The Department of Psychology at Carleton College invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in Cognitive Psychology beginning September 1, 2013. PhD or its imminent completion is required. The successful candidate should be capable of teaching introductory psychology, a mid-level cognitive course with an accompanying lab, and upper-level courses in area(s) of specialization. We are looking for a cognitive psychologist whose expertise complements cognitive subfields currently represented at Carleton, namely high-level language and memory processes, reasoning, decision-making, and cognitive development. Thus, preferential consideration will be given to candidates with expertise and interests in topics such as perception, attention/working memory/cognitive control, knowledge representation and categorization, and human factors. The teaching load is five courses spread over three 10-week trimesters. Candidates should be engaged in programmatic scholarship that leads to published work and can involve undergraduate students. The department maintains facilities and equipment for cognitive research.
