Offering more than thirty doctoral degrees from Anthropology to Urban Education, and fostering globally significant research in a wide variety of centers and institutes, the GC provides academic training in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. The Graduate Center is also integral to the intellectual and cultural vitality of New York City. Through its extensive public programs, The Graduate Center hosts a wide range of events – lectures, conferences, book discussions, art exhibits, concerts, and dance and theater that enrich and inform.

The PhD Program in Psychology at the GC seeks a tenure track Assistant Professor specializing in Quantitative Methods beginning Fall 2018. The exact area of the quantitative focus is open, but the candidate’s expertise would optimally complement the Doctoral Program’s existing strengths.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach both introductory and advanced graduate level statistics and quantitative research methods courses and substantive courses in the candidate’s area of expertise as well as advise and mentor graduate students across multiple research methods.
