Job Details

The Department of Psychology at Colorado State University and the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging (CHSCHA) at Colorado State University invite applications for a tenure-track position in the Department of Psychology and affiliated with CHSCHA. This position is at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in August 2022. The successful candidate is expected to demonstrate excellence in teaching, clinical practice and research. We welcome candidates with a wide range of research expertise in human neuropsychology research, especially a focus on dementia and related disorders (e.g., Alzheimer’s Disease Dementia, Vascular Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease Dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, mild cognitive impairment, etc.). Candidates should be able to teach undergraduate and graduate-level coursework in neuropsychology, biological psychology, and specialty courses related to their area of research interest. They will also be expected to participate in the interdisciplinary CHSCHA at CSU.

Post-doctoral research experience is preferred. The ideal candidate will have a research focus in aging, age-related changes in cognitive abilities, strategies/interventions related to resilience in cognitive aging, and/or dementia. The ideal candidate will also demonstrate expertise in neuropsychological assessment and/or intervention techniques and will have completed an internship in clinical neuropsychology. If not already licensed, the candidate should show evidence that they are on course to become licensed within the next 3 years. Candidates with a clear and consistent record of publication focused on aging and/or dementia will be preferred over candidates whose publication records are primarily outside of aging.

Interested applicants must submit a cover letter,  a current curriculum vitae, 3-5 preprints/reprints, a statement of research interest, a statement of clinical experience and interests as well as licensure or license-eligible status as a psychologist in the state of Colorado, a statement of teaching interests and evidence of teaching effectiveness, statement of your commitment to diversity and inclusion, and a list of professional references.   Referees for finalists will be sent an email requesting them to upload a letter of recommendation via an online portal (using the contact information provided by the applicant). References will not be contacted without prior notification of candidates.   The full job description and application can be found here:  To ensure full consideration, apply by January 24, 2022, by 11:59 pm MST.

CSU is an EO/EA/AA employer and conducts background checks on all final candidates.


The Department of Psychology is in CSU’s College of Natural Sciences along with seven other departments: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics. The Psychology Department serves approximately 1000 undergraduate majors and 100 graduate students, with approximately 30 full-time faculty members distributed across five doctoral programs: (1) Applied Social and Health Psychology, (2) Cognitive Neuroscience, (3) Cognitive Psychology, (4) Counseling Psychology, and (5) Industrial/Organizational Psychology. The Department also houses the Tri-Ethnic Center for Prevention Research, a University-designated program of research and scholarly excellence that concentrates on social problems that affect rural areas; and the Colorado Injury Control Research Center which is funded by CDC and is dedicated to reducing the occurrence and severity of injuries in rural areas of the Rocky Mountain region, particularly among underserved populations.
The Department is primarily housed in the Behavioral Sciences Building, a building that was completed in 2010 and was designed to meet LEED Gold Certification standards for environmental quality, innovative design, sustainability, and efficiency. The Behavioral Sciences Building includes office space for all full-time faculty and graduate students, meeting and seminar rooms, state-of-the-art classrooms, numerous lounge and study areas, and a café. The entire campus is wi-fi enabled, including all areas surrounding the buildings.
Also included are faculty research laboratories in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and sensation and perception that have been designed to specification. An adjacent building includes additional research space, computer facilities, a brand new imaging center housing EEG and NIRS imaging labs, and undergraduate instructional laboratories. A 3T MRI is expected to arrive on the CSU campus in the 2018-2019 academic year. In total, the Department controls over 100,000 square feet of research, teaching, and office space.
