The Department of Psychology at the University of Central Florida (UCF) invites applications for two nine-month positions, one at the early, tenure-earning assistant professor level and the other at the advanced, tenure-earning assistant professor or early, tenured associate professor level, anticipated to begin in August of 2022. 


For both candidates we seek dedicated and collegial educator/scientists whose work closely integrates theory and application and who can establish collaborative relationships with other colleges at the university (e.g., Business, Medicine, Health Professions and Sciences) and organizations in the surrounding area.


Our Ph.D. program develops I/O professionals who have the skills to conduct research that is both theory-based and problem-focused. We have awarded 55 Ph.D.'s and over 300 M.S. degrees since 2000. Our graduates are currently placed in academic positions (e.g., Clemson, Johns Hopkins), in organizations (e.g., Google, Disney, Marriott, JetBlue University), in government (e.g., Navy, Army, NASA, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), and in university research positions (e.g., Virginia Commonwealth School of Medicine, Rutgers Career Development Center).


Our M.S. program is dedicated to developing I/O professionals who have the skills to create and manage evidence-based solutions to organizational challenges. Our undergraduate program offers several classes in I/O psychology, social/personality, and measurement. Current I/O faculty expertise includes occupational health psychology, big data analytics, team performance, the changing nature of work, organizational citizenship behavior, organizational climate, and psychometrics.

We encourage you to apply if (1) you believe that you have the skills for the position, (2) meet some of the criteria outlined above, and (3) you are passionate about building a strong industrial/organizational psychology program at the undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral levels at UCF.
