Psychology Job Wiki 2021-2022

Welcome to the Psychology Job Wiki. This crowdsourced site is intended to provide information to applicants about the status of academic job searches occurring in the 2021-2022 academic year in all areas of psychology. The wikis for previous years are still available. Job ads can be found in several places (see this list). As information about a search becomes available, you are encouraged to post it anonymously below. If this is your first time visiting the wiki, please read through the instructions to become familiar with how it works. If you need help or have questions, please contact vd through the wikidot messaging system. If the "Edit" or "History" buttons do not work, make a Wikidot account and sign into it; they will work as long as you are signed in. Good luck to all job-seekers!


  • Ranks: Tenure-track jobs are assumed by default to be at the rank of Assistant Professor. Rank only has to be indicated if that is not the case (e.g., Associate/Full Professor).
  • Dates: Include the year in all dates (e.g., 10/1/21 for October 1, 2021).
  • Deadlines: Omit "open until filled," which will be assumed by default.
  • Duplication: Avoid duplicate listings. Post a job in the most relevant section, then cross-reference it as needed.
  • Strikethrough: Use strikethrough formatting for concluded or cancelled searches; do not delete the wiki entry.
  • If you can, please help keep the wiki orderly and properly formatted, and remove any spam you notice.
