The faculty member will teach at least four courses per year at the undergraduate and graduate level, including a large introductory undergraduate course in nutrition for majors and non-majors (NTR 301), an orientation to Nutrition course (NTR 302), and other courses at the undergraduate/graduate level, based on the programs' needs. Courses may be designed and delivered in face-to-face, on-line, and blended education formats. The position is also expected to serve as undergraduate coordinator of the nutrition degree program (approximately 200-250 majors), which involves curriculum planning and review, responsibility for annual assessment reporting, and involvement with recruiting. This faculty member will advise 50 to 100 undergraduate students per year who have a career interest in nutrition and other health-care professions. The assistant professor will establish their own line of scholarship that is complementary to, but not duplicative of, current nutrition faculty, and is expected to provide opportunities to mentor and engage undergraduate or graduate students in these research opportunities. An emphasis on public health, community nutrition, nutrition education, or the scholarship of teaching and learning is preferred over lab-based research.

The Department, as well as NC State University, are especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their experience, research, teaching and/or service.
