THREE TENURE-TRACK PROFESSORS: The Department of Psychology at the University of West Georgia invites applications for three tenure-track positions (two at the rank of Assistant Professor and one at the rank of Associate Professor) beginning August, 2019. Qualified applicants will have a doctorate in psychology or related discipline (which must include 18 hours of graduate psychology credits), demonstrated excellence in teaching, and an active research agenda. Successful candidates will teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels and engage in departmental and university service activities.
Founded in 1968 through a shared vision of humanistic psychology, the department supports innovative directions in theory, research, teaching, and practice. We offer BS, MA, and PhD degrees; our doctoral program emphasizes “Consciousness and Society.” Our programs incorporate existential, phenomenological, transpersonal, contemplative, critical, sociocultural, feminist, and depth psychologies in dialogue with more traditional research emphases (e.g., social psychology, developmental psychology, clinical psychology, theoretical psychology, ecological psychology, et al.). We emphasize a human science approach, qualitative methods, community praxis, cultural studies, social justice, consciousness studies, parapsychology, human potentiality, and spirituality.
Send curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, a writing sample, and a statement of your vision for psychology (including your teaching and research interests) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Search committee chair is Dr. Alan Pope.
Review of applications will begin on October 12 and will continue until the three positions are filled.
The University of West Georgia is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
