The University of Richmond’s Jepson School of Leadership Studies (JSLS) invites applications for a full-time tenure-track social scientist position at the rank of Assistant Professor for the 2022-23 academic year. Although ABDs will be considered, the successful candidate must have completed a Ph.D. in social psychology (or other related subfield of psychology), anthropology, sociology, or a related field, by August 16, 2022.
JSLS is a collaborative, inclusive community of scholars in anthropology, economics, history, literature, philosophy, politics, social psychology and religion. We seek applicants who study, or have the potential and desire to study, leadership by drawing on their disciplinary expertise to inform their work. We are particularly interested in candidates whose demonstrated teaching and/or scholarly interests focus on the theoretical and empirical analysis of group and intergroup processes.
Applicants should have the potential and desire to teach in an interdisciplinary undergraduate liberal arts environment. The successful candidate will be expected to teach elective courses related to their disciplinary training and to contribute to the curriculum by teaching such required courses as Leadership and the Social Sciences, Quantitative Social Science, and Theories and Models of Leadership. In their cover letter, candidates should demonstrate how their scholarly and teaching interests connect, or have the potential to connect, to leadership, broadly construed.
