Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Cognitive Psychology



The Department of Psychology at Dickinson College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Cognitive Psychology beginning Fall 2019. The area of specialty is open, but we encourage applications from individuals whose interests lie in human cognition or cognitive neuroscience.


The successful candidate will teach psychology courses in the area of cognition: Introduction to Cognitive Psychology (taught as Perception, Memory, and Thought), Research Methods in Cognitive Psychology, and a seminar in Cognitive Psychology; the focus of the latter two courses will lie in the candidate’s area of expertise. The candidate will also teach, on a rotating basis with other psychology faculty, Analysis of Psychological Data (Statistics) and a First Year Seminar. Teaching load is five courses per year.



Candidates must have a PhD in Cognitive Psychology (or a closely related field) by the time of the appointment. We expect a strong commitment to teaching in a liberal arts environment and the ability to involve undergraduates in research. Our largest classes have a capacity of 35 students. The ability to create inclusive learning environments for an increasingly diverse student body will be an important characteristic of the successful candidate.



Dickinson College is a highly selective four-year, independent liberal arts college with 2,300 students. It is located 20 minutes west of Harrisburg, PA, and is a two-hour drive from Baltimore, Washington DC, and Philadelphia. The Psychology Department's research-rich curriculum aims to increase students' abilities to understand and produce psychological research and to recognize and critically evaluate claims about psychological phenomena: www.dickinson.edu/homepage/44/psychology



Interested candidates should apply for this position electronically via https://jobs.dickinson.edu. Please submit a cover letter, curriculum vita, statement of teaching philosophy, course evaluations (if available), description of research program (including plans for future research involving undergraduate research assistants), an unofficial graduate transcript, and three letters of recommendation. Deadline for applications is Friday, January 11, 2019 at midnight. Please direct any questions regarding the position to: psych@dickinson.edu.



The College is committed to building a representative and diverse faculty, administrative staff, and student body. We encourage applications from all qualified persons.
