The University of South Carolina invites inquiries, nominations, and applications for a tenured faculty position at the rank of professor in the area of quantitative psychology. Quantitative psychology is an emerging area of strength at USC, consisting of a core of four early to mid-career quantitative psychologists who have productive programs of research in the assessment of differential effects, longitudinal design, mediation analyses, neuroimaging applications, and randomized trials. The department seeks to add a senior faculty member to provide leadership, enhance opportunities for graduate level training, and raise the national profile of the quantitative area.

The position is open to many different areas of quantitative expertise with the expectation that the applicants research focus will complement the substantive research strengths of the department, which include child and family research, cognitive and behavioral neuroscience, health disparities, prevention science, and school psychology. The department is seeking applicants with a history of grant funding and collaboration with diverse research teams including both substantive and quantitative researchers.


The University of South Carolina, founded in 1801, is one of three public research universities in South Carolina and spans an eight-campus, fully accredited state-supported system with approximately 40,000 students. The Psychology Department with its 40 full-time faculty accounts for over $7 million in annualized extramural funding. Columbia (greater area pop. of 780,000), which is the state capital, features a quality of life not easily replicated elsewhere, including a low cost of living, access to many outdoor activities, vibrant arts and sports communities, and close proximity to beaches and mountains.
