Job Info


Valparaiso University invites applications for the position of Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology https://www.valpo.edu/psychology/. Valparaiso University ("Valpo"), a community of learning grounded in the Lutheran tradition of scholarship, freedom, and faith, prepares students to lead and serve both church and society. Located one hour southeast of Chicago on a 310-acre campus, Valpo is a comprehensive university with an enrollment of over 3,100 undergraduate and graduate students. Valpo is consistently recognized as one of the best private universities in the Midwest and is located in Valparaiso Indiana, a county seat of 30,000 residents with high quality schools and an active social community.

The Psychology Department is offering an excellent tenure-track opportunity for a teaching-focused individual with expertise in human cognition beginning in August 2022. The successful candidate must demonstrate an interest in teaching courses in human cognition, cognition lab, cognitive science, or neuropsychology. Other course assignments could include classes related to professional development, statistics, general psychology, or advanced lecture and laboratory courses in the specialty area of the candidate. The typical annual teaching load requires 3-4 courses per semester. Successful candidates must demonstrate the ability to engage undergraduate students in research. Ideally, individuals must have earned a doctorate in psychology by the position start date, but ABD applicants will be considered.

As a campus with an increasingly diverse student body, we encourage applications from individuals with a commitment to mentoring students from underrepresented communities. Please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, research statement, three confidential letters of recommendation, and contact information for three references to Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/100050. In your cover letter, please include brief statements of (a) how you might contribute to the university's distinctive mission, and (b) what experiences you have had which will enable you to mentor a diverse student body. Candidates who submit names of references should expect that the search committee will contact these references, in confidence, and that credentials will be confirmed prior to hire. Employment will require a satisfactory criminal background check. Applications will be considered until the position is filled; however, applicants are encouraged to apply by January 28, 2022 for timely consideration.

Valparaiso University does not unlawfully discriminate and aims to employ persons of various backgrounds and experiences to develop and support its diverse community. Its entire EOE policy can be found at http://www.valpo.edu/general-counsel/policies/equal-opportunity-policy/ .
