Job Announcement: Full Time Quantitative Psychologist and Statistician (non-tenure track)

The Health and Human Performance (Dr. David Creswell, PI) and Behavioral Health Laboratories (Dr. Kasey Creswell, PI) in the Department of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University invite applications for a full-time quantitative psychologist/statistician special faculty position, to begin Summer or Fall 2022. The initial appointment will be for 3 years, with additional years contingent upon performance. The candidate will be expected to develop data analysis pipelines on studies and trials in the labs, collaborate with lab members on coauthored papers by conducting data processing and analysis pipelines, and write collaborative grant applications. The candidate will also be expected to teach one advanced quantitative data analysis course (e.g., multi-level modeling) per year in the department of psychology. This is a non-tenure track special faculty position focused on supporting and collaborating on lab-driven research.

The position is at the PhD level for a quantitative psychologist/statistician with expertise in modeling intensive longitudinal data.  Competitive candidates will have expertise in topics such as big data, ecological momentary assessment (EMA) and ambulatory assessments, small group data, multilevel and growth curve modeling, structural equation modeling, and power analyses of nested data. They will also have significant experience and passion for collaborative research, and experience with statistical platforms or languages that might include:  R, MPlus, STATA, SAS, SPSS, and Python.  This position offers full benefits, and pay will be competitive and commensurate with experience.  There is an in-person expectation for this job at the Pittsburgh-based Carnegie Mellon University campus (although there is flexibility at initial appointment).
