Applicants must clearly articulate their contributions to equity, diversity, and justice with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, clinical approaches, life experiences, and/or service toward building an equitable, inclusive, and diverse scholarly environment.

In addition to teaching, the position requires weekly office hours, attending faculty meetings, participation in assessment of student learning, and service to the department, college, and university. The successful candidate will be held to the standards and requirements of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and the Department of Psychology for recommending tenure and promotion.

About California State University, Northridge, Psychology Department

The Psychology Department at California State University, Northridge has long been considered to be outstanding. In fact, a recent report from the National Science Foundation confirmed that more graduates of our department completed Ph.D. programs than graduates from any other non-Ph.D. granting university in the country. 

Our success is due in part to the Department's emphasis on research at both the undergraduate and graduate level. However, the relationships that form between our students and faculty also play an important role. California State University, Northridge is a teaching institution. Therefore, class sizes are generally small and individual attention is common. Our faculty work hard to meet the challenges of conducting and publishing research, while continuously honing their teaching skills.

We offer an undergraduate major leading to the B.A. in Psychology, an undergraduate minor, three graduate options leading to the M.A. in psychology and one M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis.  The Clinical Psychology graduate program prepares students wishing to proceed to doctoral programs with a clinical emphasis.  The General Experimental Psychology graduate program prepares students wishing to enter doctoral programs in psychology with a research emphasis.  The M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis graduate program is offered in collaboration with Tseng College and prepares students to work as scientist-practitioners at the MS-level and to sit for the board certification in behavior analysis (BCBA) or those desiring to proceed to doctoral programs with emphasis in applied behavior analysis.
