The National Nurses United (NNU) AFL-CIO, the nation’s largest nurses’ union and professional association, seeks an experienced Educator - Researcher to assist in developing labor oriented educational programs nationwide for Registered Nurses. These are permanent well paying jobs based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Programs will emphasize the political economy of healthcare restructuring and the clinical and technological impacts of healthcare restructuring on both patients and the Registered Nurses who provide their care.

The NNU, AFL-CIO is organizing the movement for Registered Nurse power to transform the market-driven healthcare industry in the United States into a health care system driven by patient needs. The NNU has negotiated the best Registered Nurse (RN) collective bargaining contracts in the nation and was responsible for California’s RN Safe Staffing Law - the first of its kind nationwide. NNU provided critical leadership in the AFL-CIO’s decision to endorse a single-payer healthcare system based on “updating and expanding Medicare benefits” for all Americans.

Educator - Researcher

After appropriate orientation, the Educator will design and teach one day courses on health care restructuring, issues impacting nursing practice and basic principles of political economy for Registered Nurses.

This is not a traditional labor educator position. The ideal Educator Candidate will have:

  • Demonstrated experience at teaching complex global issues of political economy is helpful.
  • Highly desirable attributes include familiarity and a background in political/economy, the epistemological problematic inherent in computerized expert systems and the impact on worker control, workplace power and skill, labor process studies, complex organizational analysis, the philosophy of science generally, and the social aspects of technological design and implementation.
  • Educator positions require an ability and willingness to travel and educate Registered Nurses in a national movement for healthcare justice. Initial training location will be Oakland, CA

Be prepared to submit a Résumé, Cover letter, Writing sample, and an optional Outline of a one day educational workshop when you apply.

The successful candidate will be housed in the academic unit(s) most relevant to their specialization.  Joint appointments are possible.  Part of the successful candidate’s teaching will preferably be for the LGBT Studies Minor and/or the graduate Designated Emphasis in Women, Gender, and Sexuality, which are housed in Gender and Women’s Studies.  The successful candidate will be expected to become a core faculty member of the Cluster and be actively involved in planning Cluster programming and research, as well as sharing responsibility for the administration of the Cluster.  Qualifications include a Ph.D. or equivalent in a relevant field (for example, a J.D. for a law professor) at the time of application, outstanding research accomplishment, and the capacity for distinguished teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.  Applicants should have a demonstrable commitment to building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.  The Cluster is also interested in individuals who may have had non-traditional career paths or who may have taken time off for family reasons (e.g., children, disabled, or elderly), or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academe (e.g., in professional or industry service).

To apply, go to: http://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF00105.  Please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, summary of teaching experience and interests, up to three significant publications or works-in-progress, and the names and e-mail addresses of three references.  Early applications are encouraged.  The deadline for complete applications is January 31, 2013.
