The Department of Preventive Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) Keck School of Medicine invites applications for a research-track faculty position at the rank of assistant or associate professor. We seek a faculty member with expertise in behavioral or social science to join the USC Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science (USC-TCORS; tcors.usc.edu), a multidisciplinary team of faculty, students, and staff that conducts research to inform U.S. federal regulation of tobacco products. This faculty member will dedicate the majority of their research program to tobacco regulatory science; thus, a track record or strong interest in tobacco regulatory science is required.
The Project Manager (PM) will work closely with faculty, staff, students, and volunteers and will manage recruitment, retention, and data collection for all cohort studies. The PM will serve as a leader and director on critical day-to-day operations as well as long term projects.
The Project Assistants (PA) will assist with recruitment, retention, and data collection for the four cohorts, which includes administrative tasks and working closely with research participants. Each PA will be the primary lead on one of the cohort studies and will manage all day-to-day operations for that cohort.
The Data Management Coordinator (DMC) will work closely with faculty to manage all systems pertaining to data collection for the cohort studies. The position will involve development of data collection systems, oversight of technical aspects of data collection, and data management and integration of collected data from all cohorts.
