Because we intend to fill two positions, candidates from all specialty areas of psychology will receive consideration. We are especially interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching, and/or service, will be able to contribute to Northland’s emphases on issues of social justice, sustainability, and the environment. The successful candidate will teach seven courses a year including introduction to psychology, content courses from a few sub-disciplines in psychology; and advanced topics in the candidate’s area of interest; serve on college and other committees; and engage in scholarly activities in their area of expertise. The candidate will also mentor undergraduates as an academic advisor and on research projects. Preference will be given to applicants who place a high value on a liberal arts education and teaching.
