Associate/Full Professor & Director of Human Performance

Arizona State University's College of Health Solutions (CHS) is seeking a full-time, tenure-eligible faculty member at the rank of either Associate or Full Professor. This position would also serve as the Director of Human Performance (HP) for the college.

About Human Performance at CHS

The College of Health Solution's mission is to optimize health and function across the lifespan. Human performance has important implications for current and future health concerns and populations, including healthy aging, wellness in the workplace, performance optimization, neuroplasticity, and rehabilitation. A new initiative within CHS is focused on establishing a Center for Human Performance with research across three areas including Prevention, Rehabilitation, and Performance Optimization:

  • Prevention: Early detection and prevention of obesity, cancer or dementia, lifestyle interventions
  • Rehabilitation: Mobility impairments, dementia, neurorehabilitation
  • Performance Optimization: Cognitive, physical, and mental health

Through teaching, academic programs, service and research, all faculty at the College of Health Solutions address one or more of our three major areas of focus: 1) The systems of health care and the health needs of populations; 2) Health and human performance of individuals across the lifespan; 3) Personalized interventions through precision health. Across these areas, we work to address complex and difficult health problems which require transformative collaboration, translational research and innovation. We are particularly interested in making an impact on populations with significant health disparities.

Responsibilities for this position include developing and maintaining a successful research program, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, mentoring students and junior faculty, and providing service to the program and university as well as to the community and profession. This person will also be responsible for positioning CHS as a leader in Human Performance by creating a team of faculty and community partners focused on HP, growing the college's research footprint in the area, developing a programmatic, comprehensive, and strategic HP research enterprise, and helping lead college-wide and university-wide efforts on HP. The ideal candidate will present evidence of a successful research trajectory commensurate with the rank of Associate or Full Professor, including a sustained extramural funding and peer-reviewed publications, experience in leading sustainable interdisciplinary collaborations, and a strong commitment to high quality teaching and mentoring.

At ASU and the College of Health Solutions, we work to maximize opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds, abilities and perspectives. We value and encourage cultural and intellectual diversity, and strive to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for all faculty, staff and students - which we believe is critical to our success as a community.

About the College of Health Solutions

The College of Health Solutions is committed to translating scientific health research and discovery into practice to improve health outcomes through education, research and service. We equip students with the knowledge and skills to influence healthier lifestyle choices; develop creative interventions to improve the health of people and populations; analyze and translate large amounts of health data into solutions; and maximize the technology, science, business and application of diagnostics. Our research programs encompass basic science, discovery science, clinical trials, intervention science and measurement of health outcomes. In all cases, our faculty use interdisciplinary approaches to address the complex systems that underpin health problems. We are highly collaborative, transparent and team-oriented. Our innovative organizational structure includes translational teams that move science from labs into communities with evidence-based interventions that make a difference, as well as affinity networks where teams of people work together to improve methodologies and processes. All of our programs, in and out of the classroom, are designed with the goal of improving the health of people and communities.

Current training programs include behavioral health, biomedical diagnostics, biomedical informatics, exercise science, health promotion, health sciences, kinesiology, medical studies, nutrition, population health, the science of health care delivery, and speech and hearing science. Our programs are offered at the ASU Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, Polytechnic, West and Lake Havasu campuses, as well as on Mayo Clinic's campus in north Phoenix.
