Florida State University (FSU) is one of 6 universities among the first cohort of the NIH Faculty Institutional Recruitment for Sustainable Transformation (FIRST) Program . FSU aims to develop, implement, and evaluate a program, Fostering Institutional Resources for Science Transformation: The FLORIDA-FIRST Health-Science Brigade (aka The FLORIDA-FIRST BRIGADE; U54CA267730-01) to transform culture at FSU to generate a self-sustaining scientific community dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusive excellence. Through this exciting initiative, we are recruiting a FIRST Cohort of 6 early-career researchers who demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusive excellence and who contribute to clusters of research excellence in chronic disease prevention and management (Cluster 1) or mental health (Cluster 2). New hires will participate in a systems-level approach to support individual faculty research and career development (micro), within their cohort and collaborative networks (meso), that can be replicated through sustainable changes to university culture (macro).

We seek to hire 6 tenure-track assistant professors with a research focus on mental health (3 faculty) or chronic disease prevention and management (3 faculty), with a target start date for August 2022. The 6 new hires of The FIRST Cohort will hold a primary appointment in one of the Equity Research Corner centers in addition to their tenure-track appointment in departments appropriate to their research foci. Appointments come with full summer salary and at least 75% protected time for research for the first three years.

Positions will be reviewed as applications are received.
