The Department of Psychology at Brandeis University invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor position to begin in August, 2013. Exceptional candidates will be considered for a tenured associate professor appointment. We seek an individual who takes a biological or neuroscience approach to social/developmental psychology. The successful candidate will show outstanding promise as a researcher, classroom teacher and research supervisor for undergraduate and graduate students. Teaching responsibilities include undergraduate courses in Social Psychology and Research Methods or Statistics and advanced specialized seminars. Candidates must have an ongoing research program with evidence of, or strong potential for, extramural funding. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, research synopsis, statement of teaching philosophy, three letters of recommendation, and copies of representative scholarly work to: Mr. Phil Gnatowski (ude.siednarb|tang#ude.siednarb|tang), Department of Psychology MS062, Brandies University, Waltham, MA 02453. Review of applications will begin October 1, 2012, and will continue until the position is filled. Brandeis University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer committed to increasing the faculty's diversity. Members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
Does anyone know whether Brandeis looks for candidates in the way that an R1 does, or if it uses more SLAC criteria? I am not sure how to frame my application materials.
This is a pure guess, but given that they have two Ph.D. programs (and this job ad looks to target both), I'd lean towards R1 selection criteria.
