Tenure-Stream Assistant Professor of Affective Science at Colgate University

    Dear Colleagues,

    My department at Colgate University is hiring. I love working here and would be happy to answer any questions about the position. The posting is below:

    The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Colgate University invites applications for a tenure-stream position in the area of affective science at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in the fall semester of 2024. The specific area of human-focused research is open, but scholarship focused on clinical, developmental, and/or social-personality psychology is preferred. Completion of Ph.D. is required prior to or shortly after the date of hire.

    Colgate is a top liberal arts college where excellence in teaching and research are expected and supported. The successful candidate will join a psychological science and neuroscience faculty deeply committed to a strong, research-oriented program and to a curriculum that integrates psychological science and neuroscience perspectives. The department will be housed in a newly renovated, state-of-the-art building starting in the spring semester of 2024. Colgate supports faculty in their research program through competitive startup funds, internal funding mechanisms, and support for seeking external funding. Colgate recently inaugurated a new Mind, Brain and Behavior Initiative that provides support and opportunities for interdisciplinary teaching and collaborative research.

    The teaching load is equivalent to five courses per year. Teaching responsibilities are likely to include staff-taught courses (e.g., Introduction to Psychological Science, Research Methods, or Statistics), elective courses in the candidate’s specialty area, and supervision of senior thesis work (which normally counts as one course load). The successful candidate also will be expected to participate in all-university programs, including the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum.

    Review of applications will begin on September 15, 2023 and continue until the position is filled. Candidates should prepare a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of teaching and research interests, and names of three people who can provide letters of recommendation. As Colgate strives to be a community supportive of diverse perspectives and identities, candidates should also prepare a statement discussing their approach to teaching and/or scholarship in a diverse and inclusive educational environment. Application materials must be submitted through Interfolio. A guide for applicants with important additional information about the application process can be found here.

    The salary range is $89,500 (for ABD applicants) to $93,500 (for applicants with a PhD in hand). Faculty are eligible for a competitive benefits package that includes housing assistance and health insurance. Colgate is a member of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity. Applicants with dual-career considerations can find postings of other employment opportunities at Colgate and at other institutions of higher education in upstate New York here. It is the policy of Colgate University not to discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment on the basis of their race, color, creed, religion, age, sex, pregnancy, national origin, marital status, disability, protected Veterans status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, familial status, or any other categories covered by law. Colgate is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. Candidates from historically underrepresented groups, women, persons with disabilities, and protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
