Lecturer in Quantitative Psychology- University of Michigan

The Department of Psychology in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts at the University of Michigan seeks applicants with a Ph.D. for a full time Lecturer III position to begin August 26, 2024. This is a non-tenure track position with a university year appointment.

This is an exciting position for a quantitative methodologist passionate about education, as it uniquely provides opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate teaching as well as statistical consultation. Specifically, duties and responsibilities for this Lecturer III position are expected to include: the development and instruction of advanced undergraduate quantitative methods courses (e.g., applied linear regression, multivariate statistics, and longitudinal analysis in psychological research and introduction to Bayesian statistics); the teaching of standing undergraduate research methods and graduate-level advanced research methods and statistics courses; and the organization and provision of methodological consulting services, including mentoring graduate students working on existing federally-funded projects. A typical full-time (100% effort) load for a Lecturer III in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts is three courses per semester, or the equivalent in administrative and/or service duties. 

Qualified candidates will have a Ph.D. in psychology or a related social science field, a range of instructional expertise, and extensive background in quantitative psychology, research methods, and data science. In addition, qualified applicants should have evidence of scholarly publications and a track record of collaborations with both faculty and students alike. Excellence in teaching and instructional service will be the principal criteria used to select the successful candidate.
