The Department of Nursing invites applicants to join our diverse college as a tenure-track or tenured faculty member beginning fall 2013. Rank and salary are dependent on qualifications and experience. Research experience is required and an established program of research with evidence of external funding is desirable.
Applicants must possess an earned research doctorate in nursing or a related field, and must be eligible for RN licensure in Massachusetts. Teaching experience in higher education is preferred, and experience with online teaching is desirable; teaching experience in other settings will be considered. Preference will be given to applicants with funded research and peer-reviewed data-based publications focused on enhancing the health-related quality of life of diverse urban populations of all ages and targeted to health care quality, health policy, and population health. We are particularly interested in faculty who will strengthen our teaching initiatives in acute care, young and older adult health, community health, medical-surgical nursing, or psychiatric mental health, with research focused on health disparities, health promotion, obesity, physical activity, or rehabilitation and who are committed to teaching a diverse student population in an urban setting, as well as faculty who will develop and evaluate curricula designed to reduce health disparities in racially and ethnically diverse populations. Our current teaching needs are primarily in the undergraduate and Doctor of Nursing Practice programs.
The College of Nursing and Health Sciences and its Office of Research offer strong internal and external mentoring programs for faculty, including grant proposal and manuscript preparation. The College offers a wide range of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborative research opportunities. Current faculty collaborations include those with numerous major academic and medical institutions in and around Boston, including the Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Center, Children’s Hospital, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and many community, public, and private health care agencies. The National Cancer Institute funded University of Massachusetts Boston-Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Care Center grant, "Comprehensive Minority Institution Cancer Center Partnership,” has enabled faculty at both institutions to strengthen and extend partnerships for research, PhD training, and community outreach. New and exciting collaborative teaching and research opportunities are being developed as we add young and older adult components to the College’s interdisciplinary Youth Fitness Training and Research Center. A joint appointment with an area healthcare institution is possible.
The BS, MS, and DNP nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. The MS and DNP programs focus on preparation of Family Nurse Practitioners, Adult/Gerontological Nurse Practitioners, and Adult Health Clinical Nurse Specialists. The PhD in nursing program focuses on individual and population-related health policy.
