  • Faculty Position Tenure Track Ergonomics


    The Department of Environmental Health invites applications for a tenure
    track position in the area of ergonomics/human factors at the Assistant
    Professor level. The department has a multidisciplinary program at both the
    M.S. and Ph.D. levels. Faculty members work and collaborate in the areas of
    industrial hygiene, biostatistics, health physics, epidemiology and public
    health, environmental and mechanistic toxicology, risk assessment, and
    cancer biology. The industrial hygiene program, within which this position
    would be housed, is nationally/internationally recognized and ABET-RAC
    accredited. The department has a large baccalaureate program in
    environmental health, and elements of ergonomics/human factors are infused
    into this undergraduate curriculum with an opportunity to expand that

    The successful candidate will be expected to participate in ongoing teaching
    (graduate and undergraduate levels) and to expand the content of course
    offerings in ergonomics/human factors as opportunities and the demands of
    practice change. The preferred candidate would have a basic familiarity with
    extramural research support mechanisms and be poised to create an
    independent research program. Existing programs include the following:
    Colorado Injury Control Research Center, the Occupational Health Psychology
    Program, the Human Performance Laboratory (Health and Exercise Science), the
    Occupational Therapy Program, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and
    the High Plains Center for Agricultural Health and Safety provide rich
    opportunities for collaboration.

    The department supports a nationally accredited program at the undergraduate
    level in environmental health. This position will support ergonomics/human
    factors instruction in the undergraduate program and offer core classes in
    the graduate curriculum. However, candidate expertise in the areas of
    injury prevention, person-machine interface, task or tool analysis and
    design, biomechanics, safety programming, risk assessment, physical hazards
    assessment/control, or other areas of relevance to a comprehensive
    department of environmental health is highly desirable. The successful
    candidate will be expected to mentor and direct graduate students at the MS
    and PhD level and to participate in devising means to actively include
    undergraduate students into ongoing research/investigation efforts across
    multidisciplinary programs.

    The department has an applied program emphasis that provides training to
    produce professionals capable of independently directing programs in
    occupational/environmental health. The department currently has a NIOSH
    training grant to support graduate students. The department holds a
    cooperative agreement with OSHA to provide technical assistance to small
    high hazard businesses, and also holds a major grant from NIOSH as a center
    of agricultural health and safety. Faculty members have ample opportunity
    to participate in outreach service programs, and to work in applied field
    research through these programs.

    The candidate must possess an earned doctoral degree in human factors,
    ergonomics, industrial hygiene or a closely related field. Candidates should
    send a curriculum vitae; a statement of professional goals relative to this
    position; and the names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of
    three references familiar with their professional work and experience.
    filled by a qualified applicant. All applications should be forwarded to:
