Please excuse cross-listings, but I am writing to inform you that the University of California, Merced is searching for three faculty members in Quantitative Psychology; two positions at the assistant professor level (tenured-track), and one at the open rank level (i.e., assistant, associate, or full professor).
Candidates in all areas of Quantitative Psychology are encouraged to apply, but we are particularly interested in applicants who embrace both Bayesian and frequentist perspectives. Examples of possible research areas include psychometrics, data mining, big data, dynamical systems, intensive longitudinal analysis, functional data analysis, fMRI, social networks, and nonparametric statistics. Those who can fill in gaps of current faculty's expertise and those who can strengthen the current expertise are equally welcome.
Individuals with a history of and commitment to mentoring students from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. We seek candidates who can serve our unique student body. This year, 76% of our incoming students are first generation college students and 55% are Chicano/Latino. Our next largest ethnic group is Asians, who constitute 18% of our incoming class.
Please feel free to forward this message to any students or colleagues you feel would be interested in the position. Also, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you have about the position.
