The Department of Psychology at Skidmore College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the area of Health Psychology beginning Fall 2020. The faculty member in this position will teach core courses (i.e., Statistics and Research Methods I and II, Introduction to Psychological Science) and courses in their area of expertise, and will supervise undergraduate research. Within the context of an 18-credit teaching load (generally five courses), the position also occasionally includes teaching a first-year interdisciplinary seminar (topic open).
We encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups as well as individuals who have experience working with diverse student populations and who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their teaching, scholarship, and/or service. Enthusiasm for advising, teaching, and mentoring a diverse population of students is essential. We seek candidates who are firmly committed to undergraduate education, including the involvement of undergraduates in research programs that are theoretically and methodologically sophisticated. Excellent teaching and research facilities support faculty/student collaborative work in the classroom, lab, and field.
