Start Date: August 16, 2019
Application Deadline: until a suitable candidate is identified
We seek scholars whose programs of research focus on reducing racial/ethnic disparities and increasing access, equity, and opportunities for system-involved youth. Candidates should demonstrate a history of community-based, culturally relevant approaches to promote equity within the juvenile justice and child welfare systems and/or attention to factors that place youth at risk for systems involvement (e.g. trauma, poverty, victimization, exposure to adverse life events). We are particularly interested in scholars whose work centers on reducing the disproportionate representation of youth of color in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems, and/or addressing individual, family and community factors associated with youth being involved in one or both systems. Successful candidates will expand our faculty’s current expertise in youth development and social justice, and will bring their experience with community-engaged research methods to promote change in policy, programs or practice for diverse system-involved youth and their families.
