Two Assistant Professor Positions at Oklahoma State University

Quantitative Psychology: In addition to the general expectations above, candidates would be expected to provide statistical consultation as a contributor to ongoing research and grant proposals for Department faculty and graduate students.

Ideal candidates will have a strong background and expertise in quantitative methods, preferably with an advanced degree in quantitative psychology.
