The psychology program invites applications for two tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning Fall 2020. Research specialization is open, but candidates are expected to contribute to the program with teaching and research that demonstrate a commitment to studies of diversity, inequality, and/or social justice. Candidates with teaching experience in research methods and statistics are preferred. Given the institution’s strong emphasis on diversity, candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.

Candidates must have received a Ph.D. in psychology or a related discipline from a regionally-accredited institution by the time of employment. Candidates should have an established research agenda grounded in diversity, inequality studies, and/or social justice from any area of psychology. Candidates will be expected to teach undergraduate courses in research methods, statistics, and their specialty area, and contribute to service activities within the department and institution. The ideal candidate will have previous teaching experience. Review of complete applications will begin November 15, 2019, and will continue until the position is filled. A letter of interest and curriculum vitae must be attached to the online application. A statement of teaching philosophy that emphasizes instructional strategies and student engagement, evidence of teaching effectiveness, research statement, a copy of all undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and three letters of recommendation are required.
