The Department of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University is seeking applicants whose work spans Social/Personality and Health Psychology for a tenure track Assistant Professor position. We place high value on programmatic, theory-driven research that contributes to the substantive advancement of social/personality psychology and its implications for health (broadly defined as physical health and/or psychological well-being). We are interested in candidates with a strong grounding in psychological theory, cutting-edge methods and research programs, high-quality teaching, and strong statistical training and quantitative skills. We also value open science efforts that focus on reproducible research.
Application materials should emphasize how applicants:
  • work in social/personality and health psychology

Carnegie Mellon is a highly supportive environment for scientists seeking to span disciplines and employ multiple methodologies in their research. We are committed to building a diverse faculty. We believe that diversity of researchers, of research questions, and of research populations improves our field and our department, and we are actively seeking to improve and represent those values.  Accordingly, we strongly encourage applications from underrepresented groups, including racial and ethnic minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, veterans, and/or from researchers whose work involves these populations. We also work actively to meet the needs of dual-career couples. Carnegie Mellon offers highly competitive salaries and start-up packages in an attractive and highly livable urban environment.
To be considered for positions beginning Fall 2021, interested applicants should submit 1) a one-page cover letter that briefly describes their research, how it relates to social/personality and health psychology, and (optionally) a one-page statement of diversity, 2) a CV, and 3) two representative publications.
