This recruitment is part of an ambitious Invest Syracuse Cluster Hire Initiative in the broad area of Aging, Behavioral Health, and Neuroscience. As an integral part of this investment, Syracuse University will recruit multiple candidates for faculty positions for a research cluster in the focus area of aging. Faculty hired into these positions will build on our existing strengths in the focus area and will participate in an organized research cluster that spans multiple departments in the Maxwell School, the College of Arts and Sciences, Falk College, and the College of Engineering and Computer Science. In addition, the individual will also have the opportunity to become affiliated with one or more of the University's other interdisciplinary research centers such as the University's Aging Studies Institute, Maxwell School's Center of Policy Research or the Maxwell School's Program for Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration. Therefore, a track record of collaborative research output is particularly desirable, and record of success in obtaining research support, particularly from the National Institutes of Health or the National Science Foundation.
