Two Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology Positions
The Psychology department at The College of Idaho invites applications for two 1-year visiting assistant professor positions beginning August 2022. We seek committed and transformative educators as teaching and mentorship are the highest priorities of the college.
The teaching load is 3-1-3 with a January term between fall and spring semesters when instructors can design and teach courses in their area of expertise or interest. For each position, teaching responsibilities could include courses such as Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology, General Psychology, Introduction to Psychological Science, and/or Qualitative Methods. There are opportunities to teach an exploratory or upper-division course in the candidate's area of expertise.
The successful candidate will be an active scholar interested in conducting research in collaboration with undergraduate students. Modest funds are available for research and conference travel. The department also offers a subject pool and structure for collaborating with undergraduate student researchers.
The College and department value expertise and experience in representation, inclusion, and equity issues. Members of marginalized and underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates should hold a PhD or related degree in psychology or an associated field. Advanced ABD candidates will be considered.
