Description

 

PSYCHOLOGY, Visiting Assistant Professor, area open, with a preference for sensation & perception, cognitive psychology, or cognitive neuroscience. We believe the best way to learn the science of psychology is by engaging our faculty and students in a collaborative search for new knowledge about human cognition, emotion, and behavior. To this end, we have a unique curriculum that engages students in research at all levels. The successful candidate will be expected to teach with passion, to be engaged in an active and sustained program of research that contributes to the global effort to advance psychological knowledge, to involve Colby’s exceptional undergraduates in that research, and to become an active and engaged member of our academic community. We are especially interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching, and/or service, will promote diversity, inclusion, and equity at Colby.

 

This is a one-year position, with the possibility of renewal for a second year. Teaching responsibilities include introductory and advanced courses in sensation & perception, cognitive psychology, or neuroscience, as well as supervision of student research. The ability to contribute to the department’s methodology and statistics offerings is desirable. The specific area of research interest is open, but we are especially interested in candidates who are committed to reproducible science, and who have research interests that would be compatible with and complementary to the current research programs in the department. For more information about the department, please see our web site at https://www.colby.edu/psych/. The Ph.D. should be completed by the start date of September 1, 2022. Colby is a highly selective liberal arts college recognized for excellence in undergraduate education and close student-faculty interaction.

 

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests that demonstrate commitment to the value of diversity and to inclusive teaching, a summary of teaching evaluations, copies of publications or in-press manuscripts, and three confidential letters of recommendation. Electronic submission of application materials through Interfolio is required at http://apply.interfolio.com/105238. Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled. Questions about this search should be directed to Prof. Christopher Soto at [email protected]
