The Department of Psychology at NDSU has a 9-month tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant professor available Fall 2019 (August 16, 2019 start date). The position is 45% research, 45% teaching, and 10% service. We are especially interested in candidates whose research interests address risk factors or evidence-based treatment of medical or mental health issues. Successful candidates will have expertise in quantitative methodology and be expected to offer graduate-level courses on advanced statistical methods (e.g., generalized linear mixed effects models/structural-causal models, Bayesian analyses). Successful candidates will also have a record of research productivity and experience pursuing and/or obtaining external funding consistent with their career stage. Finally, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to one of the College of Science and Mathematics Research Themes (https://www.ndsu.edu/scimath/csm_research_themes/). Candidates are expected to supervise MS and PhD students, teach 3 courses per year, and advise undergraduate students. The position is competitive with regard to start-up funds, space, and salary.
Applicants must submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, a statement of teaching philosophy, and contact information for three professional references. Please upload this information in a single PDF file under the heading “Other Document 1” as you apply. Review of applications will begin December 3, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.

The minimum qualifications for the position are; 1) PhD degree in Psychology or a related discipline by anticipated start date, 2) evidence of research productivity, 3) ability to teach graduate-level courses in quantitative methodology, and 4) effective written and oral communication skills.
Priority will be given to candidates who can provide evidence of productivity on high-quality translational health research and who have excellent potential for and/or experience pursuing or obtaining external funding.
