Job Description

Assistant Professor of Animal Behavior.  The Department of Psychology at the University of New England (www.une.edu) invites applications for a tenure-track position in Animal Behavior, beginning August 2020. The University of New England is one of less than a dozen institutions in the U.S. to offer a B.S. in Animal Behavior, and the successful applicant would join a growing program and an enthusiastic department of 12 faculty members enrolling over 200 undergraduate students across majors in Animal Behavior, Psychology, and Neuroscience.

The successful applicant will demonstrate excellence in teaching and a strong record of scholarly productivity. Completion of a Ph.D. relevant to animal behavior and cognition (e.g., Animal Behavior, EEB, Experimental Psychology, etc.) is required prior to the contract start date; post-doctoral training is preferred.  Candidates must have the ability to teach courses for the animal behavior major including an introductory course, upper division courses, and courses in their area of specialization.  The candidate is also expected to sustain an active, independent program of scholarship that engages undergraduate students and results in peer-reviewed publications in reputable journals with undergraduate-student co-authors.

The University of New England is a private nonprofit comprehensive university, with primary campuses in Portland and Biddeford, Maine. The Psychology Department is housed on the Biddeford campus, approximately 30 minutes south of Portland. Biddeford’s waterfront campus provides easy access to city-based amenities, rocky coastline, sandy beaches, and nearby mountains, and Portland was recently named one of top 25 best places to live by U.S. News and World Report. Come join us on the beautiful coast of Maine!

Applications will only be accepted electronically (https://une.peopleadmin.com/postings/6334) and should include a cover letter, curriculum vita, transcripts, statement of research interests, statement of teaching interests, and names and contact information for three references.
