The Department of Psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a tenure-track position in Developmental Psychology, with a focus on the role of diversity and inequality in learning during early and middle childhood. We seek to enhance our Developmental Psychology program’s long-established strengths in studying the lived experiences of children from diverse backgrounds, bridging traditionally separate areas of developmental research, and integrating cultural, interpersonal, and individual aspects of human development. We are particularly interested in scholars whose research addresses the topics of diversity and social inequality in human development using a strengths-based approach. For example, candidates’ research might focus on ways to leverage the learning strengths of children from historically underserved backgrounds, with attention to the familial, educational, political, technological, and/or economic infrastructure for (and barriers to) their learning. As another example, candidates’ research might focus on how children from different backgrounds learn from their everyday experiences.
