The Psychology program at Purchase College, SUNY, invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Clinical Psychology, Counseling Psychology, Clinical Neuropsychology, Affective Sciences or related areas beginning Fall 2024. Our department values inclusive research and teaching, as demonstrated through our commitment to student-faculty mentorship in our research-focused curriculum.
Purchase College is a primarily undergraduate, Hispanic-serving institution located 25 miles north of New York City with 4 conservatory programs in visual and performing arts. Purchase is ranked by US News in the Top 10 public US liberal arts colleges and is among the Best 388 Colleges by Princeton Review. The Psychology Department at Purchase is nationally ranked by the US News as a top undergraduate psychology program. We welcome candidates with a specialty in clinical or counseling psychology, the affective sciences, family studies or clinical or cognitive assessment who can teach lower-level and upper-level undergraduate courses in clinical psychology, counseling, therapy, disorders, assessment, treatment, or other related topics in the candidate’s area of expertise. The candidate should also be able to join the teaching rotation for some required courses (e.g., Introduction to Psychology, Research Methods, and Statistics). The faculty teaching load is typically 6 courses per year (one course of which is the supervision of six senior project students each year).
The successful candidate will be prepared to maintain an active research lab while providing research mentorship to undergraduate students from various backgrounds. All undergraduate students at Purchase complete year-long senior projects, many involving empirical research (subject to IRB approval) under the supervision of a faculty sponsor. Thus, faculty should have a research program in which they can mentor undergraduates through collecting and/or analyzing data within the timeframe of their senior project.
A doctoral degree in Psychology or a related field by August 2023 is required. Although the candidate must be qualified to teach undergraduate courses in clinical or counseling psychology and to conduct research, they do not need to be licensed to practice. The department is seeking applications from candidates who can demonstrate experience with diverse, multicultural populations through their own background, research training, or past teaching experiences, and should highlight this in their application materials.
