Lectureship position at Victoria University Of Wellington New Zealand 2020:


Lecturer in Social Psychology

  • Location: Kelburn
  • Type: Permanent
  • Post Date: Mon Jan 13 22:53:45 2020
  • Ref: 1000739

The School of Psychology is seeking to make a permanent, full-time appointment at the Lecturer level (equivalent to North American Assistant Professor). The area of content specialisation for this position is Social Psychology and we welcome applications from individuals who have specialist research knowledge in this broad area. The School has established expertise in the areas of interpersonal and intergroup processes, feminist and discursive psychology, social cognition and decision making, and political psychology, utilising the full breadth of methodological and analytic approaches (e.g., quantitative, qualitative, experimental, etc). We invite candidates whose expertise/research complements and/or adds to these. A strong commitment to open science practices is essential for the position, as is a demonstrated commitment to equity, inclusivity, and diversity. Candidates from Māori/Pasifika backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an energetic social psychology group with international research and teaching expertise within a world-leading university. The purpose of this position is to contribute to the School’s research, service, and teaching, in the area of social psychology. The staff member will be expected to teach and supervise social psychology at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level, add to the School’s existing strengths in teaching and supervision, and ideally complement existing research concentrations in the School.

The preferred applicant will have a PhD in psychology, a strong research and publication record, and experience in social psychology teaching and supervision.

The University has an excellent research culture and the School of Psychology is recognised as being within the top echelon of psychology departments in New Zealand. The School hosts research laboratories in many of psychology’s specialty areas: cognition, learning, social, cross-cultural, developmental, behavioural pharmacology, neuropsychology, clinical, and forensic psychology. It is also home to the Victoria Psychology Clinic and the Centre for Applied Cross-cultural Research, and it has connections to the Roy McKenzie Centre for the Study of Families. Importantly, the School of Psychology has a strong commitment to equity and diversity, and specifically to bicultural practice in research and teaching consistent with the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi.

As the capital city of New Zealand, Wellington is home to parliament, key government agencies and judicial courts, providing excellent opportunities for developing research and professional partnerships with Government and NGOs. In particular, the Social Psychology group has relationships with various external organisations in the Wellington area. It is a vibrant, scenic and creative city making it a wonderful place to live and work.

For further information please contact Professor Marc Wilson, School of Psychology, at: marc.wilson@vuw.ac.nz.

Applications close 31 March 2020.
