We invite applications for a full-time faculty position in developmental psychology, beginning Fall 2018. The successful candidate will be a scholar actively engaged in empirical research, conversant in statistical analysis, research methodology and design, and able to supervise undergraduate research projects. Further, the successful candidate will be interested in teaching multi-disciplinary courses within and beyond the traditional social sciences, and will have an active interest in cross-cultural psychology, ethnicity and race, and/or gender identity development. The candidate should have a PhD in hand by the time the position begins.

Faculty members at Bennington are teacher-practitioners whose professional work is in ongoing dialogue with their teaching and advising. Faculty teach five courses per year and fully engaged student advising is an expectation. Additionally, the successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to developing curriculum that invites the participation of students with a broad range of interests.

Bennington College is a small residential liberal arts college in southern Vermont, long distinguished for its progressive approach to higher education. The College was founded in 1932 on the principle of active engagement in learning, which is manifest in individualized plans of study developed by students together with faculty. We aim to educate students towards self-fulfillment and constructive social purposes, and we believe that equity, diversity, and inclusivity—in community and in curriculum—are vital to achieving those aims.

Candidates should apply online to by submitting: a) letter of application that describes teaching experience, professional work and includes a reflection on the candidate’s potential to contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment through teaching, research, and/or service; b) curriculum vitae; c) teaching statement which includes a description of three (3) proposed courses for Bennington College; and d) the names and contact information for three references.

In recognition of the employment challenges sometimes faced by academic couples in small communities, the College will also consider applications to share equally a single full-time faculty position. Applicants must each submit an individual application and indicate in their cover letters that that they are applying jointly.

Review of applications will begin September 15 and will continue until the position is filled.

  • Bennington College is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity and inclusivity.
