The Department of Psychology at Arizona State University invites applications for two full-time Lecturers with an anticipated start date of August 2021.

The successful candidates will join an active, committed group of teaching faculty in delivering high quality undergraduate courses, and will be expected to participate in service to the university and profession as appropriate. Lecturer positions include the potential for promotion within the lecturer ranks, and opportunities for summer teaching.
The requirement for the positions are a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Psychology, Biology, or closely related discipline by the time of appointment.
