DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY: Pomona College invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in the Department of Psychological Science beginning Fall 2023. The position is at the assistant professor rank. We seek candidates who show commitment to excellence in teaching and an active research program that involves undergraduate students. While the specific area of specialization within developmental psychology is open, we are particularly interested in candidates whose work focuses on early development from infancy through pre-adolescence. Furthermore, candidates whose scholarship addresses the social and cultural experiences of children within families, schools, or communities will be highly valued. Finally, we value a range of methodological approaches including quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods work.

Teaching load is two courses per semester. It is expected that two of these courses will include developmental psychology and a seminar in the candidate’s specialty area. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute a foundational course (introduction to psychological science and/or statistics) and to supervise senior theses. Applicants are also encouraged to describe the foundational and advanced courses they are prepared to teach in their cover letter and teaching statement. Furthermore, the successful candidate will have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and a demonstrated commitment to improving higher education for underrepresented groups. Pomona College, the founding member of the Claremont Colleges consortium, is a highly selective liberal arts college attracting an economically and geographically diverse student body and has a generous sabbatical policy and internal support for faculty research.

Please submit to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/22193 the following materials: a) cover letter, b) vitae, c) three brief statements addressing: teaching philosophy and experience; scholarship; and demonstrated ability to mentor a diverse student body, d) three representative reprints or pre-prints, and e) three letters of recommendation. In order to receive full consideration, applications should be submitted by October 15, 2022.
