W 3-Full Professorship
“Intensive Data Methods in Psychology”

The Department of Psychology at the University of Konstanz seeks applications for a permanent, full-time professor position in the field of intensive data methods in psychology. With the increasing sophistication of data collection technology more researchers in psychology collect data densely measured over time, space, and other continua. Applicants should pursue innovative research devoted to analysis and assessment of intensively measured data (e.g., experience sampling data, biopsychology data, observational techniques data, experimental or quasi-experimental data) to better understand dynamics of human behavior and mind. Of central importance is a focus on the development, evaluation, and application of various quantitative methods (including multilevel modeling, longitudinal / growth modeling, and / or structural equation modeling). Research should ideally relate to the two applied areas of the Department of Psychology (“Work and Health Psychology”, “Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology”).

The ideal candidate will have a productive research program focusing on quantitative methods for intensive data analysis and has demonstrated interest in collaboration with researchers from other areas of psychology. Connectivity and collaborative interest with one or more of the substantive research areas represented in the Department of Psychology (RiskDynamcis, SMARTACT, Decision Sciences, Stress, Trauma) is desirable.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach undergraduate level and graduate level courses in both quantitative methods and psychological assessment.

Applicants should hold an academic degree in psychology, a doctoral degree, completed postdoctoral training (i.e. German habilitation or equivalent achievements), an established record of publications in peer-reviewed journals, successful independent funding, and evidence of excellence in teaching.

The University of Konstanz encourages applications from people with a disability. They will be given preference if appropriately qualified (contact + 49 (0) 7531 / 88 – 4016).
