CREATE Director - Associate Professor/Professor

The University of Southern California (USC) seeks a prominent scholar to lead the National Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events (CREATE). CREATE was the first university-based Center of Excellence funded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with a mission to improve the Nation’s decisions to reduce terrorism risks through the advancement of risk and economic science. Now in its ninth year, CREATE has an annual DHS funding base of $3 million plus significant funding from other sources to perform independent research on a broad set of threats to society, including natural disasters.

The Director of CREATE should have an accomplished research record in risk analysis, economics or related fields (e.g., operations research, management science, public policy). Experience with managing an interdisciplinary research center is also important. CREATE is a joint center of the Viterbi School of Engineering and the Sol Price School of Public Policy, and it is expected that the Director will receive a joint tenured or tenure-track faculty appointment, with the primary appointment in the school most closely aligned to the candidate’s field of study.

Applications must include a letter summarizing the candidate’s experience in the designated fields, a curriculum vitae, a one-page statement on current and future research, and names of at least four professional references.
