WILLIAMS COLLEGE DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY seeks candidates for a tenure-track position in Developmental Psychology, beginning July 1, 2013. The appointment will normally be at the beginning assistant professor level, although a more senior appointment is possible under special circumstances. Candidates should have Ph.D. or dissertation completed by time of appointment. We seek excellent teachers with productive research programs who can involve undergraduate students in their research.

The yearly course load typically consists of a survey course on Developmental Psychology, the developmental section of a team-taught Introductory Psychology course, and an upper-level research seminar in the candidate’s area of interest, with an accompanying lab. Candidates will occasionally join the teaching rotation for our Experimentation & Statistics course or an interdisciplinary senior seminar in lieu of one of those courses. The deadline for applications is October 15, 2012.
