Instructor or Assistant/Associate Professor (Tenure Track)

The Psychology Department at Franklin & Marshall College invites applications for a tenure-track professorship beginning July 1, 2018. Rank will be at the assistant professor level or instructor depending on qualifications. For a more experienced candidate, appointment at the level of Associate Professor (without tenure) with a shortened tenure clock is possible.

We welcome applications from candidates whose scholarship focuses on the mechanisms, biomarkers, or consequences of biopsychosocial processes involved in health and disease, sensation and perception, human stress and resilience, or psychopathology. The successful candidate will offer courses in Design and Statistics, his/her specialty area, and the College's general education curriculum. The position is housed in the Psychology Department (a department seated in the Natural Sciences Division of the College). The successful candidate will participate in the Biological Foundations of Behavior integrative program (with Biology) and may have the opportunity to participate in the Scientific and Philosophical Studies of Mind program (with Philosophy) and/or the Public Health program (with Biology and Government) as appropriate. Teaching load is 3/2.

The person selected for this tenure-track position may also be considered for a supplemental appointment as a Franklin & Marshall High Impact Emerging Scholar. These are scholars who possess outstanding promise for inspiring and supporting the educational development of underrepresented minority students in a higher educational setting such as F&M. High Impact Emerging Scholars (HIES) demonstrate similarly high promise for positively impacting the campus’s organizational and academic culture to make it more inclusive of and responsive to underrepresented minority students. Selected finalists that meet these additional qualifications, in addition to those outlined by this ad, may be nominated by the department as F&M High Impact Emerging Scholar. If selected as a HIES, the person will receive a two-year appointment (additional to the tenure-track appointment) that begins as soon as the person joins the campus on the tenure-track. The HIES program supports the acceleration of one's research trajectory with a significantly reduced teaching load for two years along with supportive mentoring to advance the scholar's research and professional development. Candidates interested in being considered for nomination should indicate their interest in their cover letter and describe pertinent experience that they might have had in helping underrepresented groups.

Submit cover letter, curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts, research and teaching statements, teaching evaluations, selected pre/reprints, and three letters of recommendation via Pursuant to the college’s vision for cultivating a diverse, inclusive community, describe how you might advance the College’s commitment to teaching and mentoring students with a variety of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, but for full consideration, all materials must be submitted by October 1, 2017. Direct inquiries to Dr. Tim Roth (
