Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track) Position:
Social and Health Psychology

The Department of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University is seeking applicants who work at the intersection of Social or Personality and Health Psychology for a tenure track Assistant Professor position. We are interested in candidates with a strong grounding in psychological theory, cutting-edge methods and research programs, high-quality teaching, and strong statistical training and quantitative skills. We place high value on programmatic, theory-driven research that contributes to the substantive advancement of social or personality and health psychology. We also value open science efforts and strive for replicable and reproducible research.

For serious consideration, application materials should emphasize how applicants:

  • work at the intersection of social or personality and health psychology
  • have a strong conceptual grounding for one’s work in psychological theory
  • have a track-record of experience with study design, data collection, and analysis

Carnegie Mellon is a highly supportive environment for scientists seeking to span disciplines and employ multiple methodologies in their research. We are committed to building a diverse faculty within an increasingly broad university community. We believe that diversity of researchers, of research questions (at the intersection of social or personality and health psychology), and of research populations improves our field and our department, and we are actively seeking to improve and represent those values. Accordingly, we strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, veterans, and other underrepresented groups, and/or from researchers whose work involves these populations. We also work actively to meet the needs of dual-career couples. Carnegie Mellon offers highly competitive salaries and start-up packages in an attractive and highly livable urban environment.

To be considered for positions beginning Fall 2020, applications must be received no later than October 1, 2019. To apply to this position, please see: http://apply.interfolio.com/63210
