Psychology Job Wiki 2017-2018

Welcome to the Psychology Job Wiki. This site is intended to provide timely information to applicants about the status of academic job searches occurring in 2017-2018 in all areas of psychology. The wikis for previous years are still available. Job ads can be found in several places; here is a list of Job Ad Websites. 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 How to Use this Wiki section to become familiar with how the wiki works. If you need help or have questions, please feel free to send a message to vd (the site administrator) through the wikidot messaging system. Good luck to all job-seekers!

Changes for 2017-2018

  • It will be assumed by default that a job is for an Assistant Professor unless indicated otherwise (e.g., Associate/Full Professor).
  • Due to relentless spam, the Discussion Forum will remain inaccessible until a solution or alternative is found.
  • Given that job ads can no longer be posted in the forum, please link to other websites where the ads are posted (APA, APS, Chronicle, HigherEdJobs, etc.).
