EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in Psychology, Chennai, India

21.05.2023, by Media Account

Deadline: 25 June 2023

Sai University (SaiU) is a new research oriented liberal arts and sciences university in Chennai, India. The psychology program at SaiU has been designed for students to engage with the core concepts underlying psychology, clinical challenges and critical global challenges. The interdisciplinary design of the Psychology program is meant to ensure that students leave with the sense of psychology as an expansive discipline encompassing cognitive neuroscience, politics, economics, philosophy, and data analytics.
We are looking for faculty who are excited by this vision to help shape a unique Psychology program, and are willing to engage in the work of building a new university. Candidates should have a PhD and a demonstrated history of success in research and teaching in either Clinical Psychology, Social Psychology, or Social Neuroscience. The ideal candidate will work closely with other faculty members to develop an innovative, cross-disciplinary approach to research that will make the group competitive on the global stage. Intergroup dynamics, psychopathology, individual differences, social cognition, motivation and emotion would all fall under the umbrella of potential study topics. They will also help shape and implement teaching for students at the undergraduate level.
We are particularly interested in candidates with an interest in exploring how group processes relate to, and can help address, societal and global challenges associated with issues such as the climate crisis and migration.

Applications from groups that are under-represented in university faculty positions are encouraged. At the centre of the SAI University experience are the values of equality, diversity, and inclusion. We work hard to foster an environment where everyone feels welcome.
