Detailed Job Description

The Department of Child, Youth and Family Studies is seeking to hire a faculty member at the Assistant Professor rank who will contribute needed expertise in the impact on families of immigration and migration.
Immigration and migration are increasing in the United States and worldwide. Expertise on the impacts of immigration and migration on families, youth and children is needed, including expertise on the impact of mobility (voluntary or involuntary) on families when family members are separated by immigration/migration and when one or more members have been involuntarily displaced from their home countries. This position will fill an important gap within the cluster of expertise that exists and is being developed within UNL, CEHS, and CYAF. This position will strengthen the global family emphasis within the CYAF, and will contribute to the undergraduate program in Human Development and Family Science and the graduate programs in International Family Studies (M.S.) and Global Family Health and Wellbeing (Ph.D.). The incumbent will teach undergraduate and graduate courses, advise graduate student research, and conduct research related to family immigration/migration. It is expected that the incumbent will develop relationships with state and local agencies serving immigrant/migrant communities. The incumbent will develop a research program and scholarship portfolio known nationally and internationally for excellence and impact, and will increase the impact of their research by bringing it to scale through external, including federal, funding. The incumbent will contribute expertise that already exists in this area of research and scholarship in other departments within CEHS, Arts and Sciences, and Cooperative Extension. The incumbent is expected to collaborate with others to expand the impact of their work.

CEHS has a history of dedication to enhancing the lives of individuals, families, schools and communities. In order to address big problems through multiple disciplines CEHS is making a commitment to significantly build on our work by hiring 22 faculty with interests in the areas of Early Childhood; Immigrant, Migrant and Multicultural Populations; Bullying Prevention; Math and Science Education; and Rural Education/Rural Communities across multiple departments http://cehs.unl.edu/cehs/coordinated-hire-web-site.

Minimum Required Qualifications:
1. Doctoral degree in an area of study related to the impact on families of immigration and migration. 
2. Experience teaching in higher education, and evidence of teaching excellence.
3. Record of research and scholarship that demonstrates potential for developing a high impact program of research in federal funding priority areas. 
4. Evidence of a global perspective.

Preferred Qualifications: 
1. Evidence of skills in translational research.

Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2015 and continue until the position is filled or the search is closed.
