Position description

The Department of Neurology is recruiting an Associate Professor In Residence within the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center with a research focus on health disparities related to Alzheimer’s disease and dementias.

The selected candidate will maintain a robust, independent and collaborative research program specifically focused on Alzheimer’s disease, and other associated dementias, and how the psychological stress of such illnesses impacts ethnically diverse family caregivers. The candidate should have demonstrated expertise in the design, analysis, and reporting of observational (mixed-methods preferred) and intervention research studies in Alzheimer’s disease and caregiving research. Particular consideration will be given to candidates with experience in community-engaged research related to diversity and disparities research and with a focus on underserved populations. The candidate will be expected to teach and mentor undergraduate students, graduate students, and other trainees. Additionally, the candidate will be expected to provide service to the department, the School of Medicine, and the University including a leadership role within the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.

The selected candidate will join the internationally recognized research environment of the UC Davis Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) as well as associated neuroscience programs such as the Imaging of Dementia and Aging (IDeA) laboratory, the Center for Mind and Brain, the Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders (MIND) Institute and the Center for Neuroscience. The UC Davis ADRC is one of only 31 research centers currently designated by the National Institutes of Health's National Institute on Aging. The UC Davis ADRC has a vast research portfolio and has been continuously funded for over 30 years.

The In Residence title at the University of California is an Academic Senate title assigned to academically qualified individuals who engage in teaching, research or other creative work, and university and public service to the same extent and at the same level of performance as those holding corresponding titles in the professor series in the same department. Professor in residence titles are intended to be used for individuals supported by non-state funds.

This recruitment is conducted at the associate professor rank. The resulting hire will be at the associate rank, regardless of the proposed appointee's qualifications.
