Job Description

DESCRIPTION:

The Psychology Department at Montclair State University invites applications for a 1-year (renewable for a second), full-time, 12-month position as a Post-Doctoral Teaching and Learning Fellow in Developmental Psychology. The Post-Doctoral Teaching and Learning Fellowship (PDTLF) is a new and innovative program at Montclair focused on teaching and development for those people interested in teaching and supporting student success in a majority-minority, HSI, R2, comprehensive institution. We are looking for a PDTL Fellow to augment our course offerings in lifespan developmental psychology, with a focus on aging. Expertise in quantitative methods is desired, as the Fellow may also teach courses in our core quantitative curriculum.

The Fellow has an opportunity to engage in work that will directly impact students in the tradition of Montclair’s notable commitment to be a leader in pedagogical innovation while expanding their teaching skillset. The Fellow will teach 4 3-credit classes in each of Fall and Spring semesters and 2 additional courses in summer and/or winter sessions. The total teaching load will be 30 credits per calendar year. The Fellow may also have opportunities to lead in the development of new courses in our psychology curriculum, with a commensurate reduction in teaching load.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree in psychology, human development, or a related field. ABD candidates are expected to complete their PhD before beginning the position in Fall 2024.

Company

Montclair State University

Montclair State University defines what it means to be a university with a public purpose — one that not only creates transformational opportunities for students, but also partners with communities to make a difference in the lives of others. 

Montclair invites students to imagine the world they want to live in and empowers them to develop the skills and knowledge to create it. As a solutions engine, we ask: How can we harness the power of 21,000 students and 1,800 professors to be a force for good in the world?

This distinctive approach continues to attract students, propelling Montclair to become New Jersey’s second largest institution of higher learning, and one of its most diverse. Under President Jonathan Koppell, the University enrolled the largest entering class in the University’s history two years in a row.

Founded in 1908, Montclair has grown big enough to offer more than 300 programs across 13 colleges and schools at all degree levels – and yet, with a student-to-faculty ratio of 17 to 1, is still small enough for students to receive personalized attention from professors and staff who truly care. Students have numerous opportunities to conduct research with professors who are respected leaders in their fields.

More than 50% of Montclair’s students identify as underrepresented minorities. It is New Jersey’s largest Hispanic-Serving Institution, serving more Latinx students than any other university in the state.

Montclair’s highly diverse students thrive in the University’s supportive, welcoming environment. Their graduation rates outperform state and national benchmarks and predictions with U.S. News & World Report ranking Montclair as seventh among national universities in graduation rate performance in 2022. It is consistently recognized as one of the most inclusive and best value universities and ranked No. 21 in the country in social mobility.

Many of Montclair’s students are working and raising families, and the University offers flexible programs that give them the opportunity to learn in ways that work best for them, on campus or online, in real time or asynchronously.

Faculty include winners of a MacArthur fellowship, Fulbright grants and Emmy awards, and NSF, NEH and NIH grants, among many other distinctions. These highly respected researchers, scholars and creators are dedicated to student success, and they are always innovating to meet the needs of learners and of the state. Montclair has launched dozens of new degree and certificate programs, and offers more combined bachelor’s and master’s degree programs than any other university in New Jersey – empowering students to enter the workforce faster, with stronger skills and for less cost. 

Montclair’s mission is to elevate its students and partners, and in so doing, help make the world a better place. 

At Montclair State, our employees are among our most valuable assets.

When you work at Montclair State, you join a talented, diverse and inclusive community of employees who work together to support the educational mission of the University.

You are part of a leading institution of higher education in New Jersey. Our 11 colleges and schools serve 21,000 students on a beautiful 252-acrea, vibrant suburban campus just 12 miles from New York City.
