Dear colleagues,

I am writing to notify you of the following position at Michigan State
University. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

*Assistant Professor - Educational Psychology - Michigan State University*

The Educational Psychology and Educational Technology (EPET) program at
Michigan State University (MSU) invites applications for a tenure-track
position at the level of Assistant Professor to begin Fall 2015. EPET is a
nationally ranked graduate program that produces scholars and leaders in
the study of learning, development, and technology in relation to education
and broader cultural practices.

We are seeking candidates with interests in the application of psychology
to education.  We welcome applicants who study teaching and learning in a
range of environments – e.g., formal or informal, face-to-face or
technologically mediated. The specific focus of candidates’ interest is
open, though preference will be given to candidates whose
research complements and extends the interests of current EPET faculty.
Broad areas of interest may include socio-emotional development, learning
processes and cognitive development, contextual and cultural influences on
learning and development, and motivation and engagement. Ideal candidates
will have earned a doctorate in educational psychology or a closely related
field, as we are looking for candidates to teach graduate classes in
educational psychology, cognitive development, social-emotional
development, and/or cultural influences on teaching and learning.
Successful candidates will show the potential to develop a nationally
recognized, externally funded program of research. This individual will be
expected to teach graduate courses, advise Ph.D. students, and participate
in professional, college, and departmental service activities.

The EPET program is a unique and award-winning program that integrates the
fields of educational psychology and educational technology both in terms
of research and in innovative program offerings. EPET is one of five
programs in the Department of Counseling, Educational Psychology, and
Special Education (CEPSE) within the College of Education. For more
information, please visit our website at http://edutech.msu.edu.

Interested persons should apply to position #0091 via the link at

detailing qualifications for the position and a statement of research and
teaching interests, (2) curriculum vitae, (3) up to three
representative publications, and (4) names and contact information for
three references.

Please contact the chair of the search committee, Dr.
Lisa Linnenbrink-Garcia, llgarcia@msu.edu, (517) 432-1817, if you have
questions about the position. Review of applications will begin October 31,
2014 and continue until the position is filled.

to achieving excellence through cultural diversity. The university actively
