Job Summary/Basic Function:

The Wheaton College (MA) Department of Psychology invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Developmental Psychology, beginning July 1, 2022.

Wheaton College provides students a transformative educational experience in a supportive liberal arts curriculum that cultivates curiosity, passion, and career aspirations. We seek a colleague who is committed to teaching and mentoring undergraduates, and who shares the department’s commitment to fostering inclusion and diversity in teaching, service, and research. The successful candidate will maintain a research program that attends to issues of racism and racial justice in the context of child or adolescent development. The 3/2 teaching responsibilities include core courses in developmental psychology, a specialized seminar related to the candidate’s work, and general courses such as Introduction to Psychology, and Statistics for the Social Sciences.

Wheaton is a leading private, coeducational, liberal arts college of 1800 students located in Norton, MA and within easy commuting distance of Boston and Providence. 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 starting with the fall of 2021. As such, there is an expectation that this position will be in-person on campus in Norton, MA.

For full consideration, please upload a letter of application, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, evidence of teaching effectiveness, a copy of up to three selected publications, and contact information for three references. Wheaton strives to be a community supportive of diverse perspectives and identities through inclusive and equitable institutional practices. Candidates should describe in their letter of application how they will support the College’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, whether through their teaching, scholarship, or service.

Please address any questions about the position or the selection process to Dr. Matthew Gingo at

Applications will be considered on an ongoing basis beginning October 5, 2021.

The Psychology Department includes 10 tenure-track professors that study the breadth of the field and contribute to multiple interdisciplinary majors on campus. Tenure-track faculty at Wheaton are entitled to a fully paid pre-tenure sabbatical, and research funds to support scholarship will be made available.
