UC Santa Cruz - Cognitive Psychology - Assistant Professors

The Department of Psychology [https://psychology.ucsc.edu/] at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for two tenure-track positions in Cognitive Psychology with a focus on language and interaction. We welcome applications from scholars investigating any topic in the study of human communication, but we are particularly interested in scholars who study issues such as how to ensure successful communication between individuals, negotiate multi-party conversations, or reach group consensus. We are also interested in hiring scholars who study how individual and group communicative behaviors are mediated by technology, including communication with artificial and virtual agents. More generally, we seek colleagues who will complement our existing strengths in Learning and Memory, Language and Interaction, and Perception and Performance.
