The Department of Psychology at the University of Oklahoma is seeking applications for department chairperson. The department offers graduate degrees in cognitive, industrial/organizational, social, and quantitative psychology. The department also participates in a multidisciplinary degree program in cellular and behavioral neurobiology. In addition to the four major program areas, some faculty also work in one or more of three integrative, cross-cutting specialties: developmental, neuroscience, and personality/individual differences. The department is excited about this chairperson search as we see it complementing the recent strategic faculty hires we have made in the last four years in addition to the multiple searches currently underway (I/O Psychology/Leading for Creativity and Innovation: https://apply.interfolio.com/93832, Applied Social Psychology/Health Psychology: https://apply.interfolio.com/94784).
To be considered for this position, candidates must have prior administrative experience, an established reputation for high-quality scholarship in an area that contributes to the department’s strength in applied psychological science, and the potential for excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching and mentoring. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Psychology or a closely-related discipline. Prior fundraising and/or development experience would be beneficial.
