APA has launched a nationwide search for a new chief scientific officer (CSO).

The CSO will be a visionary executive responsible for leading APA’ strategy to advance the discipline and profession of psychology and enhance the reach and impact of psychological science.  A member of the Executive Management Group, the CSO will report directly to me.

The search is being led by Jim Diaz-Granados, Ph.D., APA’s Chief Education Officer, with support from an executive search firm.

Thanks for sharing the position with talented, strategic, imaginative, and inspirational individuals. The CSO position description has more information about the role, ideal candidate specifications, and desired leadership competencies.

Please direct all CSO nominations to our Russell Reynolds Associates search partners Stephanie Tomasso and Michael Singleton by email at APAChiefScientificOfficer@russellreynolds.com.

I appreciate your support in getting out the word as broadly as possible, and your commitment to ensuring APA has a world-class science agenda.
