The University of Connecticut (UConn) School of Nursing is seeking applications to fill one full-time, 11-month, Associate/Full Professor (Tenure Track) or Associate/Full Clinical Professor (Non-Tenure-Track) position. This person will serve as the Director for the undergraduate pre-licensure program. Appointment at the associate or full professor level will depend on the qualifications of the applicant.

The School of Nursing’s base is located on UConn’s main campus in Storrs, a mixed suburban/rural setting in the rolling hills of eastern Connecticut. Storrs is less than 45 minutes from the capital city of Hartford with additional performing arts, museums, and fine restaurants. It lies approximately 2 hours by car from historic Boston, the seashores of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Cape Cod, and the Green Mountains of Vermont with excellent skiing. Direct bus service from the campus to New York City (approximately 3 hours away) is available on a daily basis. The climate is characterized by four full seasons and is especially beautiful in the fall. Connecticut has outstanding public schools and social services and is the home to multiple institutions of higher learning with national and international reputations.
Under the direction of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, the faculty member will be responsible to lead, organize, direct, and assure continuous quality improvement of key functional areas and missions related to the School’s undergraduate 4-year pre-licensure program.

The Director will fulfill all components of the faculty role (Research, Teaching, and Service) with committed time for the Director responsibilities.
