FROM HERC (Upstate New York):
Assistant Professor in Psychology
The Department of Psychology at Skidmore College invites applications for a tenure-track position in Psychology at the level of Assistant Professor to begin Fall 2013. Applications are invited from candidates specializing in the mechanisms, processes, or consequences of diversity broadly defined (e.g., culture, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, socioeconomics). Candidates may be trained in one of several areas of Psychology (e.g., Developmental, Cognitive, Social, Personality, Clinical, Health), but the area of expertise should be related to issues of diversity within that subfield. This position covers core courses in Psychology (including an introductory psychology course and/or statistical and experimental design courses), lecture and lab courses in the candidate's area of expertise, and supervision of student research. Within the context of a five-course teaching load, this position occasionally also includes the coverage of an interdisciplinary seminar (topic open) for first-year students.
Preference will be given to those candidates with teaching experience who have a Ph.D. in psychology or, if ABD, will have completed their degree by Fall 2013, and to candidates with potential for developing a significant research program in the psychology of diversity and contributing to the college's goal of building a diverse educational environment.
Skidmore College seeks candidates who are firmly committed to undergraduate education including the involvement of undergraduates in productive research programs that are theoretically and methodologically sophisticated and of nationally recognized quality. Excellent teaching and research facilities support many opportunities for faculty/student collaborative work in the classroom, lab, and field. Additional responsibilities include advising students and service activities at the college.
We encourage applications from under-represented groups as well as individuals who have experience teaching diverse populations of students; women and minority candidates are encouraged to apply.
Review of applications begins October 15, 2012 and we expect to fill the position by the end of December 2012. We invite potential candidates attending the American Psychological Association Conference (Orlando, FL, August 2-5, 2012) to email Dr. Mark Rye at ude.eromdiks|eyrm#ude.eromdiks|eyrm in advance and arrange a meeting.
