Position Description

The Psychology Department (https://psychology.ucsc.edu/) at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an Assistant (tenure-track) or Associate (tenured) Professor in Quantitative Psychology. The chosen candidate could have a PhD in Quantitative Psychology or in another field of Psychology as long as they have expertise in quantitative methods and demonstrated excellence in teaching statistics at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The chosen candidate will be expected to lead the graduate program’s quantitative curriculum. This includes teaching the program’s first-year statistics series, which is a 2-quarter sequence on univariate and multivariate methods. We seek a colleague who is an expert at statistics and quantitative methodology but who also understands the value of qualitative methods. The candidate should have an interest in collaborating with researchers in cognitive, developmental, and/or social psychology, which are the three graduate areas in the department. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community through their research, teaching, and service, and who will add to the department’s contributions to campus initiatives in data science and critical data studies.

UC Santa Cruz values diversity, equity, and inclusion and is committed to hiring faculty who will work to advance these values. UC Santa Cruz is a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) and an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) with a high proportion of first-generation students. We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing historically oppressed groups in higher education (as evidenced by life experiences and educational background) and who can clearly articulate participation in equity and diversity advancement efforts with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, and service towards building an equitable and scholarly environment. Activities promoting equity and inclusion at UC Santa Cruz will be recognized as important university service during the faculty promotion process. More information can be found: https://apo.ucsc.edu/diversity.html

The chosen candidate will be expected to sign a statement representing that they are not the subject of any ongoing investigation or disciplinary proceeding at their current academic institution or place of employment, nor have they in the past ten years been formally disciplined at any academic institution/place of employment. In the event the candidate cannot make this representation, they will be expected to disclose in writing to the hiring Dean the circumstances surrounding any formal discipline that they have received, as well as any current or ongoing investigation or disciplinary process of which they are the subject. (Note that discipline includes a negotiated settlement agreement to resolve a matter related to substantiated misconduct.)
