Child maltreatment position at Penn State

Hi everyone,

As I’ve just posted, we’ll also be hiring for a second position at Penn State this year. The successful candidate will specialize in research engaging school-based personnel (e.g., teachers, school psychologists, counselors, nurses) to screen, detect, and intervene effectively when confronted with signs of potential child maltreatment. We are particularly interested in hiring a colleague whose research focuses on the detection and reporting of maltreatment of children with or at risk for disabilities. This hire will be made as part of Penn State’s Network on Child Protection and Well-Being, which was recently established following the Sandusky tragedy. The Network is designed in part to bring leading scholars in the country to one institution to better understand, prevent, and treat child abuse and neglect. As such, the Network will provide immediate opportunities for interdisciplinary and translational collaborations for countering child maltreatment. Hires are also being made in other departments across the campus. I’ve included a link to the Network below. Please consider applying.

Best wishes,

Paul
