Manhattanville College is an independent, coeducational, liberal arts college with a nationally and internationally diverse student body of approximately 1,500 undergraduates and 900 graduate students, located 28 miles north of New York City on 100 acres.  Building on its heritage of social justice and social activism, the College prepares students through rigorous academic and co-curricular programs, for ethical and socially-responsible leadership in a global community.  We achieve this through integrated learning that combines classroom rigor with experiential opportunities, leadership with service, intimate attention with global reach, progressive change with enduring values, social commitment with ethical responsibility, and diversity with community. The College is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. We are committed to hiring qualified and diverse candidates and creating a community that is welcoming to all people, and made up of a diverse group of people. We encourage candidates from groups underrepresented in US higher education to apply.

The Department of Psychology at Manhattanville College invites applications for a tenure-track, assistant professor position to begin Fall 2019 in Community, Cultural, Developmental, Emotion, Personality or Social Action Psychology. The Psychology Program at Manhattanville is an undergraduate program and we are dedicated to the intellectual and academic development of our students. A strong candidate must share that dedication, must be committed to including undergraduate students in scholarship focused on diverse populations, multiculturalism, community or prevention research, and/or social action, and be committed to working with diverse student and community populations. We are especially interested in candidates who value, study, and teach issues of diversity. Infusing research regarding diverse populations into one’s teaching and our curriculum is of particular importance given the diversity of our students. Opportunities exist on campus to collaborate with our Center for Inclusion and our Mary T. Clark Center for Social Justice. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who can demonstrate through their teaching, research, and/or service that they can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our community.

The six full-time faculty members of the Psychology Department provide a supportive environment for the development of new colleagues including reduced teaching load and limited advising and committee responsibilities in the first year. Full time Psychology faculty members are expected to teach 6-7 courses per year (21 credits) including participation in teaching the core courses for the major (i.e., Fundamentals of Psychology, Statistics, Research Methods, and senior capstone courses), advise undergraduate psychology majors, supervise undergraduate research, include undergraduates in faculty research, and participate in the governance of the department and of the College. Applicants should also be willing to teach in the college’s interdisciplinary programs such as the first-year program or undergraduate honors program. For more information about our department, visit our website at
