Position openings

Assistant Professor
Industrial and Organizational Psychology

The Department of Psychological Sciences at Kansas State University invites applications for the position of Assistant Professor of industrial and organizational psychology. This is a tenure-track position and the salary is competitive. ABDs with evidence of substantial progress towards completion will be considered, but a doctoral degree in industrial and organizational psychology or closely related field is required at the time of appointment.

The position will be available for the fall semester of 2016. Responsibilities will include teaching two courses per semester (graduate and undergraduate), establishing an ongoing program of research with the potential for external funding, mentoring graduate and undergraduate students in research, academic advising of undergraduates, and engaging in service activities supporting the department, college, and university.

Candidates should have a strong research program, as evidenced by publications and presentations, and demonstrated excellence in teaching, as evidenced by teaching evaluations. A strong commitment to teaching and mentoring students from a diverse population is expected.  Teaching interests and expertise that complement those of the current faculty, particularly in “industrial” topics, are desirable, but not mandatory.  Research interests within the domain of industrial and organizational psychology are open.

Information about the Department, its undergraduate and graduate programs, and faculty can be found at http://www.k-state.edu/psych/.

The completed application must include a cover letter, a statement of professional objectives, vita, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and reprints/preprints.  Submit all materials to psychjobapp@ksu.edu. Three letters of recommendation should also be sent to the same email address.  Direct questions to Dr. Patrick A. Knight, Department of Psychological Sciences, 492 Bluemont Hall, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506  (knight@ksu.edu, 785-532-0612).

The search will remain open until the position is filled.

In accordance with Kansas Board of Regents policy, the University is required to run a background check on the final candidate. Kansas State University is an Equal Opportunity employer and actively seeks diversity among its employees.
