The Psychology Department (https://www.rhodes.edu/psychology) at Rhodes College invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor to begin Fall of 2019. Candidates with degrees in Clinical Psychology, Health Psychology, or related fields in psychology are encouraged to apply. Rhodes Colege is especially interested in attracting candidates who are gender/sexual minorities, from historically underrepresented groups, and/or those with demonstrated commitment to working with diverse and historically underrepresented populations.

The successful candidate must demonstrate a firm commitment to teaching and scholarship at a liberal arts lege and will be expected to maintain an active research program involving undergraduates.

Teaching responsibilities will include five courses a year which may include introductory psychology, statistics, upper-level research and seminar courses in the candidate's area of specialization, and content courses related to clinical, social equity, or health psychology. Research will be supported by start-up funds and lab space, and possibilities for additional research support include summer research funds and travel funds. In addition, extensive opportunities for collaborative research are available through our partnerships with OUTMemphis, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, University of Memphis, University of Tennessee Medical School, and Le Bonheur Children's Hospital.
