Arizona State University, a leading public research university that is rated first in the U.S. for innovation, seeks a dynamic, forward-looking chair for the Department of Psychology, with a concurrent appointment as a tenured Professor. The anticipated start date for this position is July 1, 2023. ASU is a dynamic, internationally-recognized institution dedicated to interdisciplinary collaborations, rethinking university education, and integrating excellence in research, teaching, and service. Guided by its mission of inclusivity, ASU serves more than 150,000 students on five campuses in the Phoenix metropolitan area, one of the fastest growing urban centers in the nation, and globally through ASU Online.
The new chair of the Department of Psychology will lead a large, complex, and strong unit that is undergoing significant growth. The Department is home to 52 tenured/tenure-track faculty, 14 instructional faculty, 8 research faculty, and 24 core staff, along with research staff, postdocs and doctoral teaching and research assistants. They work to educate 3100 undergraduate majors in Psychology and Neuroscience and over 150 graduate students, delivering courses that fill 19,000 seats annually. Faculty are grouped into six areas: Behavioral Neuroscience and Comparative Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Cognitive Science, Developmental Psychology, Quantitative Psychology, and Social Psychology. Community engagement is an important component of the Department’s mission with initiatives such as the Clinical Psychology Center, Child Study Lab, REACH Institute, and Psych for Life.
Reporting to the Dean of Natural Sciences within The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the new Chair will be a respected leader who is passionate about creatively advancing access and excellence in both education and research; someone with the capacity to engage faculty across the breadth of areas within the department while sustaining a culture of collaboration within and beyond the school. The new chair will be an inclusive relationship builder who will lead the department and its energetic and engaged community of educator-scholars into the future by strategically identifying and fostering areas for additional growth, innovation, and partnership. The new chair will be dedicated to supporting ASU’s charter, the success of our diverse student population, and the health of ASU’s broader community.
