Sally Mathis Hartwig Professor in Gerontological Nursing

The University of Iowa College of Nursing seeks an established senior faculty member in gerontological nursing to support the mission of the College and provide leadership and mentorship in research and gerontological initiatives through collegiate and interdisciplinary aging opportunities including the Csomay Center of Gerontological Excellence, Center on Aging, and the Aging Mind and Brain Initiative.  The candidate will join a dynamic faculty within a collaborative research University with excellence in aging research.  Excellent interdisciplinary collaboration potential also exists through the Interdisciplinary Geriatric Education Center, Institute for Clinical and Translation Science, National Health Law and Policy Resource Center, Public Policy Center, and Institute of Neuroscience and other health care networks.

Cross cutting approaches include genomics/omics/biomarkers, health information technology and community engagement.

The position will contribute to the leadership team in College initiatives in gerontological nursing in teaching, research and service, including mentoring faculty and doctoral and post-doctoral students for successful scholarship and research programs.  Candidates with well-established programs of research in gerontological nursing and a sustained record of extramural support are encouraged to apply. Candidates eligible for appointment as Full Professor will be considered.  The college is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in achieving our education, research, service, and practice missions, as demonstrated through our Pillars of Diversity.
