St. Norbert College (www.snc.edu) invites applications for a visiting assistant professor in psychology specializing in cognition (additional expertise in physiological psychology or neuroscience preferred) to begin in August 2017.  The position is renewable for up to three years, contingent on annual performance review. The successful candidate will teach a section of Memory and Cognition (an upper-level course with a laboratory) each year; share responsibility for teaching General Psychology and Basic Statistics; and offer additional courses consistent with her or his interests and expertise (for example, Physiological Psychology, or Behavioral Medicine and Health Psychology).   Faculty members typically teach two lab courses or three lecture/discussion courses each semester.  Opportunities exist for research and for recruiting undergraduates to serve as research assistants.  Visiting professors have no committee or academic advising duties.
