Endowed Chair Opening at Florida State

FSU-West-EntranceThe Florida State University Department of Sociology invites applications for the Mildred and Claude Pepper Eminent Scholar Chair in Social Gerontology. The Pepper Eminent Scholar Chair is an endowed position tied to the Pepper Institute on Aging and Public Policy in the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy. The Chair is expected to complement one or more of the Pepper Institute’s four research foci: (1) aging and health disparities, (2) pathways to later life, (3) transportation and neighborhoods, and (4) politics of aging.  We are seeking applications from scholars at the Associate or Full Professor levels who have a record of funded research and experience with interdisciplinary research on aging-related policy issues. Applications should include a personal letter and curriculum vitae; letters of reference will be requested at a later date. Screening will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.  All application materials should be submitted electronically to John Reynolds, Chair, at sociology@fsu.edu.
