In addition, the candidate will build a specialization within the doctoral and master’s programs leading to the awarding of a Master’s degree in Quantitative Psychology for a small number of students. The candidate will also collaborate with investigators within the department and university on applications for federal, state, and private grant funding, and will provide statistical consultation and related assistance in the implementation of successful awards. Collaboration with other departments (e.g., Mathematics) and colleges (e.g., Public Health, Computing and Informatics) at Drexel is desirable. In addition, the successful candidate will teach undergraduate and graduate courses, mentor students at all levels, and contribute to curriculum development and program planning across doctoral, Master’s, and undergraduate programs.
