Position Summary:  The Psychology Department at Gettysburg College invites applications for two tenure-track positions at the Assistant Professor level beginning August 2023 – one in Neuroscience (Behavioral Neuroscience or similar) and one in Clinical or Counseling Psychology

Candidates will contribute courses to our rigorous undergraduate psychology curriculum and maintain productive research programs that can engage undergraduate research students.  The teaching load for each position will be five courses per year, where either a lecture or laboratory section is considered to be one course.  Teaching responsibilities will include 200-level courses in the candidate’s area of specialization, an advanced laboratory course in the candidate’s research area, and may include introductory psychology or research methods.  Candidates will be expected to serve as academic advisors and participate in the governance of the department and college. 

Qualifications:  We seek colleagues who have a genuine interest in teaching, research, and advising/mentoring undergraduate students.  Candidates should have a doctorate in psychology or closely related fields;  ABD will be considered if the degree will be completed prior to the start date. Candidates must demonstrate a commitment to mentoring and educating a broad range of undergraduate students but particularly those who are traditionally underrepresented in the sciences.  Candidates are expected to become high quality teachers and productive researchers, and Gettysburg College provides support through start-up funds, departmental and external faculty mentorship, department-specific tenure and promotion guidelines, internal professional development funding, and family-friendly policies.  Each position has a dedicated multi-room laboratory space including a behavioral neuroscience and animal care suite.  

We especially encourage applications from candidates who can demonstrate through their teaching, scholarship, governance, or lived experience that they can contribute to the diversity and inclusive excellence of our community.  We also strongly encourage applications from scientists from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in STEM.

Application Details:  Application materials should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, and a summary of the candidate’s research interests and experience including a description of how the research program may engage undergraduate students.  The statement must address experience and/or knowledge regarding issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion in the classroom and laboratory.  The statement must include the current email addresses for at least three professional references.  Professional references will be contacted by Gettysburg College to submit letters of recommendation electronically.  Applications and letters of recommendation received by October 7, 2022 will be given fullest consideration, but submissions will continue to be accepted and reviewed until the position is filled.  Inquiries may be addressed to Professor Daniel McCall at
