Faculty Vacancy Announcement
Performs teaching, research and guidance duties in area(s) of expertise. Shares responsibility for committee and department assignments including administrative, supervisory, and other functions.

The Graduate Center, CUNY is the focal point for advanced teaching and research at The City University of New York (CUNY), the nation's largest urban public university. With over 35 doctoral and master’s programs of the highest caliber, the Graduate Center fosters pioneering research and scholarship in the arts and sciences and prepares students for careers in universities and the private, nonprofit, and government sectors. The Graduate Center’s commitment to research and scholarship for the public good is exemplified by its more than 30 centers, institutes, and initiatives, including its Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC), a 200,000 square-foot facility in upper Manhattan, designed to promote collaboration among scientists in five areas of global research and innovation: nanoscience, photonics, structural biology, neuroscience, and environmental sciences.

The Graduate Center (GC) benefits from highly ambitious and diverse students and alumni—who in turn teach hundreds of thousands of undergraduates every year. Through its public programs, the Graduate Center enhances New York City’s intellectual and cultural life.

The Ph.D. Program in Psychology at the GC seeks a tenure track faculty member at the Assistant or Associate Professor level specializing in Quantitative Methods beginning Fall 2019. The exact area of the quantitative focus is open, but the candidate’s expertise would optimally complement existing strengths of the Psychology Doctoral Program and other participating programs. The Training Areas in the Psychology Doctoral Program offer research and pedagogical opportunities in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience, Basic and Applied Social Psychology, Clinical Psychology (Forensic and Neuropsychology specialties), Cognitive and Comparative Psychology, Critical Social and Environmental Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Health Psychology and Clinical Science, Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and Psychology and Law.

The successful candidate will teach graduate level courses in both introductory and advanced statistics, graduate quantitative research methods, and substantive topics in the candidate’s area(s) of expertise. The candidate will actively advise and mentor graduate students across multiple research topics. In addition to pursuing their own research interests, the incumbent will have opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration in both research projects and applications for external funding. Although the candidate’s research area is open, research invested in public facing scholarship is consistent with the institution’s commitment to excellence and inclusion.

For Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor:
Ph.D. degree in area(s) of experience or equivalent. Also required are the ability to teach successfully, demonstrated scholarship or achievement, and ability to cooperate with others for the good of the institution.

A preferred candidate should have:
- Ph.D. in Psychology.
- Experience in teaching graduate level statistics, established success in peer-review publishing and external funding, and advising graduate (Master’s and Doctoral) students.
- An interest in working in an interdisciplinary academic community and committed to a central goal of the GC: public scholarship for the public good.
- Experience working with graduate students from diverse backgrounds.
