The Psychology Department at Rhodes College invites applications for a tenure-track position. The successful candidate must possess a firm commitment to teaching, scholarship, and service at a liberal arts college. Teaching responsibilities will include some combination of the following: introductory psychology, educational psychology, child and/or adolescent development, learning and motivation, psychological assessment, advanced research methods in psychology, and upper-level research and seminar courses in the candidate's research area. Candidates must have earned a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology or a related psychological field and previous teaching experience is desirable. There are a number of interdisciplinary fields that yield graduates who would be appropriate for this position (e.g., Liberal Studies in Urban Childhood programs, Interdisciplinary Human Development, Educational Science programs). We will accept ABD applicants; however, the Ph.D. must be conferred by the August 2014 start date. The successful candidate will be expected to teach a 3/2 load during a two-semester academic year, establish an active program of research involving undergraduates, participate in the life of the College, and contribute to an interdisciplinary Educational Studies minor. Opportunities for research may be available through our partnerships with Rhodes Learning Corridor schools and in the newly formed Shelby County School district.
