Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) - PsychologyEmployer Website: https://apply.interfolio.com/130273
The Psychology Program at Bard College invites applications for a cluster of two full-time, tenure-track appointments at the rank of Assistant Professor to start in the fall of 2024. Candidates from any subfield of Psychology are encouraged to apply; we anticipate filling one of these positions with a candidate whose research falls within an applied area of the field, broadly conceptualized. The second position may augment the first while further diversifying the Program’s existing areas of specialization (see https://psychology.bard.edu/) and sustainably supporting faculty-student research.
In order to facilitate long-term success across undergraduate teaching, research, and service to the Bard-Annandale community, the standard 3:2 course load will be reduced in the first year to 2:2. Regular teaching responsibilities will include Introduction to Psychological Science, a laboratory course focused either on research methods or statistics, and both 200-level survey courses and upper-level seminars in the candidates’ areas of specialization. Additional responsibilities include the supervision of a diverse range of Senior Projects and the advising of undergraduate students.
- Demonstrated commitment to quality, innovative undergraduate liberal arts teaching
- A commitment to working with diverse, academically-oriented undergraduates
- An active research agenda with a concrete plan for maintaining it at an institution like Bard
- The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in Psychology or a related field by the start date
This salary range reflects the College's good faith and reasonable estimate of the compensation for the position at the time of the job posting. Salary decisions are dependent on several factors including but not limited to market and organizational considerations, experience, and qualifications of a selected candidate as well as internal and external equity.

We strive to create a learning environment that upholds the College’s mission to meaningfully include the voices, works, and ideas of communities and cultures historically marginalized in liberal arts and sciences education. DEI at Bard aims to work at the systemic as well as the interpersonal level to address the implicit and explicit ways racism, sexism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and religious discrimination impact the learning process.
