Assistant Professor, A.J. Drexel Autism Institute

Posted on November 13, 2017

The Policy and Analytics Center at the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute seeks a non-tenure track Assistant Professor to focus on health and social policy research. This Assistant Professor position will be a part of the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute’s commitment to achieve public health impact. In addition to the Policy and Analytics Center, the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute houses three research program areas and three cores. Learn more about the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute at http://www.drexel.edu/autism. The goals of this position are to support and build projects that lead to the development and implementation of effective social and health policy. The focus of the Policy and Analytics Center is both to create applied policy products and to generate traditional academic grants and publications. An ideal candidate would focus on both, but an approach leaning toward one or the other contributes to the goals of the Policy and Analytics Center. Existing projects at the Policy and Analytics Center provide opportunities to engage in research and applied policy partnerships, and engagement with other projects and faculty at the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute are encouraged. Faculty at the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute are expected to generate grant proposals, manage research projects, developing scholarly articles and presentations, and disseminate findings to advocates and policy makers. Ideal applicants must strive to work in an applied research environment directly impacting policy. Applicants with a doctorate in disability studies, economics, public health, health services research, and public policy are encouraged. Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, three reference contacts, and a 1-page statement of research interests.

Submit application to: Lindsay Shea, Director, Policy and Analytics Center at the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute, ljl42@drexel.edu
