The Behavior Analysis Program in the Department of Psychology at UNR is seeking applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position at the associate professor level to provide essential training in core pillars of the BA Program: the analysis of language and cognition across conceptual, research, and applied domains.  Recruitment of expertise in this area aligns with the following themes in the UNR Strategic Plan: behavior science directed towards socially significant needs including behavioral health, social well-being, climate change, behavioral economics, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. These areas of specialization complement and build upon the program’s existing strengths. Current members of the Behavior Analysis faculty have expertise in organizational behavior management, behavioral systems analysis, early intensive intervention, developmental disabilities, animal learning, relational frame theory, acceptance and commitment training, behavioral economics, and behavior theory and philosophy. Successful candidates will demonstrate the potential to develop a strong extramurally supported research program, train and supervise graduate students, teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and supervise undergraduate field experiences.  Competitive startup funds are available. Start date is based on candidate’s availability - July 1, 2023 or January 1, 2024.

The department of Psychology has approximately 900 undergraduate psychology majors, 440 neuroscience majors through a collaborative program with the Department of Biology, 120 graduate students, 32 tenure-ladder faculty, four teaching faculty, and a corps of administrative staff.  Reno is located in Northern Nevada in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.  Notable Sierra attractions include Lake Tahoe and Yosemite Valley.  The area is rated among the most livable and affordable cities in the US.  For more information about the Psychology Department and the Behavior Analysis Program, please visit
