The Bates College Department of Psychology invites applications for a one-year Visiting Assistant Professor position in clinical/counseling psychology beginning August 2023. We seek a candidate who can offer courses and has scholarly interest in areas that address pressing social issues or problems, broadly defined (for example, environmental justice, health or medical psychology, immigration, trauma and violence, addiction, adverse childhood events, resilience, and mental health in minoritized groups). We are interested in attracting candidates who share our commitment to the recruitment, retention, and mentoring of students from a wide range of underrepresented and marginalized identities including those from diverse racial, ethnic, and LGBTQAIP backgrounds. In addition, we seek candidates who can bring interdisciplinary, intersectional, and social justice perspectives to their teaching. The successful candidate will have a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching (5 courses/year including labs), will be able to teach introductory psychology (101), abnormal psychology, upper level electives, and will supervise undergraduate research.
The college's mission statement celebrates "the transformative power of our differences." Accordingly, we believe that campus diversity contributes to student learning, and we embrace our college's aim to extend access to a Bates education to a wide range of students. Candidates who can enhance the diversity of the faculty and/or contribute to supporting an increasingly diverse student body are encouraged to apply.
