Most importantly, we are looking for someone who will be able to a) maintain a productive research program that is recognized by external funding , b) demonstrate excellence in teaching and supervising graduate and undergraduate students, and c) contribute to and participate in the mission of the program and department.  The candidate would be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the I/O curriculum and/or courses within their area of expertise. A reduced initial teaching load and generous startup funds are provided.

The Department has 27 full-time faculty, 500 undergraduate majors, and approximately 60 graduate students enrolled in programs in Industrial/Organizational (M.S.), Clinical (Ph.D.), and Addiction Neuroscience (Ph.D.).
