To Apply Visit:

The Wheaton College Department of Psychology seeks a colleague who shares our commitment to liberal arts education in the context of a gender-balanced, culturally diverse curriculum and community. We invite applications for a two-year visiting assistant professor position, beginning in the fall of 2021. Wheaton has been operating under a remote hybrid teaching model in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It is our hope to return to an in-person teaching model for the fall of 2021. While this position may be temporarily remote, there is an expectation that the teaching will be on campus when the college determines it is safe to return to in-person operations. Wheaton is a private, coeducational, liberal arts college of 1800 students located in Norton, MA and within easy commuting distance of Boston and Providence. The Department and the College are committed to attracting promising candidates from groups presently under-represented in our community, with the goal of maintaining and enriching an intellectually diverse learning environment. For more information about the college, visit our website at

All candidates should be prepared to teach three courses per semester including Brain, Mind, and Behavior (Introductory Neuroscience), Drugs and Behavior (Introductory Psychopharmacology), Lab in Behavioral Neuroscience (300-level Physiological Psychology course), and one or more of the following: Learning and Memory, Comparative Animal Behavior, and/or an upper division course in their area of specialization. As a visiting professor you will have use of a behavioral neuroscience faculty research laboratory and animal facilities that house small rodents and zebrafish.

Minimum Qualifications: PhD in Psychology.

Applications will be considered on an on-going basis, beginning March 15th. For full consideration, the following are to be submitted via Wheaton's online application system: letter of application, curriculum vitae, one copy of selected publications, evidence of teaching effectiveness, teaching and research philosophies, and contact information for three references. Please note that references will not be contacted upon application; confidential letters of reference will be collected at a later stage of the hiring process and applicants will be alerted ahead of time.
