Assistant Professor - Developmental Cognitive Science

HARVARD UNIVERSITY. The Department of Psychology anticipates making a tenure-track appointment at the assistant professor level to begin July 1, 2019. 

We seek candidates with expertise in developmental cognitive science, broadly conceived.  Our interest is less in specific topic areas or methods than in innovation and excellence in the applicant’s research program.  For instance, in addition to experimental behavioral research on human children, successful candidates might employ cognitive neuroscience, animal cognition, cross-cultural ethnographic work or computational modeling, among approaches.  Topics of study might include perception, action planning, conceptual representation, social cognition, reasoning, decision-making or language, among other topics.  We seek candidates whose research complements research already going on in the Department, taking it in clearly new directions. The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2019.  Candidates at all levels are encouraged to apply.

 

 
Candidates must have a strong doctoral record and have completed their Ph.D.  Candidates should have demonstrated a promise of excellence in both research and teaching.  Teaching duties will include offerings at both undergraduate and graduate levels. 

 

Please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, up to three representative reprints, and names and contact information of three to five references (three letters of recommendation are required, and the application is complete only when all three letters have been submitted) to http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/8336.

 


Questions regarding this position can be addressed to spelke@wjh.harvard.edu.  The committee will consider completed applications starting immediately and on a rolling basis until September 15. Interviews will be conducted in October and November.

 


We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions or any other characteristic protected by law.
