Aurora University seeks talented faculty who are passionate about teaching and learning. As a private institution, Aurora University expects faculty to be involved in the lives of students through mentoring, student support, enrollment initiatives, and other activities related to the college experience. To facilitate this highly interactive faculty/student relationship, the typical teaching load is three 4 credit-hour courses per semester. Student advising is supported by professional staff. Undergraduate faculty share in the delivery of the general education program, most often by teaching within the university's interdisciplinary core. Evidence of successful teaching, or a strong potential for successful teaching, is required for all positions. Experience teaching at a smaller, private institution is highly preferred.
Position Purpose: Aurora University seeks a tenure-track faculty member to teach in and help develop the curriculum in the new Behavioral Neuroscience program. This faculty member will be passionate about teaching and learning and will help realize the vision of the university and the Psychology department.
Education: PhD in Psychology, Neuroscience, or a closely related field.
