The Department of Psychiatry at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Assistant Professor position in the non-tenure clinician-educator track. Responsibilities include active participation in a multi-disciplinary team, the ability to supervise staff and students in the use of digital and information technologies to deliver evidence-based interventions and make significant contributions to on-going projects.

The successful applicant will have research experience in addictions, social media, technology-based interventions, and Internet research ethics. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree.

We are especially interested in individuals with a background in social media methodologies, including the analysis of social media data and demonstrated expertise in applications of these techniques to the study of topics relevant to addictive disorders and co-occurring conditions. Additional experience in examining the benefits and ethical concerns of using “big data” generated from social networking platforms in addictions research and experience in recruiting and retaining participants in clinical trials, particularly minorities, is desirable. The successful candidate will have a strong record of publications in these areas and the potential to obtain peer-reviewed grants. The candidate should be highly motivated and organized, able to work independently, and possess strong interpersonal skills. Applicants must have demonstrated excellent qualifications in health communication and research ethics.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.

The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/Women/Individuals with disabilities/Protected Veterans are encouraged to apply.
