Job Announcement: Multiple Assistant /Associate Positions in Psychology (tenure track)

Carnegie Mellon University seeks highly qualified applicants to fill multiple tenure-track positions in the Department of Psychology. Appointments will be considered at ranks from assistant to associate professor (including tenured associate). Our department places high value on research that advances understanding of our areas of core strengths and their intersections, including human behavior, cognition, social interaction/relationships, well-being, physical health, language processing, learning/development, and perception. We are particularly interested in applicants whose theoretical approaches and methodologies can link across these strengths, as well as to computational modeling, large-scale and longitudinal data collection, neural foundations, or applications to health/wellness, the learning sciences, or intelligent systems. Joint appointments with related departments may also be considered for appropriate candidates. Applicants to this position may also wish to apply, when area-appropriate, to a Joint Psychology/Neuroscience Institute position (see announcement from the Carnegie Mellon Department of Psychology and Neuroscience Institute: https://apply.interfolio.com/105767 ).
