 The University of Richmond Department of Psychology invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin in the 2022-2023 academic year. 

We are seeking a cognitive psychologist who would contribute to the Department of Psychology as well as our interdisciplinary program in Cognitive Science. The ideal candidate would have research expertise in a domain not currently represented by our faculty. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to: 1) controlled processes of human attention including mindfulness or meditation; 2) cross-cultural cognition; 3) human factors and applied cognition; or 4) judgment and decision making. 

The University of Richmond is a private university located just a short drive from downtown Richmond, Virginia. Through its five schools and wide array of campus programming, the University combines the best qualities of a small liberal arts college and a large university. With nearly 4,000 students, an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, and more than 90% of traditional undergraduate students living on campus, the University is remarkably student-centered, focused on preparing students “for lives of purpose, thoughtful inquiry, and responsible leadership in a diverse world.” 

The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote thriving in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment. For more information on the department and its programs, please see
