Antioch College is seeking applications for a tenure-track position in psychology to begin August 15, 2022.

Antioch College seeks a candidate in social psychology to contribute to a student-centered interdisciplinary undergraduate liberal arts curriculum. A Ph.D. in psychology is required. Evidence of successful teaching at the undergraduate level is strongly preferred. The successful candidate will work with a new clinical psychology faculty to build a dynamic psychology program at Antioch College.

Candidates should demonstrate a commitment to rigorous undergraduate education and the ability to develop innovative and interdisciplinary courses in psychology. Candidates should also be prepared to teach within a Self-Designed Major curriculum that emphasizes the links between academic knowledge and experiential/applied learning. The teaching load for this position is six courses per academic year on the 2-2-2 quarter system, with some flexibility in the load distribution through optional one-month block courses.

The successful candidate will have broad training in psychology and will be able to teach a range of psychology courses, including survey courses (General Psychology, Social Psychology) and courses in their areas of specialization. Scholars with critically oriented and interdisciplinary research agendas are highly desired. Topical areas of specialization include (but are not limited to): prejudice and discrimination, race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, economic inequality, and social psychological studies of political and social movements. Candidates that can teach supplemental courses in sociology or related fields are especially welcomed to apply.

In addition to offering courses within the discipline, the candidate is expected to contribute to a collaborative General Education Program. The successful candidate is expected to maintain an active research agenda, participate in program development, provide academic advising, guide students in developing their Self-Designed Majors, and oversee Senior Capstone Projects.
