Assistant Professor of Psychology, Specialty Open, with an Emphasis in Multiculturalism (Tenure Track)

Position Summary: The Psychology Department at Stonehill College invites applicants for an assistant professor, tenure-track appointment in Psychology to begin July 2022. This person will join a department of ten full-time faculty with a wide range of disciplinary expertise and a commitment to fostering diversity among faculty and students.  Our department prides itself on supporting each other and supporting a quality work-life balance for all. We seek applicants who are dedicated to excellence in teaching and mentoring undergraduate students.

Education and/or Experience: We seek applicants who have completed a Ph.D. in psychology with some specialization related to multiculturalism and diversity.  Applicants may hold a Ph.D. in various areas of psychology, so long as they have an established line of research inquiry related to diversity, preferably with an intersectional focus. Experience mentoring and supporting students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds (first-generation, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, minority religion, etc.) is also preferred.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities: Teaching responsibilities may include, but not limited to, a core course on Multicultural Psychology, a course in their area of specialty, and an advanced course on intersectionality. The opportunity to teach other core courses in the department, such as research methods, abnormal psychology, social psychology, or statistics, will be determined by the applicant’s background and interest. Additional responsibilities include developing and/or maintaining a research program relevant to traditionally under-served or under-researched populations.  The Stonehill College Psychology Department is proud of its state-of-the-art research space and the successful candidate will be supported in developing an active research program that includes mentoring students.

In fulfillment of its motto, Lux et Spes (“Light and Hope”), the College cultivates in its students the competence to think, act, and lead with courage towards creating a more just and compassionate world.

Special Instructions to Applicants: Interested candidates should submit online a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, a diversity and inclusion statement, and a brief description of the proposed research plan that includes how students will be engaged in the research.  Three recommendation letters are also required and each should be submitted online by the reference.  Submit required documentation via the URL link:
