Bennington is a residential liberal arts college distinguished by its progressive approach to higher education. The College was founded on the principle of active engagement in learning, which is manifest in individualized plans of study developed by students together with faculty. We aim to educate students towards self-fulfillment and constructive social purposes, and we believe that equity, diversity, and inclusivity - in community and in curriculum - are vital to achieving those aims.
We invite applications for a full-time faculty position in social psychology, beginning Fall 2016. The successful candidate will be a scholar actively engaged in empirical research, conversant in statistical analysis, research methodology and design, and able to supervise undergraduate research projects using experimental and quasi-experimental methods. Further, the successful candidate will be interested in teaching multi-disciplinary courses within and beyond the traditional social sciences, and will have an active interest in cross-cultural psychology or gender studies. The candidate should have a PhD in hand by the time the position begins.
Faculty members at Bennington are teacher-practitioners whose professional work is in ongoing dialogue with their teaching and advising. Faculty teach five courses per year and fully engaged student advising is an expectation. The successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to developing curriculum that invites participation of students with a broad range of interests and reaches out to faculty in disciplines throughout the College.
