Assistant Professor in Educational Psychology-Learning and Cognition


The Department of Educational Psychology and Learning Systems in the College of Education at Florida State University (FSU) is seeking qualified applicants for the tenure-track position of Assistant Professor in Educational Psychology: Learning & Cognition (L&C).


The L&C program at FSU is one of the top 25 Educational Psychology programs according to U.S. News & World Reports. The program currently offers online-MS, face-to-face MS-thesis and PhD degrees, as well as a graduate certificate in College Teaching. L&C has a strong focus on evaluating effective learning contexts and research evidence behind education-related interventions, and (in the case of thesis and doctoral students) on conducting research. We prepare professionals across many disciplines to apply theories of cognition, learning, and development to their fields of practice. Our students come from many backgrounds to apply Learning and Cognition in research, classroom, government, or organizational settings. We also prepare scholars to identify and pursue important research questions and conduct rigorous studies on issues related to supporting learning across the lifespan, especially for those who have been underserved.
