The Faculty of Science, University of Auckland

The Faculty of Science at the University of Auckland is the largest and most highly ranked science faculty in New Zealand. The Faculty of Science is ranked among the top 90 science faculties worldwide by the QS World University Rankings. The 10 departments and schools that form the Faculty of Science represent the breadth and diversity of science in our modern world.

Auckland’s harbour setting, magnificent beaches and verdant bush make it a great place to study and work, while the University’s close proximity to New Zealand’s major businesses and hospitals enables staff and students to rub shoulders with leading practitioners in their field. Auckland offers a diverse range of employment and leisure options, including easy access to high quality schools which prepare students extremely well for the transition to university.

Equity

The University is committed to meeting its obligations under New Zealand’s Treaty of Waitangi and achieving equity outcomes for staff and students. The University provides onsite early childhood centres for infants and preschool children and has parental leave and flexible work policies supporting a balance between work, life, family and caring responsibilities. We invite and encourage applications from members of groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences.

School of Psychology

The School of Psychology is the largest in New Zealand and has international research leaders across a wide range of research fields, including social, clinical, developmental, behavioural, and evolutionary psychology, and cognitive neuroscience. We have professional postgraduate programmes in clinical psychology, applied behaviour analysis, and speech science. The School has extensive research space and a significant investment in research infrastructure, and has just moved into a new building with state-of-the-art facilities. We strive to be an inclusive and collaborative community of scholars.

The position

We are inviting applications for a lectureship in Psychology (equivalent to tenure-track Assistant Professor) from people who are able to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, as well as research supervision, in Social Psychology at the University of Auckland.

Appointees should have a PhD in Psychology or a related discipline and a strong record of publishing research in Social Psychology (broadly construed). We are particularly interested in applicants whose research area can connect with and extend existing research and teaching strengths in social psychology (for more information, see our web page). We also encourage applications from people with knowledge or experience related to New Zealand and the wider Asia-Pacific context.

Applicants will need to demonstrate a capacity for achieving research excellence, gaining external research funds, and contributing to the development of research and teaching programmes within the School, particularly within Social Psychology. The successful applicant should also expect to carry a full graduate supervision load. We encourage diversity in our staff and students. Appointees should have the capacity to teach students from a variety of cultural backgrounds.

For more details, contact the Head of the School of Psychology, Professor Suzanne Purdy (sc.purdy@auckland.ac.nz).
