The Department of Medical Social Sciences (MSS) (http://www.mss.northwestern.edu/), at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine seeks a full-time non-tenure-eligible team scientist at the rank of associate professor. Responsibilities include participation in multiple research projects that include pediatric health and health outcomes measurement.

This can include child self-report, parent report, and performance measures, including positive aspects of health. We strongly encourage Black, Indigenous, people of color (BIPOC); transgender and non-binary applicants; sexual minorities; people with disabilities; and women to apply.
Qualified candidates will collaborate with other faculty at Northwestern University on research projects that require knowledge and skills associated with measuring child symptoms and function, family environment, exposure to traumatic and stressful experiences, thriving, and resilience. Seeking independent research funding is encouraged as a component of a larger collaborative role. The candidate will join the department, a transdisciplinary group within the medical school comprised primarily of Ph.D. scientists conducting human-subjects research with an outreach mission to clinical departments. MSS is a research-intensive department that highly values mentorship and teaching. With over 75 faculty synergizing across methods, disciplines, and health conditions, MSS is an ideal academic home for measurement scientists who innovate across disciplinary boundaries and work well in a team science environment. Hallmarks of MSS include its collaborative orientation, its entrepreneurial spirit, and transdisciplinary milieu. MSS’s scientific themes are represented in its cross-cutting hubs: Health Equity, Lifespan Health Promotion, Outcomes Science & Measurement, and Mechanisms of Health and Disease. The MSS Inclusion, Diversity Engagement and Action (IDEA) Committee drives a dynamic discourse and department wide effort to continually expand MSS engagement with, and action towards creating and training a more inclusive and representative health science. The department welcomes applications from individuals who may have had nontraditional career paths, or who may have taken time off for family reasons (e.g., children, caring for disabled or elderly family), or who have achieved excellence in careers outside of academia (e.g., in professional or industry service.
The start date is negotiable and the position will remain open until filled.
