Kent State University

Kent, OH
Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Health Psychology and Social Psychology The Department of Psychology at Kent State University seeks applicants for two tenure-track faculty positions beginning in Fall 2013, pending budgetary approval. One position is in Health Psychology, another position is in Social Psychology. A Ph.D. in psychology is required. Successful candidates for either position will be expected to develop a productive research program, seek extramural funding, and exhibit a commitment to teaching graduate and undergraduate courses. Our faculty are highly productive researchers who have demonstrated success in attracting substantial federal funding in support of their research programs. Our department is ranked by the National Science Foundation as one of the top 100 psychology departments in extramural research funding. Health Psychology The position in Health Psychology will have a program of research in health psychology, broadly defined (e.g., research linking psychological processes with biological processes and health outcomes, psycho-social research regarding major diseases and chronic health problems, such as coronary heart disease, cancer, obesity, AIDS, chronic pain, etc.). Our department’s health research is facilitated by strong, collaborative ties with many local hospitals. Current faculty interests range from pediatric to geriatric populations and a variety of psychological processes and health conditions. The candidate will contribute to graduate training in our experimental Ph.D. program, and should complement the existing research programs of our health psychology faculty. Social Psychology The position in Social Psychology will have a program of research in social psychology, broadly defined. We will consider all applicants, but particularly welcome those with expertise in quantitative methods. The department’s social psychology program is unique in its focus on health, but candidates need not have interests in health. Candidates with expertise in quantitative methods are expected to contribute to our department’s graduate minor program in quantitative methods, and Kent State University’s Coordinating Center for Quantitative Methodology, a campus-wide initiative to advance quantitative methodology training across the university. Further information about the department is available on the website http://www.kent.edu/cas/psychology. Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2012 and will continue until the positions are filled. All applicants will automatically be considered for both positions depending on research interests. Send application materials, including statements of research and teaching interests, curriculum vitae, copies of publications and other supporting materials, summaries of teaching evaluations, and three letters of recommendation by email to psysearch@kent.edu; or by mail to: Chair, Psychology Search Committee Department of Psychology Kent State University P.O.
