Job Description


Neumann University invites applications for an Assistant Professor of Psychology position to begin in August 2021.

We are hoping to hire a colleague who can contribute in substantive ways to our psychology program. The successful candidate will be able to teach a range of courses across the student experience, including the introductory course, cognitive psychology, learning, and neuropsychology/psychobiology. An established program of research that lent itself well to undergraduate research experiences would be considered a plus.

The standard teaching load at Neumann University is twelve credits per academic semester. Neumann expects full-time faculty to engage in scholarship and research on an ongoing basis, to perform committee service and academic advising, and to engage in community service, broadly defined. Candidates should be aware that Neumann University does not have a system of tenure, but instead offers faculty a policy-governed system of promotion and increasingly extended contracts with faculty seniority.


Preferred and Required Qualifications

To qualify for rank as an assistant professor, the successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. or Psy.D. in experimental psychology, cognitive psychology, learning, or neuropsychology/psychobiology. Candidates enrolled in a doctoral degree program with a confirmed graduation/defense date prior to August 15, 2021, will be considered.

Application Details

For full consideration, applications must include the following materials: (1) a letter of interest that addresses the candidate’s experience teaching undergraduate courses as well as the candidate’s appreciation for, and congruence with, the Catholic Franciscan mission of the University; (2) a curriculum vitae; (3) copies of graduate and undergraduate transcripts (official copies will be required at the time of hire); and, if applicable, (4) teaching evaluations, a sample syllabus, and/or other evidence of demonstrated excellence in undergraduate instruction. Letters of recommendation are not required at the initial stages of the review process, but will be solicited of all finalist candidates.

Candidates must also possess an appreciation for and congruence with the Franciscan mission of the University. Review of applications will begin on Monday, November 30, 2020, and continue until the position is filled. Applications should be e-mailed to:
