Job description

Assistant Professor of Psychological Sciences:

The Saint Mary’s College Department of Psychological Sciences invites applications for two tenure track Assistant Professor positions to begin August, 2019. Due to retirements, advancement, and departmental growth, the department is in the exciting position to hire across different subfields.

One position centers on Developmental Psychology, and the candidate will teach some combination of Child Development, Lifespan Development, Introduction to Psychology, and courses in the candidate’s area of expertise. The Department has an ongoing relation with an on-campus child development center, which would be ideal for candidates who study child development.

Another position centers on Statistics and Methods, and the candidate will teach some combination of Statistics, Research Methods, Personality Psychology, and Psychological Testing.

The individuals in these positions will each teach three courses per semester based on the needs of the department and the teaching interests of the successful candidates. The ability for these candidates to contribute to one of our growing interdisciplinary programs (Neuroscience, Environmental Studies, Gender & Women’s Studies, Gerontology, Communicative Sciences, Justice Studies) is a plus. Qualified candidates whose teaching and research interests involve related, but not identical, areas such as those described above, or a combination of those described above, are also encouraged to apply.

These positions require a Ph.D. either in Psychology or a related field. Candidates who are A.B.D. will be considered. All successful candidates will contribute to the mission of the college which promotes a life of intellectual vigor, aesthetic appreciation, religious sensibility, and social responsibility. The Department of Psychological Sciences particularly emphasizes excellence in writing and research, and strong candidates will have an interest in inclusive pedagogy. Saint Mary’s College has a mission-driven responsibility to be diverse, inclusive, and equitable.

Applicants should submit a cover letter which includes a statement of how the candidate addresses their commitment to diversity, vitae, available evidence of teaching success, and three (3) professional references electronically to [email protected] or via U.S. Mail to Ms. Pam Blair, Saint Mary’s College, Spes Unica Hall, Box 3, Notre Dame, Indiana 46556.

Review of applications will begin December 7, 2018, and continue until the positions are filled.
