The Wesleyan College Department of Psychology announces an opening for a tenure-track assistant professor beginning August 2016. Preference will be given to candidates with strong teaching backgrounds, as well as research interests that could successfully incorporate undergraduate assistants. Specialization is somewhat open, as the department seeks someone to complement our current faculty who cover Clinical, Social/Forensic, and Comparative/Neuroscience areas. Candidates must hold a PhD by the start of the position. We place great value on the multicultural representation of our student body and encourage applications from individuals who can add to the diversity of our faculty.
Wesleyan College, a liberal arts college for women founded in 1836, emphasizes teaching excellence and seminar-based classes. The psychology major is one of the most popular at the college, with a large number of majors going on to graduate school. In addition to classroom space, the department has dedicated lab spaces for research. The teaching load consists of 21 hours (7 courses) across the academic year, and may occasionally include evening courses. Courses to be taught include general psychology, statistics, research methods, and courses within the applicant’s specialization. Additional responsibilities include advising and committee work.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, evidence of teaching competency, three letters of reference, and graduate transcript(s) to: Dr. Brooke Bennett-Day, Chair, Department of Psychology, Wesleyan College, 4760 Forsyth Rd., Macon, GA. 31210. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled but applicants should submit required support materials by February 18, 2016. EOE
