Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Behavioral Neuroscience

Williams College Department of Psychology seeks candidates for a tenure-track position in Behavioral Neuroscience, beginning July 1, 2020, at the assistant professor level (though a more senior appointment is possible under special circumstances). We seek productive scholars and excellent teachers whose research programs (using human and/or non-human models) can engage undergraduate students. Williams College offers substantial internal support for research and a generous sabbatical program. The teaching obligation normally consists of three courses per year (one of which includes a laboratory component) plus a January Winter Study course every-other year. Likely courses include the neuroscience section of a team-taught Introductory Psychology course, a co-taught Introduction to Neuroscience course, and an upper-level research seminar with laboratory component in the candidate’s area of interest. The successful candidate will also be expected to occasionally join the teaching rotation for our department’s methods and statistics laboratory course and a senior seminar. We are especially interested in candidates from underrepresented groups as well as individuals who have experience working with diverse undergraduate student populations. Additional information and resources can be found at our departmental web site: http://psychology.williams.edu.

Qualifications

Candidates should have a Ph.D. at the time of appointment. All offers of employment are contingent upon completion of a background check. Further information is available at http://dean-faculty.williams.edu/prospective-faculty/background-check-policy/.

Application Instructions

Applications must be submitted online at https://apply.interfolio.com/65799. Your application should include a cover letter in which you speak to your ability to work effectively with an undergraduate student population that is broadly diverse with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion. Your application should include a vita, three letters of reference, and up to three writing samples (articles). You should also submit a research statement that includes a description of how undergraduates will be included in your research program. Finally, please submit a teaching statement that includes a description of your pedagogical approach, evidence of teaching effectiveness (i.e., course evaluations), and a brief description of the course you would like to teach as an upper-level research seminar. For full consideration, applications must be submitted by October 1, 2019. Please contact Ms. Christine Russell, department administrative assistant, at cjr1@williams.edu with any questions.
