No Duties and Responsibilities

Loyola University Chicago (LUC), College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Psychology, invites applications for the Maude C. Clarke Assistant Professorship, beginning fall 2022. The Department currently has 33 fulltime faculty members, serves 1,200 undergraduate Psychology majors, and has three Ph.D. training tracks (Developmental, Clinical, and Social). It also contributes to the undergraduate majors in Neuroscience (600+ students). For more information about the Department of Psychology, please visit its website at www. luc.edu/psychology/.

The position is in humanistic psychology, and as such, we are seeking a developmental psychologist whose research, teaching, and service activities concern issues of race, ethnicity, and/or culture during the developmental periods of early childhood, middle childhood, and/or adolescence. The ideal candidate's work should advance research-based understandings of development and their applications in the real world. Applications are invited from all areas of developmental psychology including, but not limited to, children's linguistic, cognitive, or social-emotional development.

Located on Chicago's vibrantly multicultural North Side, LUC is committed to creating an inclusive, responsive community of faculty, students, and staff. As an urban-based department dedicated to mentoring a diverse student body, many of whom come from systemically excluded and under-served populations, we especially encourage applications from candidates from under-represented groups. Thus, we encourage applicants from all backgrounds, especially those traditionally underrepresented in psychology. Special consideration will be given to applicants whose teaching and mentoring experiences include an explicit commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. For additional information about Loyola's current anti-racism initiatives, see

https: // www. luc.edu/academicaffairs/aboutus/communications/ourroadtowardsracialjustice/).

The successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to maintain a vigorous, ongoing program of research and publication; to secure external grant funding to support that research; and to contribute in a substantial way to the department's teaching mission at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Qualifications

A PhD in Developmental Psychology, a strong record of productive research that includes securing external funding, clear evidence of excellence in teaching and student mentorship, and a history of mentoring and teaching students from diverse backgrounds. All candidates must be willing to support the mission of LUC and the goals of a Jesuit Catholic Education, including diversity and inclusion aims related to teaching and research. We also encourage applications from scholars committed to interdisciplinarity (i.e., working with colleagues across different subfields and disciplines) and the successful pursuit of external grants.
