The Department of Psychology at Rice University invites applications and nominations for Chair of the department to begin July 1, 2014. In addition to being at the rank of Full Professor with a PhD in Psychology, candidates should exhibit a strong history of research and external funding, as well as a commitment to the highest standards of scholarship, professional activity, faculty engagement and mentorship, and graduate and undergraduate education. Candidates may represent any area of psychology (e.g., cognitive, developmental, social, human factors, industrial-organizational). Previous academic administrative experience is preferred. Over the next several years, the new chair will build the department both through recruitment and ties to other units on campus and off-campus (e.g., Baylor College of Medicine, the University of Texas Health Science Center).
Open until filled; applications sent by December 1, 2013, will assure full consideration.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter and curriculum vitae to Lyn Ragsdale, Dean of Social Sciences, Rice University, 6100 Main St. MS-27, Houston TX, 77005-1827.
