Psychology Job Wiki 2019-2020

Welcome to the Psychology Job Wiki. This site is intended to provide information to applicants about the status of academic job searches occurring in the 2019-2020 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 send a message to vd (the site administrator) through the wikidot messaging system. Good luck to all job-seekers!

Call for Wiki Administrators

Are you interested in moderating the wiki? Please contact vd through the wikidot messaging system with a brief message indicating why you think you would be a good wiki administrator. The goal is to shift administrative control of the wiki from vd (who has been the sole administrator since 2009) to a group of 3 or 4 people. These are volunteer positions that involve fixing wiki formatting issues when they arise, responding to user questions, and potentially moderating forum posts (if we re-activate the forum).

Changes and Reminders for the 2019-2020 Wiki

  • Sections: By request, some previously combined sections have been separated (e.g., Educational and School Psychology).
  • 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: Please include the year in all dates (e.g., 10/1/19 for October 1, 2019).
  • Space limit: The wiki has a character space limit. If you try to post and get an error message about the limit being reached, please contact vd.
