NYU Shanghai is currently inviting applications for several positions at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full professor in Psychology.

We seek candidates at the rank of full, associate, or assistant professor in Psychology (or a closely related discipline).  We are interested both in building on our current strengths, in gender and sexuality, child development, and legal psychology,  and in developing innovative and exciting collaborations with faculty across the social sciences (particularly global public health and sociology) and natural and computational sciences (particularly neuroscience, AI and big data). Thus we invite applications in all fields of psychology and encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds to apply. 

The psychology faculty at NYU Shanghai currently consists of one tenured, three tenure-track as well as two contract faculty professors. Our key research areas make the profile of psychology at NYU Shanghai unique in China. Issues of gender and especially sexuality are underrepresented at Chinese universities and NYU Shanghai has the potential to become a leading center for research in this area in China. The same is true with legal psychological research where we have competencies in especially child forensic interviewing. Finally, our child development research has a unique emphasis on cultural context and interdisciplinarity.  Research in this area is particularly focused on identifying risk and resilience factors in individual and family psychological and behavioral wellbeing, with a focus on disadvantaged populations. 

Application Instructions
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research, statement of teaching interests, and at least one writing sample via Interfolio. Additionally, junior applicants should enter the names and email addresses of at least three referees. Each referee will be contacted to upload a reference letter through Interfolio. To facilitate review, the candidates are also asked to fill in a brief questionnaire collecting some key information in a standardized manner from all candidates.

Applications may be received until November 15, 2022. To apply, follow this link If you have any questions, please email the NYU Shanghai NY Office of Faculty Recruitment [email protected]
