Job Description
  Job Title: Assistant Professor in Developmental Psychology
  Job ID: 16074
  Department: Psychology
  Location: Queens College

​Assistant Professor in Developmental Psychology:  The Department of Psychology at Queens College of the City University of New York (CUNY) invites applicants for a tenure-track position at the level of Assistant Professor (salary commensurate with experience) to begin in the Fall of 2017. 

We seek an outstanding scientist to join our Psychology Department, which houses an APA-accredited Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology (with Emphasis in Neuropsychology), an Applied Behavioral Analysis Ph.D. program, and multiple MA programs including Behavioral Neuroscience and Applied Behavior Analysis. Candidates in any area of developmental psychology will be considered. The candidate is expected to contribute to the service, teaching and research mission of the department, through responsibilities including: a) teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Developmental Psychology and other related areas; b) actively engage in service and mentorship in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral program at Queens College; and c) establish a program of empirical research and involve undergraduate and graduate students at Queens College in their research. In addition, Queens College is part of the CUNY Graduate Center, which includes multiple doctoral training areas (e.g., Developmental Psychology) consisting of faculty from multiple CUNY senior colleges and the Graduate Center for which the candidate could potentially affiliate with and recruit Ph.D. students from.

The Psychology Department is committed to sustaining a diverse, inclusive community of faculty, students, and staff. We are especially interested in qualified candidates whose research, teaching, and service reflect engagement with varied perspectives and constituencies.

Often referred to as "the jewel of the CUNY system", Queens College sits on 80 acres of land and is a place of contrast: an urban school in a suburban setting. It is a place where a large and diverse student body receives personalized attention. This formula has made us one of New York's premier educational institutions. Moreover, Queens College is located in Queens County, one of the most diverse counties in the United States providing an opportunity to study a diverse community sample.
With a mission to prepare students to become leading citizens of an increasingly global society, we offer a rigorous education in the liberal arts and sciences under the guidance of a faculty dedicated to both teaching and research. Our liberal arts, science and pre-professional programs earn us high rankings in prestigious college guides such as The Princeton Review America's Best Value colleges. Our students graduate with the ability to think critically, address complex problems, explore various cultures, use modern technologies and information resources, and have won prominence in nearly every field.


​Candidates for the position must have a Doctoral degree in Psychology specializing in Developmental Psychology (or be ABD, but will have Doctoral degree by the start date), and have a record of innovative research, potential to attract extramural funding, and a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.


​CUNY offers faculty a competitive compensation and benefits package covering health insurance, pension and retirement benefits, paid parental leave, and savings programs.  We also provide mentoring and support for research, scholarship, and publication as part of our commitment to ongoing faculty professional development.
