Assistant Professor of Pedagogy / Educational Sciences / Developmental Psychopathology

Updated: 3 months ago
Deadline: 27 May 2022

Everyone learns differently. It is important to educate others on the factors that influence these differences. As an Assistant Professor, you can contribute to the curriculum of Pedagogical and Educational Sciences, as well as conduct your own research. With your specialised knowledge and insights, you help students discover the realms of pedagogy, education and/or psychopathology.

We have two faculty openings at the assistant professor level. Both positions involve an equal division between teaching and research duties. We are looking for candidates with a background in pedagogical sciences (developmental psychopathology, pedagogy, general and special education or a closely related field (e.g. psychology, health sciences or behavioural sciences)). Experience in clinical practice is highly recommended.

As a lecturer, you will contribute to both introductory and more specialist courses in our Pedagogical and Educational Sciences curriculum (e.g. 'Introduction to Pedagogy') at the Bachelor's and Master's levels and you will supervise students during their internships and thesis research.

As a researcher, you have experience in and in-depth knowledge of research related to either 'family and parenting' or 'learning and learning problems', which comprise two of the research programmes of the Behavioural Science Institute (i.e. Developmental Psychopathology (DP) and Learning and Plasticity (L&P)). The Developmental Psychopathology group  studies how individual characteristics (e.g. personality, cognitions, emotions and genes) and environmental and social factors (e.g. peers, parents and schools) interact to influence the development of a range of psychopathologies (e.g. mental health disorders, addiction). The Learning and Plasticity group  conducts fundamental and applied research on individual differences in learning and development, with a focus on typically developing groups and samples with an atypical development. We expect you to build and/or extend your own research line and to connect with researchers and research lines across groups.
