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. The primary goal of the Department of Psychology is to cover the entire field of basic psychological and clinically relevant research. Department faculty group themselves into four major areas: Clinical, Cognitive/Systems Neuroscience, Developmental, and Social/Personality. Within the area of developmental psychology, we investigate mechanisms underlying optimal growth and developmental change. Our department values interdisciplinary collaborations and open science. We embrace basic as well as translational work with potential for societal impact. Links to apply/view details: Candidates are asked to apply online at by submitting a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, three representative publications, and three statements: (1) research accomplishments and future plans, (2) teaching experience and approach, and (3) personal contributions and/or plans to foster an environment of equity and inclusion for faculty, staff, and students from diverse backgrounds. Our department embraces the values of open and reproducible science, and candidates are strongly encouraged to address in their statements how they have pursued and/or plan to pursue these goals in their work.
