Scholarship related to nutrition and human health, in the broadest sense, in the context of U.S. community or public health settings should be central to the candidate's research interests.

Commensurate with rank, research excellence should be demonstrated by an active, externally-funded research program as well as by a substantial record of publication in recognized peer-reviewed journals and books.

The successful candidate will teach in the Division's undergraduate and/or graduate program, bring unique expertise and perspectives to the Cornell curriculum, and mentor graduate students within and outside of the Division of Nutritional Sciences.
