The Department of Psychology at Harvard University welcomes applications from new or recent PhDs for the Harvard College Fellows Program. College Fellows are teaching-focused postdoctoral positions that consist of approximately 75% teaching, amounting to three undergraduate courses per year, and 25% research, with mentorship from a faculty member in the Psychology Department. We are eager to review applications from new or recent PhDs in any area of empirically-based psychology who have a strong interest in teaching, and anticipate curricular needs in social and affective science next year.
College Fellows will join the Psychology Department’s community of scholars who are committed to excellence in undergraduate education and inclusive teaching. College Fellows receive intensive pedagogical and course development mentorship through the Department and Harvard’s Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning. Past College Fellows have developed courses that take full advantage of the resources Harvard affords, offering courses through the Mindich Program in Engaged Scholarship, designing projects through which students apply academic knowledge beyond the classroom, securing innovation funds to explore and expand the boundaries of students’ learning experiences, and publishing scholarship in pedagogy journals.
We anticipate several College Fellow openings for the 2024-25 academic year (expected start date of July 1, 2024). Review of applications will begin immediately and continue on a rolling basis until positions are filled.
