Tenure-track faculty positions at Florida International University (FIU)

The Department of Psychology at Florida International University (FIU) is searching for multiple new faculty positions at the assistant professor tenure-track level (senior candidates with active federal grant funding are also encouraged to apply) as well as multiple permanent digital instructors for undergraduate teaching. The tenure track positions will be in the Department’s new Cognitive Neuroscience program and/or the new Child and Adolescent Clinical Science Program. Candidates for tenure track positions must have a demonstrated evidence of or potential for extramural funding and a solid track record of scholarship in refereed journals. 

Candidates for the Cognitive Neuroscience area should have proficiency in one or more cutting-edge research areas and methodologies that may include but are not limited to neuroimaging, computational modeling, neuropsychology, genetics, and electrophysiology. Those working with human and non-human subjects (i.e., Cognitive and/or Behavioral Neuroscience) will be considered. The Cognitive Neuroscience area within the Department of Psychology is part of a broader campus-wide initiative to develop further Cognitive Neuroscience, including a Cognitive Neuroscience and Imaging Center (CNIC) and a STEM Institute.

Candidates for Child and Adolescent Clinical Science should have research interests in one of a number of areas, including but not limited to assessment, longitudinal outcomes, prevention/intervention with childhood or adolescent internalizing, externalizing, learning, or autism spectrum disorders, or adolescent substance use.  The Clinical Science program is closely affiliated with the Center for Children and Families (CCF), an interdisciplinary Center that focuses on research, education, and service, with strong connections to the community, as well as an active mental health clinic for children and adolescents, serving altogether more than 3000 families annually.
Ideally, the research interests of candidates for both positions should complement the existing faculty in Developmental Science, Legal Psychology, I/O Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, or Clinical Science doctoral programs, as well as the CNIC, CCF, and STEM Institutes. Collaborative research is emphasized. Faculty in these programs employ a variety of technologies and populations to study typical development and developmental psychopathology, lie detection in adults and children, prevention and intervention for mental health and/or academic problems, executive function, language, substance abuse, ADHD, autism, depression and anxiety, learning, memory, and multisensory processing. 

The non-tenure track instructor positions are for 9-month full-time teaching appointments that will have a primary emphasis on online undergraduate instruction in one or more of the following areas: Introductory Psychology and Psychological Research Methods/Data Analysis, with possible upper-level courses in clinical, developmental, cognitive neuroscience, and social Psychology, based upon the candidate's area of teaching specialization.  Preference will be given to individuals with demonstrated history in active and collaborative learning and online or hybrid instruction and course development and to individuals with experience or interest in teaching across multiple areas of need.  

The department has 32 tenure track faculty, 8 instructors, and 5 research faculty, more than 150 graduate students spread across five doctoral specialty programs and a masters program, 9 full time undergraduate advisors, and 4700 undergraduate majors. The department is young and vibrant, with 27 new hires in the past 4 years, the vast majority being assistant professors, but with well-established and well-funded senior faculty in each area. Currently, department faculty hold over $40 million in grants from federal agencies (e.g., NIMH, NICHD, NIDA, NIAAA, IES, NSF, DoJ).  

Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply at facultycareers.fiu.edu as follows; for the tenure track Cognitive Neuroscience Program apply to Job Opening ID 508625 and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and research statement as a single file; for the tenure track Child and Adolescent Clinical Science Program apply to Job Opening ID 508624 and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and research statement as a single file; for the Instructor in undergraduate teaching apply to Job Opening ID 508626 and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and teaching statement as a single file.
