Position Details


The Department of Psychology at The University of Tampa is seeking a diverse pool of qualified candidates for a full-time appointment as an Assistant Teaching Professor to begin August 2024. This is a renewable, non-tenure track, instructional faculty position, with promotion opportunities. Instructional faculty are respected members of the department and have the principal responsibility of providing instruction and support to students, and while instructional faculty are expected to maintain currency in their fields, they are not required to have a research agenda.


We are looking for someone with a passion for excellence in teaching and introducing students to the foundations of psychology. Teaching responsibilities will include teaching 16 credit hours (a typical class is 4 credits) per semester: primarily general psychology, psychology in everyday life (a non-majors course), introductory research methods and statistics, and careers in psychology. There is a future possibility of teaching a course in the candidate's subfield. Other position responsibilities will include undergraduate student advising and committee service.


The Psychology Department at The University of Tampa currently has 18 full-time faculty and approximately 550 undergraduate majors. Undergraduates are offered a high-quality educational experience and are provided with training in the clinical, organizational, biopsychology, cognitive, social, and developmental subfields. Experiential education is emphasized with numerous opportunities for faculty-mentored student research, internships, and service learning.


The University of Tampa is a medium-sized, comprehensive, residentially based private institution of 11,047 undergraduate and graduate students. The University is ideally situated on a beautiful 110-acre campus next to the Hillsborough River, adjacent to Tampa's dynamic central business district, a growing, vibrant, diverse metropolitan area. UT reflects this vibrancy; with 25 consecutive years of enrollment growth, UT boasts over 300 student organizations, a multicultural student body from 50 states and most of the world's countries, and a "Top Tier" ranking in U.S. News and World Report.



Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Psychology or be ABD in a Psychology program (subfield is open).


Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2024 and will continue until the position is filled.
