Position Details

Cultural Psychology. The Department of Psychology at Wesleyan University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in Cultural Psychology, beginning July 1, 2021. The department seeks candidates with expertise and scholarly research on the cultural bases of psychological processes whose research investigates how shared meanings (e.g., values) and cultural practices affect psychological processes. A research program focusing on any area of cultural psychology is welcome. Also welcome are interdisciplinary connections in the candidate’s research program. The ideal candidate should show expertise in multiple methods, including qualitative methods.

The candidate will be expected to teach four courses per year: a course in cultural psychology, two specialized courses in their area of expertise, and one course in qualitative research methods. Additional duties include advising and mentoring undergraduate students and engagement in department and university-level service. The Department has 18 full-time faculty members in the areas of cognition, culture, development, neuroscience, psychopathology, and social psychology. Members also contribute to interdisciplinary programs in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Neuroscience and Behavior, Science and Society, Educational Studies, and American Studies and participate in a departmental postdoctoral program.

Minimum Qualifications

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Psychology or related field in hand by the time of appointment to be hired as an Assistant Professor; a successful candidate may be hired as an Instructor if the candidate does not have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment, but will complete the Ph.D.in Psychology or related field within one year of hire.

Special Instructions To Applicants

You will be asked to upload electronic versions of the items we require, which are a 1) cover letter; 2) curriculum vitae; 3) up to 3 reprints (in a single pdf); 4) a research statement; 5) a teaching statement; 6) and teaching evaluations (if available). In the cover letter, applicants should describe how they will embrace the college’s commitment to fostering an inclusive community, as well as their experience working with individuals from historically marginalized or underserved groups. In your research statement, we invite you to discuss your research approach in the context of ongoing discussions about research practices and open science and, if applicable, ways in which your research engages underrepresented populations in psychological research and/or focuses on matters related to race/ethnicity, class, or gender/sexuality.

You will also be asked to provide the email addresses of three referees from whom we may obtain confidential letters of recommendation (please double-check the accuracy of the email addresses of the referees you name to insure that you have the most up-to-date email addresses for each one).

After you have submitted all of the required documents, you will see a confirmation number. At that point, each of your referees whose email address you have provided will receive an automatically-generated email requesting that he or she submit a letter of reference for you.

Additional Information

Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2020.

Please contact Cathy Race (crace@wesleyan.edu) if you have questions about the application process.
