The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University seeks faculty (or nominations of faculty) for endowed professorships at the rank of Associate or Full Professor (soon-to-be-tenured Assistant Professors with exceptional records of scholarship can also be considered) in any discipline who focus on social cognition or political psychology. We seek scholars from a range of disciplines examining the cognitive and psychological foundations of social and collective behavior, especially as it relates to questions about civic engagement and inclusive discourse across the globe or in the U.S. This search is part of a broader initiative at Johns Hopkins University to expand expertise in social cognition within the Department of Psychological and Brian Sciences and in other departments. Faculty hired to the SNF Agora Institute, however, can sit in any department in the university. The SNF Agora Institute is a new, $150M multi-disciplinary initiative that integrates research, teaching, and practice to strengthen global democracy by improving and expanding civic engagement and inclusive dialogue, and by supporting inquiry that leads to real-world change. Housed in the university’s Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the SNF Agora Institute at JHU will serve as a leading forum bringing together experts from a range of fields—including but not limited to political science, sociology, history, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, and ethics. All SNF Agora faculty will be full members in a department at Johns Hopkins University and at the SNF Agora Institute. Successful candidates should be established scholars with a substantial record of research and publication, or may be rising scholars of exceptional quality. All candidates should demonstrate an interest in the mission of the SNF Agora Institute. Applicants should apply online and submit a cover letter specifying an appropriate department for their appointment, a research statement, curriculum vitae, and two to three representative publications. Any nominations should be emailed to SNF Agora Institute, at email@example.com. Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2019 and continue until the positions are filled. Appointments will commence on July 1, 2020. Johns Hopkins is committed to active recruitment of a diverse faculty and student body. The university is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer of women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities and encourages applications from these and other protected group members. Consistent with the university’s goals of achieving excellence in all areas, we will assess the comprehensive qualifications of each applicant.
