Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Quantitative Psychology University of California, USA


The University of California is creating a dynamic new university campus and campus community in Merced, California, which opened in September 2005 as the tenth campus of the University of California and the first American research university built in the 21st century. In keeping with the mission of the University to provide teaching, research and public service of the highest quality, UC Merced will be providing new educational opportunities at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral levels through three academic schools Engineering; Natural Sciences; and, Social Sciences, Humanities and the Arts.

The School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts invites applications for three faculty positions in Quantitative Psychology: two Assistant Professor (tenure-track) positions and one Assistant Professor (tenure-track), Associate Professor (tenured), or Full Professor (tenured) position. Candidates in all areas of Quantitative Psychology are encouraged to apply, but we are particularly interested in applicants who embrace both Bayesian and frequentist perspectives. Examples of possible research areas include psychometrics, data mining, big data, dynamical systems, intensive longitudinal analysis, functional data analysis, fMRI, social networks, and nonparametric statistics. Those who can fill in gaps of current faculty's expertise and those who can strengthen the current expertise are equally welcome. This is a unique opportunity for an individual to join the faculty at the newest University of California campus and to engage in long-term program building. We seek outstanding scholars who will establish and maintain creative research programs; participate in creating a multi-faculty specialization in Quantitative Psychology at UC Merced; participate actively in the development of innovative interdisciplinary programs and research; and, teach effectively at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Application deadline: 17 October 2017
