The Department of Psychology at Occidental College invites applications for a tenure-track position in Social Psychology at the level of Assistant Professor or advanced Assistant Professor (eligible for early tenure). We hope to find someone with specific scholarly interests related to race, ethnicity, gender, age, or economic disadvantage. The position involves teaching five undergraduate courses per year in a diverse liberal arts environment at the introductory level (e.g., Introduction to Psychology, Research Methods, Introduction to Statistics) and advanced level (e.g., Social Psychology, special topics seminars). Applicants should have their Ph.D. in Social Psychology, Community Psychology, or a related field completed by the time of appointment (fall of 2022) and should have a strong commitment to teaching and demonstrated proficiency in carrying out a program of research. Previous teaching experience is required and postdoctoral research is desirable. The successful applicant will be expected to develop an independent, externally-fundable program of research that involves undergraduate researchers. The successful applicant should also be committed to undergraduate student development and original empirical research. We are open to applicants from all areas of Social Psychology but are particularly interested in those whose research informs our understanding of social change and social justice.
