Job Description:

The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Fairfield University invites applications for a
full-time, tenure track assistant professor position to begin in the 2023-2024 academic year. Applicants should have teaching expertise and
scholarly interests in developmental, applied developmental, or community psychology, as well as a strong commitment to excellence in
undergraduate teaching. Applicants are expected to have completed a Ph.D. in psychology or a related field, but strong ABD candidates will
also be considered.

The teaching load is typically 3 courses per semester. One of these is a developmental psychology course that
includes a community-engaged learning component. Additional courses may include lifespan developmental psychology, cross-cultural
development, adult development and aging, psychological statistics, research methods, general psychology, and courses in the candidate's
area of expertise. Preference will be given to candidates with a demonstrated record of community-engaged teaching and an interest in
student/faculty collaborative research.

The department consists of twelve full-time faculty representing a range of specialties and
is housed in a spacious, well-equipped facility in the Bannow Science Center. There is a vibrant culture of undergraduate student-faculty
research and a growing institutional emphasis on the health sciences. Psychology is one of the largest majors in the College of Arts &
Sciences, offering a Psychology Club, a large internship program, and chapters of Sigma Xi and Psi Chi. The Department also offers a major
in behavioral neuroscience and a master's program in industrial/organizational psychology. The salary and benefits for the position are
highly competitive. Fairfield University is a Jesuit institution, consistently ranked as a top comprehensive university in New England,
located in the scenic shoreline community of Fairfield, CT, one hour from New York City along Long Island Sound. Our five Colleges and
Professional Schools enroll approximately 4,300 undergraduate and 1,200 graduate students.
