The position involves teaching undergraduate courses (3/3 load with a course offered in our May Term once every three years), maintaining a research program, and engaging in departmental/college service. Applicants must be willing and able to teach courses related to their area of expertise, a subset of general psychology courses (e.g., intro, research methods, statistics), and contribute to Roanoke’s general education program. See current courses offered here. Pedagogical development is highly supported at both the department and college level. Preference will be given to candidates who can also involve undergraduate students in their research. Service activities are varied across campus, with opportunities for individual expression and engagement.
