Assistant Professor, Autism Life Course Outcomes (tenure track)

The Autism Institute seeks applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position. This position has a 12-month salary base with a primary appointment at the Autism Institute within the program area on Life Course Outcomes, led by Dr. Paul T. Shattuck. The mission of the Life Course Outcomes program is to pioneer population- and community-level research that empowers people and organizations to improve life course outcomes for those affected by autism by informing and assessing programs, policies and systems. We examine how life unfolds and what things, other than clinical treatments, either help or hinder better outcomes in domains like social participation, employment, education, and quality of life. The person hired will be expected to develop and engage in collaborative and independent research with a major, but not necessarily exclusive, emphasis on autism. There are no required course teaching duties so that Institute faculty can focus on research. However, opportunities can be created for faculty interested in teaching in other Drexel programs.
