Application Deadline: October 15, 2019

The Department of Psychology at the University of Florida (UF) seeks applications to fill two Assistant Professor positions in psychology, beginning January 1, 2020 or August 16, 2020. These are full-time, nine-month, tenure-accruing positions. In 2019, UF was ranked the 7th best public university in the United States by US News and World Report, with exceptional research, teaching, and a university-wide commitment to diversity. The Department of Psychology has five established research and training areas in behavior analysis, behavioral and cognitive neuroscience, counseling, developmental, and social psychology. One position is intended for someone who will join the Department’s APA accredited doctoral training program in counseling psychology. The other position may be associated with any of the Department’s five research and training areas. For both positions, we are actively recruiting faculty who can contribute to our department mission of diversity. Applicants should demonstrate expertise in prevention science, strong methodological and analytical research skills, successful multidisciplinary collaborations, and success in disseminating findings. As faculty members, applicants will be expected to maintain an outstanding program of research with high potential for external funding, teach psychology graduate and undergraduate courses, advise students, and provide service to the institution. Applicants for the area-open position may also have this focus but could also have a broader prevention science specialization such as but not limited to innovative methodology, developmentally informed prevention, social and biological underpinnings of mental health, and social justice and health equity. The Department of Psychology is dedicated to promoting diversity, multiculturalism, and inclusion. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity, inclusivity, and excellence of the academic community.
