Applications demonstrating experience and capacity to mentor, conduct research, and teach courses that address intersections with race, ethnicity, and culture are especially welcome.

We welcome innovative teachers who skillfully integrate research with teaching. Our introductory psychology course includes research lab studies to teach students about observational, correlational, and experimental designs. We especially seek applicants who have demonstrated experience effectively working with racially or ethnically underrepresented students.
 The Psychology Department at Hope College has 12 tenured/tenure-track faculty and graduates about 80 majors per year. The Psychology Department also contributes to Hope College’s interdisciplinary major and minor in neuroscience.
