Developmental Psychology Tenure Track Appointment

Sarah Lawrence College invites applications for a tenure track position in Psychology beginning fall 2022. We seek a scholar whose research and teaching interests are in developmental psychology. Particular strengths in developmental theory, child clinical and/or cultural perspectives are welcome.

This position includes teaching both undergraduate and Master’s level graduate students, primarily in small seminar classes (which involve independent work with students) at both the introductory and more advanced level.

There will also be opportunities to teach and advise graduate student theses in the Master’s program in Child Development. Early tenure review may be available for already tenured candidates.

The application should include the following: cover letter, CV, course descriptions for two proposed courses, a statement of teaching philosophy, a statement of research interests, a sample of scholarly writing and three letters of recommendation.
