The successful candidate will contribute 6 courses per academic year: in general, 5 Psychology courses (especially courses that contribute to our biological and behavioral (BB) or cognitive neuroscience (CN) domains and courses in our statistics and research methods and/or perspectives in psychology series) and 1 course in Rollins general education, Rollins Conference, or Honors programs. We are also seeking someone who can develop courses in their area of specialization and demonstrates potential for a productive program of research. The Rollins Psychology department’s laboratory facilities include two human behavior suites, a rat and mouse animal colony, and the Child Development & Student Research Center (Hume House), a laboratory preschool.
The successful candidate must be able to contribute to a diverse and inclusive learning and working environment at Rollins. We view differences (e.g. nationality, race, gender, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, physical ability, perspectives) as rich opportunities for understanding, learning, and growth.
