Primary Function of Organizational Unit

The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, North Carolina (NC) State University is bringing some of the best and brightest minds to join NC State University’s interdisciplinary efforts to solve some of the globe’s most significant problems. Guided by a strong strategic plan and an aggressive vision, the cluster hiring program is adding new faculty members in select fields to add more breadth and depth to NC State’s already-strong efforts. The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program marks a major initiative of the university’s strategic plan, “The Pathway to the Future.” We invite you to explore the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program and this cluster at https://facultyclusters.ncsu.edu/

NC State University provides a dynamic environment for research, teaching, mentoring, and collaboration across disciplines. Our location in the Research Triangle provides rich opportunities for interactions with industry, research organizations, other universities, and government agencies.

Essential Job Duties

As part of the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, North Carolina (NC) State University is building a research cluster focused on Global Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (Global WaSH). We are in the process of hiring innovative and transformative academic leaders whose scholarship will advance NC State’s position as a national leader in multidisciplinary water and environmental research, education, and outreach that can be harnessed to develop scalable water and sanitation solutions in underserved areas around the world.

The aim of the Global WaSH Faculty Cluster is to position NC State as a leading university in the US conducting critical research and teaching in vital and complex water and sanitation issues. The Global WaSH Cluster will create exciting, innovative, and novel scholarship that reflects the realities and complexities of resource constraints, human aspirations, and cultural diversity. The Global WaSH cluster will comprise a group of highly promising and leading faculty members who will address the scientific, social, and policy issues associated with providing sustainable water and sanitation in underserved communities. We expect faculty in the cluster to establish an active research and teaching collaboratorium across multiple departments and colleges focusing on WaSH issues. The positions in this cluster offer dynamic, forward-thinking faculty a unique opportunity to integrate with, and expand upon, NC State’s considerable expertise in order to develop world-class research and academic initiatives around the broad theme of Global WaSH. To date, three faculty have joined the Global WaSH Cluster.

To complement this group, we seek social scientists whose work will contribute to interdisciplinary collaborations and is anchored in underserved communities. Training in either qualitative or quantitative methodologies would be welcome as would a disciplinary background in fields such as anthropology, environmental sciences, history, international development, policy science, and public health. Specific research approaches may include, but are not limited to, environmental justice/equity, design and evaluation of behavioral and community interventions, gender studies, and behavioral psychology. Geographic expertise is expected in the Global South, with some preference for regions with the greatest needs in the WaSH domain. Rank is open with some preference for candidates positioned to take on leadership roles within the cluster.

Company Profile
This is the new ncsu.edu, launched in August 2014. This redesigned site offers users an experience that reflects NC State itself. Innovative. Purposeful. Modern. Regular users will notice something immediately about this site: There’s less of it. In redesigning and rebuilding ncsu.edu, we considered the value of every page and subpage, removing content that lacked utility and erasing barriers between users and the information they seek. We took a similar approach to design. The redesigned site is cleaner and brighter, giving its content room to breathe and tell our story. We also streamlined and clarified the organization of ncsu.edu. Primary navigation on our homepage and throughout ncsu.edu is organized around topics: About NC State, Admissions, Research, Academics, Partnerships, Campus Life, Outreach and Athletics. On these pages and the homepage itself, you’ll learn about our world-leading faculty and staff, high-performing students and the solution-driven research and scholarship they produce.
