this position should be prepared to lead the creation of new and expanded opportunities for students, health professionals, patients and the public to engage in discourse about important issues facing health care and society around social justice, equity, and human rights. The program director will be particularly expected to expand opportunities for learners from groups that have been traditionally marginalized and whose voices have not been heard.
