I’m happy to announce that the University of Auckland has just opened a search for a tenure-track lectureship (equivalent to an Assistant Professor) in Social Psychology. We are particularly interested in applicants whose research area can connect with and extend existing research and teaching strengths in social psychology. The closing date for the job is 12 October NZDT (because of differences in time zones, this means that the closing date will be October 11 for applicants in the Americas and most of Europe). Additional information about the position is listed below. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks and have a nice day!
