Adult Literacy Researchers Wanted!

Adult Literacy faculty opening

Please share with one and all! I am proud to share with you an exciting opportunity (see attachment). Georgia State University has faculty lines open for THREE scholars with established external funding and research in adult literacy. Faculty members will be hired at the rank of professor or associate professor (possibility with tenure on appointment). Applicants are expected to have strong records of scholarship, funded research, excellence in teaching, and service in the broadly defined area of adult literacy. These areas include but are not limited to health literacy, family literacy, workplace literacy, numeracy skills, and/or the economic impact of low adult literacy. The new faculty members will add depth and breadth to the currently-funded IES Center for the Study of Adult Literacy (csal.gsu.edu) and the newly developing College of Education's Adult Literacy Research Center.

Appointments are anticipated to begin Fall 2015.

Qualifications: A doctorate in relevant areas, such as health communication, public health, economics, family studies, educational psychology, language, and/or literacy is required. Upon hire, faculty members will be expected to conduct a successful, externally-funded research program that includes peer-reviewed publications in the area of adult literacy. Tenure can be considered in the College of Education, School of Public Health, or the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies in an appropriate department.

Applications/Nominations: Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until all positions are filled. For questions, please contact Daphne Greenberg at dgreenberg@gsu.eduApplicants are asked to send a cover letter discussing interest and qualifications, and a curriculum vita.
