Location: Raleigh, NC
Essential Job Duties:
As part of the Chancellor's Faculty Excellence Program, North Carolina (NC) State University is building a research cluster focused on Global Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (Global WaSH). We are in the process of hiring innovative and transformative academic leaders whose scholarship will advance NC State's position as a national leader in multidisciplinary water and environmental research, education, and outreach that can be harnessed to develop scalable water and sanitation solutions in underserved areas around the world.
The aim of the Global WaSH Faculty Cluster is to position NC State as a leading university in the US conducting critical research and teaching in vital and complex water and sanitation issues. The Global WaSH Cluster will create exciting, innovative, and novel scholarship that reflects the realities and complexities of resource constraints, human aspirations, and cultural diversity. The Global WaSH cluster will comprise a group of highly promising and leading faculty members who will address the scientific, social, and policy issues associated with providing sustainable water and sanitation in underserved communities. We expect faculty in the cluster to establish an active research and teaching collaboratorium across multiple departments and colleges focusing on WaSH issues. The positions in this cluster offer dynamic, forward-thinking faculty a unique opportunity to integrate with, and expand upon, NC State's considerable expertise in order to develop world-class research and academic initiatives around the broad theme of Global WaSH. To date, three faculty have joined the Global WaSH Cluster.
To complement this group, we seek social scientists whose work will contribute to interdisciplinary collaborations and is anchored in underserved communities. Training in either qualitative or quantitative methodologies would be welcome as would a disciplinary background in fields such as anthropology, environmental sciences, history, international development, policy science, and public health. Specific research approaches may include, but are not limited to, environmental justice/equity, design and evaluation of behavioral and community interventions, gender studies, and behavioral psychology. Geographic expertise is expected in the Global South, with some preference for regions with the greatest needs in the WaSH domain. Rank is open with some preference for candidates positioned to take on leadership roles within the cluster.
