The Department of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University anticipates making a cluster of tenure-track appointments at the Assistant Professor level over the coming years. For the present hiring cycle we are particularly seeking applicants who work at the intersection of Social and Health Psychology. 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 and health psychology. The Department of Psychology has particularly strong ties to social and decision sciences, the Tepper School of Business, human-computer interaction, machine learning, and computer science.
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, and we strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, veterans, and other underrepresented groups. 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.
Completed applications will begin to be reviewed immediately and will be considered on a rolling basis. Interviews will start in late summer. To be considered for positions beginning Fall 2019, applications must be received no later than October 31, 2018.
