We Are Hiring in Developmental Psychology and Data Science!

We are pleased to announce two open positions at the Assistant Professor rank, one in developmental psychology and one at the intersection of data science and psychology. Applications are due in October and the positions will start in the fall of 2020.

  • Developmental Psychology: The University of Oregon’s Department of Psychology invites applications for a tenure-track position in developmental psychology, broadly defined. The appointment will be at the Assistant Professor level and will begin in Fall 2020. The competitive candidate (Ph.D. required at the time of appointment) will have an active research program and be capable of outstanding research and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. We are especially interested in candidates who will contribute to the collaborative, interdisciplinary, and growing community of researchers across campus with interests in developmental science. We particularly welcome applications from scholars who are from populations historically underrepresented in the academy, and/or who have experience working with diverse populations.
  • Data Science: For this position we are interested in researchers who develop and/or integrate new, quantitative methods within psychological research. Examples of relevant areas for this search include, but are not limited to: natural language processing; machine learning; network analysis of neural, psychological, or social processes; longitudinal modeling of developmental processes; computational models of human learning, perception, or performance; scientific computing; data visualization; or other modern computational methods and approaches applied in psychological research. The appointment will be at the Assistant Professor level and will begin in Fall 2020.
