Assistant Professor

University of Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh, PA
The Department of Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh is seeking to fill two tenure-track positions at the Assistant Professor level in the area of social psychology, pending budgetary approval. Research specialization for one position is open. For the other position, preference will be given to candidates whose work focuses on health psychology. For both positions, the ability to complement and extend the strengths of the Psychology Department is essential, as is a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching and graduate training.

The Psychology Department (http://www.psychology.pitt.edu) is committed to excellence in research and in teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. The Department has 35 tenure-stream faculty and houses five graduate training programs: Biological and Health, Clinical, Cognitive, Developmental, and Social, as well as cross-program training opportunities. The interdisciplinary nature of psychological science is reflected in both faculty research interests and training opportunities afforded to graduate students.

Faculty in the Psychology Department collaborate with colleagues in several other units at the University of Pittsburgh, including the Learning Research and Development Center, the Center for Neuroscience, the School of Medicine (including Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic), and the School of Education. In addition, faculty participate in several joint enterprises with colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University, including the Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center (http://learnlab.org) and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (http://www.cnbc.cmu.edu).
