Tenure-Track Assistant Professor, Latinx Health and Well-Being (Social/Personality Psychology)

The Department of Psychology at the University of California, Riverside invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position with a specialization in Latinx Health and Well-being in the area of Social/Personality Psychology beginning July 1, 2024.

Applications received by Monday December 4, 2023 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time) will receive full consideration by the review committee.

We seek a social/personality psychologist whose research centers the diversity of Latinx social life, health, and well-being, broadly defined. We particularly seek applicants who study Latinx identity, culture, intersectionality, immigration status/issues, social class, close relationships, coping, emotion and emotion regulation, and/or social support. We are especially enthusiastic about candidates who study health disparities from a strengths-based perspective, focusing on resilience, thriving, and related areas, as they relate to key outcomes of physical health, mental health, or well-being. Importantly, we seek applicants who take a theory-driven and empirically-rigorous psychological approach to these topics, and ideally, one that may also combine an applied or community-based perspective.

Applicants should be committed to excellence in undergraduate and graduate education and interested in teaching courses in Social/Personality psychology, research methodology, and data analysis at the undergraduate and graduate level. Successful applicants will also have the opportunity to contribute to graduate concentrations in diversity and inequality psychology, health and well-being, and quantitative methods. We encourage applicants to familiarize themselves with the unique student body at the University of California, Riverside and highlight synergies with their research and teaching goals.

The Department of Psychology is committed to addressing systemic and institutional barriers faced by underrepresented scholars and researchers. We strongly encourage applicants who represent and/or conduct research in ethnic and racial communities that remain severely underrepresented in psychological science (e.g., Black/African/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islanders) to apply.

The salary range for this position is $74,600 – $97,200. “Off-scale salaries” and other components of pay, i.e., a salary that is higher than the published system-wide salary at the designated rank and step, are offered when necessary to meet competitive conditions.

A Ph.D. in psychology, neuroscience, or a related discipline is required at the time of appointment. Complete applications must include a cover letter, curriculum vita, statements of research and teaching, reprints and preprints, a statement of contributions to diversity, and 3-5 letters of recommendation.

For more information about the position, please contact the Search Committee Chairs, Dr. Brent Hughes (brent.hughes@ucr.edu) and Dr. Jimmy Calanchini (jimmy.calanchini@ucr.edu), Department of Psychology at the University of California, Riverside.
