Tenured-Tenure Track Quantitative Psychologist

The School of Psychology of the Georgia Institute of Technology announces a search for a tenure-track faculty member in quantitative psychology with an emphasis on advanced statistical modeling. Rank is open but we have a preference for a candidate at the advanced Assistant Professor or Associate Professor level. Strongest consideration will be given to candidates with expertise in models for intensive within-subject data analysis relevant to addressing questions about behavior in multilevel systems, including dynamical systems modeling, structural equation models for longitudinal and time series data, fMRI data analysis for assessing functional network connectivity, and/or generalized multi-level models, but applications from candidates with interests in other areas of quantitative psychology are welcome. Given existing expertise and research programs in the School of Psychology, candidates will have the opportunity to collaborate with scientists (or have access to data) addressing substantive research questions in cognitive and brain systems, work psychology, applied cognitive psychology, or life-span development.

Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. degree in Psychology or a related field. Candidates for Associate Professor or Full Professor should have a track record of external funding and/or of participating in research teams receiving external grant funds. Applicants should be willing and able to teach graduate courses in advanced statistical methods, such as a seminar in multilevel regression models. The quantitative psychology program is currently composed of five faculty and ten Ph.D. students. It is one of five PhD emphases in the School of Psychology that also includes Cognitive and Brain Science, Cognitive Aging, Engineering Psychology, and Work and Organizational Psychology. The quantitative program values methodological development, innovative scholarship, and cutting-edge applications that contribute to the science of psychology.

The School of Psychology, located within Georgia Tech’s College of Sciences, provides an excellent environment for teaching and innovative research. The School has excellent research facilities, strongly supports collaborative research, and enjoys productive associations with other Universities in the area.
