The Department of Psychology at Skidmore College invites applications for a tenure-track position in Psychology at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor beginning Fall 2014. Applications are invited from all areas of specialization within developmental psychology, but preference will be given to those whose teaching and research focuses on children. The faculty member in this position will teach core courses (introductory psychology and/or research methods) and courses in the area of expertise, and will supervise undergraduate research. Within the context of a five-course teaching load, the position also occasionally includes teaching a first-year interdisciplinary seminar (topic open).
Skidmore seeks to attract an academically and culturally diverse faculty, especially those who can contribute to the growing diversity and excellence of the community through their teaching, scholarship, and service. Enthusiasm for teaching, mentoring, and advising a diverse population of students is essential. Candidates should be firmly committed to undergraduate education, including the involvement of undergraduates in 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.
Skidmore is a liberal arts institution of approximately 2,400 students, with 21% students of color, and 248 full-time faculty members, located in upstate New York. Skidmore offers support for faculty development in many ways, including pre-tenure sabbaticals, laboratory start-up funds, and internal grants.
Preference will be given to candidates with teaching experience who have a Ph.D. in psychology or, if ABD, will complete the Ph.D. by Fall 2014, and who have potential to develop a significant research program in developmental psychology.
Candidates should submit all materials online by September 30, 2013.
