The Psychology Department at Utrecht University has three job openings for Assistant Professors in the domains of social, health and organizational Psychology. The positions are embedded within the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences and are a combination of teaching (60%) and research (40%).

We are looking for three assistant professors who can teach and do research in the domains relevant to the Social, Health and Organisational Psychology group. The teaching is implemented in the Bachelor's Psychology, the one-year Master's Social, Health and Organizational Psychology, the Research Master's Social and Health Psychology; and in the Bachelor's and Research Master's Artificial Intelligence (AI). The department also teaches courses at University College Utrecht and provides Teaching for Professionals. Teaching includes (large-scale) lectures, (small-scale) instruction meetings, and (individual) internships and thesis supervision, along with more general tasks of coordination and administration.

In terms of research, we are looking for new colleagues to strengthen our research programme in Social, Health and Organisational Psychology, which combines fundamental and applied approaches in three domains: motivation, performance and self-regulation. Themes studied within our group include:

  • social cognition;
  • work, performance and well-being;
  • diversity and inclusion;
  • self-regulation and behaviour change;
  • interpersonal relationships and radicalization.

Moreover, within our university, our group collaborates with other disciplines within the interdisciplinary strategic themes Institutions for Open Societies and Dynamics of Youth.

Our group is committed to team science, practices Open Science and aspires to have a diverse body of staff.
