Send a letter of application, a current curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, and contact information for three professional references to: hr@washjeff.edu and include Psychology Faculty Search in the subject line of your email. Official graduate and undergraduate transcripts may be requested during the selection process and will be required upon hire.
