FYI. Two full Professorship vacancies (UK and Germany)


  1. Professor in Psychology, University of Bath, UK

    The Department of Psychology at the University of Bath is completing a significant expansion. The Department occupies a new purpose-built five storey building, containing two floors of laboratories, including state-of-the-art rooms for interview, focus group and observation research, EEG/ERP, virtual reality, psychobiology, eye-tracking, pain, cross-modal and computerised testing.

    As part of our expansion, one post is available at the Professor level. Research excellence will be a more important consideration than precise area of focus, but we are particularly interested in adding to our expertise in Social Psychology.  Applications for this post are welcomed from established Professors, as well as Readers or Senior Lecturers who can demonstrate a significant upward trajectory. Chairs are expected to be internationally leading in their field of expertise. All applicants are expected to have an excellent track record of publications, research grant acquisition, and teaching experience, commensurate to their stage of career.

    Informal enquiries can be directed to the Head of Department, Professor Greg Maio (g.r.maio@bath.ac.uk; +44 (0)1225 38 4647).

    Presentations and Interview will take place in May on the 2nd & 3rd, 2017

    Deadline: 3rd April

2. Full Professor of Social Psychology, University of Cologne, Germany

The Department of Psychology at the Faculty of Human Sciences of the University of Cologne (UoC) seeks to appoint a full professor of social psychology (W3-tenured). The successful candidate is expected to have a record of excellence in social cognition, and/or related areas such as cognitive psychology or motivation science. The candidate is also expected to strongly contribute to the UoC’s Center for Social and Economic Behavior and the Social Cognition Center Cologne of the Department of Psychology. Both structures are part of UoC’s Key Profile Area II, “Behavioral Economic Engineering and Social Cognition“. The ideal candidate’s track record should show an excellent fit with these interrelated structures and a strong interest to bridge the fields of social cognition and behavioral economics.

The Department of Psychology aims for transparent and reproducible research (including Open Data, Open Materials, and Preregistrations). Applicants are asked to illustrate how they have pursued these goals in the past and/or how they plan to do so in the future.

We strongly encourage *international* applicants. Salaries and working conditions at the UoC – one of the German Universities of Excellence – meet international standards. Candidates are expected to be willing to learn the German language. The Faculties offer Bachelor, Master, and doctoral degrees. Courses are taught either in English or German.

The UoC supports diversity, the multiplicity of perspectives, and equal opportunities. The University of Cologne particularly encourages applications from persons with disabilities. Disabled persons are given preference in case of equal qualification. Women are strongly encouraged to apply. Preferential treatment is given to women if their professional qualifications and abilities are equivalent to those of other applicants.

Applications with the usual documents (including vita, research statement, 5 most important publications, full list of publications and teaching experience, and diplomas) should be submitted via the University’s Academic Job Portal (https://berufungen.uni-koeln.de) until *March 30th, 2017.*
