Responsibilities:

The New School for Social Research and Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts seek applicants for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor within the Department of Psychology to begin Fall 2018.

We are seeking applicants who complement existing research strengths in cognitive, social, or developmental psychology.

The successful candidate should have an innovative program of research with potential to attract external funding. Our teaching load is the equivalent of five courses per year which consists of four classroom courses, and includes both graduate and undergraduate teaching, with the usual non-teaching duties; the fifth course is comprised of dissertation supervision. We seek candidates with promise of excellence in research and teaching.
