Department of Psychology Tenure-Track Faculty or Pre-Tenure Track Faculty Psychology (Undergraduate Program) Gallaudet University Academic Year 2020-2021 Gallaudet University serves deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing students from a diverse background and seeks to develop a workforce that reflects the diversity of its student body. Gallaudet is an equal employment opportunity/affirmative action employer and actively encourages deaf, hard of hearing, members of traditionally underrepresented groups, people with disabilities, women, and veterans to apply to open positions. General Information: The Department of Psychology has several degree programs: an undergraduate major (B.A.) in Psychology; a Specialist-level program in School Psychology; and a doctoral (Ph.D.) program in Clinical Psychology. The department seeks to fill one position entails teaching primarily at the undergraduate level, with some graduate level courses possible depending upon qualifications and interests of the candidate and needs of the department. To be considered for tenure at Gallaudet University, a candidate must possess a terminal degree; applicants who lack a terminal degree may apply for a pre-tenure position, in which faculty members spend up to three years in a pre-tenure position prior to being considered for a tenure-track position. Qualifications: 1. Candidates must have a doctoral degree or have made significant progress toward completion of a doctoral degree in Psychology. Candidates with programs of graduate study that may not be entitled "Psychology" but are predominantly psychological in content will also be considered. 2. Candidates for the undergraduate position should demonstrate skills in undergraduate instruction in psychology. 3. Candidates should demonstrate an ability to teach effectively with diverse populations, including deaf and hard of hearing students. 4. Candidates must be aware of cultural and educational implications of working with deaf students, and either have appropriate communication skills in sign language, or demonstrate willingness to commit significant time and effort over several years to develop the level of communication skill that is required for tenure at this university. Responsibilities: Faculty members hired for these positions will teach three courses each semester. Undergraduate teaching areas/courses may include introductory psychology courses, applied psychology courses such as case management, drugs/addictions, forensic psychology, health psychology, and personality. Additional teaching areas at both the undergraduate and graduate level will depend upon the interests and skills of the faculty member and the needs of the department. Expectations for all faculty also include scholarly productivity. Tenure-track faculty are expected to engage in departmental, university, and professional service as well. Application Procedures: Review of applicants begins immediately and will continue until the positions are filled. Please send a letter of application clearly outlining your interests and fit with the job description and requirements.
