College of Arts and Sciences – Psychology Department

The Department of Psychology at the University of Miami (UM) invites applications for a full-time, tenure-eligible, or tenure-track faculty member to join our department’s Adult Division in August 2022. The specific area within psychological or clinical science is open. Specific area(s) of focus could include, but are not limited to, basic research on affect and cognition; intergroup processes; mechanistic studies of treatment or mental health disparities; and/or studies of how affect and cognition intersect with social processes. We are open to a wide range of specialties, including experimental, quantitative, neuroscience, or clinical science as applied to examine psychological mechanisms underlying human behavior. Priority will be given to outstanding scholars who will contribute effectively to both the undergraduate and graduate teaching and mentoring programs of the University.

The Adult Division within the Psychology Department includes faculty who conduct mechanistic work in the areas of emotion, cognition, social factors, and psychopathology. We use a broad range of experimental, psychophysiological, neuroscience, evolutionary, social, quantitative, and treatment[1]development methodologies. The department as a whole values collaboration within and across divisions. Our Neuroimaging Facility is available to researchers working in the area of human neuroscience and/or wishing to collaborate with faculty members who do so. As a group, we are committed to the idea that an understanding of emotion, cognition, and behavior at a basic level fosters a better understanding of problem behavior across the lifespan.

The Department of Psychology is a vibrant community that includes clinical and psychological sciences faculty across Adult, Child, Health, and Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Divisions. The mission of the Department is to acquire, advance, and disseminate knowledge within the Psychological and Biobehavioral Sciences, supported through excellent graduate programs and state-of-the-art facilities. We value a balance across academic domains, including teaching, research and service to the community. The department values and celebrates cultural diversity of all kinds, and has an engaged and active Diversity and Equity Committee. The greater Miami community is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse metropolitan areas in the country, positioning our department to be a key contributor to furthering multi-cultural and ethnic studies in basic and clinical psychological science.
