University of North Carolina at Greensboro--Cognitive Psychology or Cognitive Neuroscience

The Department of Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro invites applications for a tenure-track position in Cognitive Psychology or Cognitive Neuroscience (Assistant Professor Level), to begin August 1, 2016.

The Department of Psychology consists of 23 full-time faculty and offers a BA and BS in psychology, an MA in General Experimental Psychology, and the Ph.D. in clinical, cognitive, developmental and social psychology (See for more information).

We are seeking someone to join an active and collaborative research department. Candidates must demonstrate strong potential for securing external funding. All applicants should have a clear commitment to graduate and undergraduate teaching and show evidence of a strong independent research program.

We are especially interested in people whose research complements the existing faculty’s research interests, which in the cognitive program includes human memory, executive control, metacognition, and individual differences (and which in the broader department include social cognition, cognitive development, and cognitive risk for psychopathology). Psychology supports strong research resources, such as a diverse research participation pool, equipment and systems for a wide array of research methods (e.g., eye-tracking, ERP, ESM), and a research-dedicated neuroimaging facility.

UNCG is especially proud of the diversity of its student body and we seek to attract an equally diverse applicant pool for this position. We are strongly committed to increasing faculty diversity.

Candidates must hold or anticipate a Ph.D. by August 1, 2016.

Review of applications will begin on November 4, 2015, and will continue until the position is filled.

More information may be obtained from Dr. Michael Kane, Chair of the Cognitive Search committee (email: [email protected]).

Applicants should submit all materials electronically (to apply, visit and click on “Faculty”). Applicants should submit a cover letter, a vita, a detailed description of their research program (Research Statement), up to five representative publications (Other Documents), and a statement of teaching interests (Teaching Philosophy).

Applicants are asked to provide the names, email addresses, and phone numbers of at least three (3) References, in the References section of the electronic application. These References will be solicited by the UNCGjobsearch system via email, and asked to provide a confidential Letter of Reference/Recommendation on behalf of the applicant. This will occur as soon as the applicant successfully submits the application and receives a confirmation number from the UNCGjobsearch system.
