Excellence Hires in Health Technology at Illinois
The College of Applied Health Sciences at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is seeking two new senior faculty excellence hires to advance the expansion of our innovative and interdisciplinary research area in health technology. We are expanding in two areas of health, with one position primarily focused on physical health and the second primarily focused on psychosocial/cognitive/brain health. Research on health technologies can involve development of emerging, innovative technologies as well as the integration of existing technologies to monitor health behaviors; enhance quality of life; predict, detect, or treat disease and disorders. Examples include sensors, assistive devices, wearables, mobile apps, robots, communication devices, advanced imaging, neurotechnologies, virtual/augmented reality, artificial intelligence, machine learning, telehealth applications.
We expect to hire two faculty members, with a primary research emphasis in either physical health or psychosocial/cognitive/brain health, both very broadly defined. Special consideration will be given to candidates whose research also emphasizes health disparities and health equity including those with disabilities.
This opportunity is part of an ambitious, ongoing campus and college expansion in health technology research. Candidates for these positions should be senior faculty (Associate or Full Professor) with a documented history of significant and sustained extramural funding. Successful candidates should have a history of leading large research groups and interdisciplinary collaborations, as well as demonstrated excellence in teaching and mentoring. We seek collaborative leaders with a strong, innovative vision. These senior positions will be complemented by future hires at the assistant professor level to strengthen health technology research in our College. Competitive start-up packages and opportunities for named professorships exist for qualified candidates.
The College of Applied Health Sciences is home to three academic departments: (1) Kinesiology and Community Health; (2) Recreation, Sport and Tourism; and (3) Speech and Hearing Science, any of which will be the academic home for faculty hired for these positions.
