The University of Chicago Department of Psychology invites applications for a full-time lecturer for the Academic Year 2019-20 (October 1, 2019). The appointment is for one year. The lecturer will be responsible for teaching the equivalent of 6, quarter-long, undergraduate classes. Assignments may include teaching in the University of Chicago’s team-taught core curriculum (i.e., the “Mind” course), introductory survey-level classes and upper level elective seminars in Psychology. The position requires a PhD in Psychology or a related discipline focusing on basic psychological research questions, and a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching. We are particularly interested in candidates who can teach a wide range of classes in different areas of psychological science, including undergraduate level statistics, but the area of specialization is open.
Applicants must apply online at the University of Chicago’s Interfolio website at apply.interfolio.com/65892 . Applications are required to include 1) a cover letter, 2) a current curriculum vitae, and 3) a teaching statement. In addition, as optional and if available, teaching evaluations from courses previously taught are strongly preferred, as well as syllabi from prior courses taught. Also, three letters of reference are required to be submitted online. The search committee will begin reviewing applications on August 26, 2019, and will continue to consider new applications until the position is filled or the search is closed.
