The Department of Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in the field of Quantitative Psychology, to begin July 2013. This position is intended to further broaden the existing strengths of our program, particularly in the areas of advanced measurement, multilevel and latent variable models, and the analysis of longitudinal data. We welcome applications from individuals who specialize in these or any area of quantitative psychology; we are particularly interested in those who study the interface between experimental design, statistics, and computer science, with potential applications in the intersection between psychology and the neurosciences (e.g., the design and analysis of high-dimensional relations between genes, brain structures, and behavior). However, any quantitatively-related area of study will be closely considered. Applicants should have a Ph.D. by July, 2013, in Quantitative Psychology or a closely related field. Candidates should show clear evidence of research productivity along with the potential to develop an independent program of research and a significant commitment to teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. To apply go to unc -dot- peopleadmin -dot- com -slash- postings -slash- 8418 to submit curriculum vitae, a personal statement describing qualifications and research and teaching interests, and up to five reprints. Four letters of reference should be sent to Patrick Curran, Chair of the Quantitative Psychology Search Committee, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Department of Psychology CB #3270, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3270. We will begin review of applications on November 15, 2012, and will continue to accept applications until the position is filled.

The University and the Department have strong commitments to the principle of diversity, and we specifically invite and encourage applications from members of ethnic and racial minorities.
