The Institute of Child Development (ICD) at the University of Minnesota seeks an outstanding candidate for a tenure-track position in developmental psychopathology at the Assistant Professor level. We're particularly interested in researchers who:
Similarly, skills in advanced developmental research methods and/or statistical expertise are of interest. All applicants are expected to have strong and fundable research programs and to contribute to both graduate and undergraduate supervision and instruction in developmental psychology/developmental psychopathology. A strong developmental orientation to research and teaching is required. ICD is committed to building a culturally diverse faculty and strongly encourages applications from minority candidates and other under-represented groups.
ICD has long been a premier center for scholarship, teaching, and outreach in child psychology. Coursework and research activities focus on the cognitive, social, emotional, and psychobiological/neuroscience processes underlying the development of infants, children, and youth. ICD collaborates with the Department of Psychology to offer a specialty track in Developmental Psychopathology and Clinical Science.
The University of Minnesota is rich in resources available to ICD faculty, including the Institute for Translational Research in Children’s Mental Health, with both treatment and research rooms, the Center for Neurobehavioral Development, with both low- and high-density EEG/ERP facilities and complete autonomic laboratory, the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research, with three research-dedicated 3T Siemens Prisma scanners, a laboratory preschool housed in the Institute of Child Development, and the many additional resources afforded in a large metropolitan area.
Founded in 1925, the Institute is one of the most established departments for the study of children’s development in the United States. From its inception, a key tenet of the department has been to “give away” developmental science. This philosophy has created an environment rich with collaborations, new ideas, and exciting interdisciplinary work.
Located in the culturally diverse cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, the University of Minnesota offers unique opportunities for research and participation in varied cultural communities. The College of Education and Human Development is one of the top-ranked professional schools of education in the nation. We're an inclusive, nationally distinctive college that explores education and human development across the life span to increase the intellectual synergy and cooperative inquiry required to address the complexity of educational and social issues facing children, youth, and families in the 21st century.
