The Psychology program at Purchase College, SUNY, invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position beginning Fall 2022. Our department values inclusive research and teaching as seen through our commitment to student-faculty mentorship and in our research-focused curriculum.
We welcome candidates from all areas. Special consideration will be given to those who areas of specialization supplement the current strengths of the Department, such as those who conduct basic or applied research in the affective sciences, aging (or research related to senior populations), clinical psychology, education or social work, personality, psychobiology, or other areas. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research and teaching take intersectional approaches, engaging with issues of race, culture, gender, class, and/or equity. The ideal candidate would be able to contribute to the Global Black Studies minor or the Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx major.
The successful candidate will be prepared to maintain an active research lab with groups of undergraduate students from various backgrounds. The faculty teaching load is typically 6 courses per year (one course of which is the supervision of year-long student research projects). The remaining five courses taught per year may include required courses and courses in the candidate's area of expertise.
