The Department of Psychology, Social Work, and Sociology seeks qualified applicants for a full-time non-tenure-track Assistant/Associate Professor of Psychology. Tenure-track status is a future possibility. Our psychology major is growing and we seek an energetic, student-centered, and collaborative colleague to help the program best serve students’ long-term needs and interests.
The ideal applicant will hold a Ph.D. in psychology or other highly related discipline and be able to support curricula in two or more of the following four areas: clinical, sport/exercise, counseling, and health psychology. Courses taught are likely to include Introductory Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Sports Psychology, Introduction to Counseling, and Theories of Personality. The position will also involve advising students and shaping our major curriculum.
Excellence as an educator is the top priority. Candidates will be expected to work with existing faculty to develop a sport, health, and exercise psychology minor with the goal of the minor developing into an interdisciplinary major track. Candidates will teach eight classes a year, and could have the opportunity to mentor faculty-student scholarship. The ability to develop and teach on-line courses is desired.
Successful candidates must also demonstrate a willingness to support Mount Mercy’s mission providing student-focused education in the spirit of the Sisters of Mercy. Mount Mercy University welcomes those of all backgrounds and is committed to excellence in education and community service.
Review of application materials will begin November 1, 2015 and will continue until the position is filled. Qualified candidates should submit (a) a letter of application, (b) a curriculum vitae, (c) a statement of teaching philosophy, (d) evidence of teaching effectiveness, and (e) contact information for three professional references. Submissions should be emailed as Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat attachments to: ude.ycremtm|rh#ude.ycremtm|rh with the subject line, “Psychology Faculty.” Only application materials emailed to this address will be considered.
