disciplinary background in health, education, or the social sciences (e.g., psychology).
The successful candidate will play a leadership role in establishing a cutting-edge,
community-relevant research facility and lead a research program focused on the
advancement of community-based and clinically relevant strategies designed to
maximize the mental health of young people.
