Subject: [COGDEVSOC] Tenure Track Positions at Skidmore College
To: cogdevsoc@lists.cogdevsoc.org

Skidmore College is currently searching to fill two tenure track positions
in the Psychology Department: one in Developmental Psychology and one in
Cognition/Perception. I have attached both job ads, and have copied the
Developmental ad below (since it is likely to be the more relevant of the
two). The deadline for both positions is September 30th, 2015.

Best wishes,
Jess Sullivan
Skidmore College

  The Department of Psychology at Skidmore College invites applications for
a tenure-track position at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor in
the area of Developmental Psychology beginning Fall 2016. The faculty
member in this position will teach core courses (e.g., research methods,
introductory course) and courses in their area of expertise (e.g.,
Adolescent and/or Adult Development), and will supervise undergraduate
research. Within the context of a five-course teaching load, the position
also occasionally includes teaching a first-year interdisciplinary seminar
(topic open).

Skidmore seeks to attract an academically and culturally diverse faculty,
especially those who can contribute to the growing diversity and excellence
of the community through their teaching, scholarship, and service.
Enthusiasm for advising, teaching, and mentoring a diverse population of
students is essential. We seek candidates who are firmly committed to
undergraduate education, including the involvement of undergraduates in
research programs that are theoretically and methodologically sophisticated
and of nationally recognized quality. Excellent teaching and research
facilities support many opportunities for faculty/student collaborative
work in the classroom, lab, and field.

Skidmore is a liberal arts institution of approximately 2,400 students,
with 21% students of color, and 248 full- time faculty members, located in
upstate New York. Skidmore offers support for faculty development in many
ways, including pre-tenure sabbaticals, laboratory start-up funds, and
internal grants.

Preference will be given to candidates with teaching experience who have a
Ph.D. in psychology or, if ABD, will complete the Ph.D. by Fall 2016, and
who have potential to develop a significant research program in psychology.
Candidates should submit all materials online by September 30, 2015,
including cover letter, vita, selected reprints, research statement,
teaching evaluations, teaching statement, transcripts for highest degree
completed and email addresses for three letters of recommendation.
Applicants are requested to include in their cover letter how they will
enhance the diversity of offerings and educational experiences in the
department and college with regards to their teaching, research, and/or

Review of applications begins immediately and will continue until the
position is filled.
