The University of Oregon’s Department of Psychology is establishing a new emphasis area in diversity science, hiring up to three tenure-track positions in psychology. We are committed to building an interdisciplinary diversity science cluster that is integrated with and across traditional areas in our department. Researchers from all areas of psychology conducting diversity science are welcome to apply, but there is a need for at least one of the three positions to be in clinical psychology or another closely related health services psychology discipline (i.e. counseling psychology; school psychology).
Another of the three positions must be in developmental psychology, and is cross-referenced at this posting (please review for more details about that search; it is open to all areas of developmental psychology, with a strong interest in researchers engaged in developmental diversity science). Excellent candidates in diversity science will contribute to theoretically grounded, foundational research on topics such as (but not limited to) disparities in health and mental health, individual and community-based sources of resilience, development and socialization of identity and understandings of prejudice and discrimination, intergroup relations and conflict, or individual and structural bases of inequality.
In addition, the clinical diversity science position will fill critical undergraduate and graduate teaching needs in the area of culture/ethnicity/race in mental health. The appointments will be at the Assistant Professor level and will begin in Fall 2022.
Competitive candidates (Ph.D. required at the time of appointment) will have an active research program and be capable of outstanding research and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
We are especially interested in candidates who will contribute to the collaborative, interdisciplinary, and growing community of researchers across campus with interests in diversity science. We also particularly welcome applications from scholars who are from populations historically underrepresented in the academy, and/or who have experience working with diverse populations.
