Position description

The Feinstein International Center at the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, Tufts University, seeks a mid to senior level faculty member with strong expertise in humanitarian systems and policy, governance and research. We anticipate the faculty member will build and lead a robust, interdisciplinary teaching, research, and translational platform to broadly influence the international humanitarian community. The platform should focus on the needs of populations affected by conflict and disaster and how humanitarian systems interact with these needs.  Areas of research could include:

  • Humanitarian access in conflicts and impact on vulnerable populations
  • Remote management and impacts on humanitarian programs and personnel
  • The rising influence of new humanitarian donors
  • The broad humanitarian system, its structural challenges, and its future structure
  • The impact of countering violent extremism on humanitarian assistance
  • Climate change and humanitarian response
  • Urbanization and how it changes disaster preparedness, response, and livelihood
  • Food security and nutrition

We seek candidates whose work is relevant to a wide range of stakeholders in both the public and private sectors, and people of all races, genders, and income levels.
