Description

The Department of Psychology at Colorado State University and the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging (CHSCHA) at Colorado State University invite applications for a tenure-track position in the Department of Psychology and affiliated with CHSCHA. This position is at the rank of assistant professor and begins in August 2022. CSU is an EO/EA/AA employer and conducts background checks on all final candidates.

Requirements

The successful candidate is expected to demonstrate excellence in teaching, clinical practice and research. CSU welcomes candidates with a wide range of research expertise in human neuropsychology research, especially a focus on dementia and related disorders (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease dementia, vascular dementia, Parkinson’s disease dementia, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal dementia, mild cognitive impairment, etc.). Candidates should be able to teach undergraduate and graduate-level coursework in neuropsychology, biological psychology, and specialty courses related to their area of research interest. They will also be expected to participate in the interdisciplinary CHSCHA at CSU.

Postdoctoral research experience is preferred. The ideal candidate will have a research focus in aging, age-related changes in cognitive abilities, strategies/interventions related to resilience in cognitive aging, and/or dementia. The ideal candidate will also demonstrate expertise in neuropsychological assessment and/or intervention techniques and will have completed an internship in clinical neuropsychology. If not already licensed, the candidate should show evidence that he or she is on course to become licensed within the next three years. Candidates with a clear and consistent record of publication focused on aging and/or dementia will be preferred over candidates whose publication records are primarily outside of aging.
