Tenure Track and Tenured Positions

Posted: Sept. 9, 2010

The School of Nursing invites applicants for tenure track and tenured positions, rank dependent on qualifications and experience. Candidates for Assistant Professor should hold an earned doctorate and a Master's in Nursing. Candidates for Associate or Full Professor should have a record of research funding and teaching excellence at a level appropriate to rank. Successful candidates are expected to teach, develop and/or maintain a research program, and be involved in service to the university, the community, and the profession. We are particularly interested in faculty with licensure as a psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner to direct our family psych/mental health nurse practitioner program. Prior to any appointment, candidates will be asked to submit three letters of recommendation, official college transcripts, and a copy of current RN licensure.

The UT Austin School of Nursing, housed on an academic campus, is a recognized leader in nursing professional education, graduate education, and research. The University of Texas is one of the premier research universities in the world, with numerous renowned colleges and schools, as well as highly regarded departments, centers, and programs.

The School is committed to achieving excellence in undergraduate and graduate education, research, and public service. The resources of the University’s Division of Instructional Innovation and Assessment are available to all faculty and graduate teaching assistants. In addition the School provides faculty development and “best practices in nursing education” forums. The baccalaureate and masters programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

Through our Cain Center for Nursing Research, we offer resources for developing/sustaining a research program, including grant-writing consultation (group and individual), assistance with grant budget preparation, notification of current funding opportunities, assistance with design and analysis, and assistance with Institutional Review Board approval for projects involving human subjects.

The School has been instrumental in providing service to the Austin metropolitan and rural areas by establishing two clinics, the Children’s Wellness Center, a school-based health clinic that provides primary care for approximately 3000 children and their families, and the Family Wellness Center, a primary care facility providing services to low-income, uninsured people in the Austin area. Both clinics are affiliated with CommUnityCare, Austin/Travis County Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), and serve as clinical training and research sites for the School.
