Open Rank (Tenure-Track)
Department of Psychology
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

The Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign invites applications for a full-time tenure-track open-rank position in the area of social psychology. We are particularly interested in candidates with an emphasis on Diversity Science broadly defined. Diversity Science is a broad approach to studying difference (how it manifests, when it matters, why it matters) as well as studying disparities and inequality. This includes, but is not limited to, a focus on difference or equity with regard to race, sex, gender identity, social class, sexual orientation, religion, culture, intersectionality, and other social and economic factors. We welcome applications from a wide variety of scholars.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is a world leader in research, teaching, and public engagement. Faculty in the College create knowledge, address critical societal needs through the transfer and application of knowledge, and prepare students for lives of impact in the state, nation, and globally. To meet these objectives, the College embraces and values diversity and difference through hiring faculty candidates who can contribute through their research, teaching, and/or service to the diversity and excellence of the Illinois community.

Successful candidates are expected to establish and maintain an active and independent research program, teach effectively at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and provide service to the department, the university, and the profession. A Ph.D. in Psychology or other discipline broadly related to diversity science is required prior to the start date. The target start date is August 16, 2023, but is negotiable. Salary is commensurate with rank and qualifications. To apply, create your candidate profile through and submit application materials. Applicants must submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, up to 3 representative publications, and teaching and research statements. A diversity, equity, and inclusion statement is also required. The statement should include information about the applicant’s understanding of these issues, their activities to date, and their goals and plans for advancing equity and inclusion if hired as a faculty member at the University of Illinois.

For Assistant Professor candidates: Contact information for three professional references will be requested 1-2 business days after application submission, and references should be prepared to provide letters by the application deadline.
For Associate/Full Professor candidates: After a review of the research record, the search committee may then contact the applicant to solicit letters of reference.

Only applications submitted through the University of Illinois Job Board will be considered. Full consideration is guaranteed for all applications received by September 30, 2022.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values of the University of Illinois and the Psychology Department. Our excellence can only be fully realized by faculty, students, and staff who share our commitment to these values. Successful candidates for our faculty positions will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to advancing equity and inclusion.
