Past experience in empirical research is also welcomed. Finally, the ability to teach a seminar to graduate students on teaching in psychology is preferred (but not required).

The successful candidate is expected to develop and teach courses within the undergraduate curriculum, to maintain an active profile of professional activities in the discipline of psychology and/or its pedagogy, to perform university, public, and professional service, and to be able to work with students, faculty, and staff from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds.
