We are not accepting applications for this position at this time.

The Department of Psychology and Education invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position.  This position is open rank and will begin fall 2016.

The successful candidate will teach courses within the area of social psychology at the introductory and advanced levels as well as teach one core course within our introductory sequence (i.e., introductory psychology, statistics, or research methods).  The teaching load is 4 courses per year.  Interest in contributing as a collaborative member of the department is important.

We conceptualize social psychology broadly, and are open to a wide range of areas of expertise and methodological approaches.  We are seeking a colleague who will 1) contribute to intersections within our department such as in the areas of social-biological, social-education, or social-personality and 2) allow us to build stronger bridges between our department and other departments or programs within the College (e.g., Gender Studies, Economics, Biology, Africana Studies).  

We seek a candidate eager to build a rigorous program of high quality research that integrally involves the contributions of undergraduate researchers.  The Psychology and Education Department offers excellent resources for lab research, fieldwork, and partnerships with community-based sites.   

Mount Holyoke supports faculty scholarship through start-up funds, travel support, internal grants, and sabbaticals.  Mount Holyoke also offers a comprehensive faculty mentoring program, a teaching and learning initiative, and invests in faculty across the career span. Candidates applying at the Associate or Full Professor rank should describe their experience mentoring junior faculty through the tenure process.  All candidates should have a Ph.D. at the time of application.
