The Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago is seeking to build a new Social Psychology program. The department therefore seeks to hire prominent social psychologists who are interested in creating and developing such a program at the University of Chicago. This is an open rank search and we encourage all potentially interested applicants to apply.  The new program will benefit from synergies with members of the Department of Psychology, researchers at the Center for Decision Research at the Booth School of Business, as well as the Committee on Education.  Applicants must be social psychologists with an influential research record, and they should be interested in creating a world-class program that welcomes, respects, and supports a diverse community of scholars. The Division of Social Sciences and the Department of Psychology are committed to the creation and the support of such a program.

The Search Committee will begin reviewing applications on November 20, 2021 and will continue to consider new applications until the positions are filled or the search is closed.  Appointments may begin as early as July 1, 2022.

The Department of Psychology is dedicated to building a culturally diverse faculty and staff who are committed to creating and nurturing an inclusive community that welcomes, respects, and supports everyone, including those from underrepresented and marginalized groups.
