St. Mary's College of Maryland, the national public honors college, is accepting applications for a TENURE-TRACK ASSISTANT PROFESSOR IN BEHAVIORAL NEUROSCIENCE/BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY to begin August 2023.
Applicants must have a doctorate in Behavioral Neuroscience or a related field by August 2023 and be committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching. Teaching responsibilities will include general courses in the psychology major (e.g., Intro to Psychology; a two-semester sequence in research methods, statistics and writing), core courses in behavioral neuroscience, and topics courses in one's area of specialization. A traditional course load is 3 courses per semester, although supervision of senior thesis projects counts toward the teaching load. Participation and occasional teaching within the neuroscience program is encouraged. The development of an active research program involving undergraduates is expected, and a commitment to culturally competent teaching/mentoring and fostering inclusive and equitable learning environments is essential. The psychology department consists of 14 faculty that support the psychology major, which is among the largest at the College, and has strong connections with the neuroscience major. St. Mary's College is committed to excellence in teaching and in undergraduate research. More than 72% of psychology majors pursue advanced degrees upon graduating. Non-sectarian since its founding, St. Mary's College of Maryland, a public Carnegie Baccalaureate, Arts and Sciences institution located in St. Mary's City, 70 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., has been designated a national public honors college. With selective admissions policies, academically talented students, and a rigorous curriculum, we offer a small college experience similar to that found at exceptional private colleges. St. Mary's faculty benefit from a comprehensive program of support for scholarship, research, travel, and curriculum development, including course releases for pretenure faculty and leaves for tenured faculty. The quality of life is enhanced by the recreational opportunities of the Chesapeake region and by our proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. St. Mary's College embodies diversity and inclusion in its mission. We create an environment that recognizes the value of individual and group differences and we encourage inquiries from applicants who will contribute to our cultural and racial/ethnic diversity. Application materials should include a cover letter that addresses how the candidate will contribute to a campus culture of inclusion, curriculum vitae (including email address), statement of teaching philosophy, statement of research interests, and evidence of teaching effectiveness (if available).
