Job Description

The Department of Psychology at Saint Anselm College invites applications for two faculty positions. The first is a tenure track position in Social Psychology. The second is a non-tenure track three-year position in Developmental Psychology at the assistant professor level. Both positions begin in August 2021.


Saint Anselm is a Roman Catholic undergraduate liberal arts college in the Benedictine tradition.  The college is committed through its mission to fostering an active and ongoing engagement with equity, diversity and inclusion in order to provide students with the richest opportunities to learn both inside and outside the classroom.  We are located in the vibrant and diverse city of Manchester, NH, less than an hour from the New Hampshire seacoast, the White Mountains and from metropolitan Boston. 


Applicants should have college-level teaching experience and evidence of scholarly contributions to the field of Psychology. The successful candidates will teach across the department and be committed to actively involving undergraduates in research.  For the three-year position in Developmental Psychology current students who are ABD may apply, although the PhD is ideally in hand by the date of appointment, August 1, 2021.


Saint Anselm College has the advantage of an array of interdisciplinary resources for research, funding and collaboration.  Some examples include the Center for Ethics in Business & Governance, the InBre Network, collaborative labs within the department, undergraduate research fellowships, and the flagship New Hampshire Institute of Politics.  The Psychology department has two majors, Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience. The ideal candidate for either position will demonstrate the ability to collaborate across majors though the primary role is in Psychology. Knowledge of and capacity for sponsoring research in health equity and social determinants of health is a plus.


We are committed to increasing the proportion of our faculty from historically underrepresented groups, and seek candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their research, teaching and service.


Interested applicants should submit a letter of interest (including the position to which they are submitting their application), curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching ability and research potential (samples of scholarship, articles, grants or conference presentations)  and academic transcripts to the attention of Dr. Paul Finn - Faculty Search Committee, via the college website at  Three letters of recommendation are required and should be submitted in PDF format via email to the department faculty assistant Barbara Bartlett at  For priority consideration, applications should be received by October 24, 2020.


Successful candidates will be able to assist the college in advancing its mission and

strategic priorities, which includes institution-wide diversity and inclusiveness.
