Competitive candidates will demonstrate experience in curricula and educational program development, have undergone postdoctoral training or other academic experience as well as show evidence of success in teaching, research and scholarship. Registered nurse license or eligible for nursing license in the state of California is preferred. Candidates should demonstrate interest in health research related to health status, health priorities, health disparities, interventions and/or outcomes, especially for rural, aging and/or minority populations. Service and professional activities including committee appointments at local, state, regional and national levels as well as publications, participation in and presentations at interdisciplinary and interprofessional education and scientific meetings will be required. Successful candidates will become faculty members in the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Graduate Group.
