A job for a personality psychologist

August has been a busy month for me, with lots of travel and now preparations for a sabbatical. Hoping to pick up the blogging pace after I’m resettled. In the meantime (and apropos of an earlier post and commenter’s request for info about finding academic jobs in personality psychology), here is an ad for a job at Washington University at St. Louis:

WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY IN ST. LOUIS, Department of Psychology is seeking candidates for an Assistant Professor position in the area of personality psychology with strong quantitative skills, to teach psychology or related courses, conduct research, publish in peer-reviewed journals, advise students and participate in faculty meetings.  A primary teaching responsibility for the candidate will be in the graduate statistics curriculum in the psychology department. Any area of personality psychology will be considered, though preference will be given to candidates with a strong quantitative background.  The primary qualification for this position is a doctorate and a demonstrated excellence in research and teaching.  We especially encourage applications from women and members of minority groups.

Please email a curriculum vitae, reprints, a short statement of research interests and teaching experience, and three letters of reference to Cheri B. Casanova at cbcasano@wustl.edu.  The Search Committee will begin the formal review process Nov. 1, 2010; applications will be accepted until the position is filled.  Washington University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.  Employment eligibility verification is required upon hire.

Note that WUSTL has another job in behavior genetics, which may overlap substantially with personality psychology.
