Position Summary

The Psychology Department at Bowdoin College seeks applicants for a tenure-track position in cognitive psychology beginning July 1, 2021. A Ph.D. in cognitive psychology or a related field is required; post-doctoral research or teaching experience are preferred. An appointment will be made at the Assistant Professor level. Teaching responsibilities (4 courses per year) will include a topics-level course in cognitive psychology, a course in research methods, an upper-level laboratory course and a seminar course in the area of the candidate’s expertise. The successful candidate must possess a strong commitment to undergraduate education and demonstrate the potential to develop an active and productive research program that involves undergraduates.

Bowdoin is a community that warmly welcomes people of all backgrounds. We encourage applications from candidates committed to the instruction and support of a diverse student population and from those who will enrich and contribute to the College’s multifaceted diversity. In your application materials, please address how your teaching, scholarship, and/or mentoring would support our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Bowdoin requires a strong commitment to research and a promise of long-term successful scholarly engagement as well as a dedication to teaching excellence in a liberal arts environment. The College offers opportunities for professional development, a fully-funded, year-long junior sabbatical leave (after three years of teaching and successful reappointment), and regular, generously funded, post-tenure sabbaticals. We recognize that recruiting and retaining faculty may involve considerations of spouses and domestic partners. To that end, where possible, the College will attempt to accommodate and respond creatively to the needs of partners and spouses of members of the faculty.

Bowdoin College accepts only electronic submissions. Please submit: 1) a cover letter that details your scholarly research agenda, describes your teaching
experience, and states how your teaching, scholarship, and/or mentoring would potentially support our commitment to diversity and inclusion.; 2) a curriculum vitae; and 3) the names and contact information for three references who have agreed to provide letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin October 1, 2020. We expect to conduct this search remotely in consideration of the health and safety of candidates and the Bowdoin community.

Founded in 1794 on the Maine coast, Bowdoin is one of the oldest and most selective coeducational, residential liberal arts colleges in the country. Located in Brunswick, a 30-minute drive north of Portland, the College is in an area rich with natural beauty and year-round outdoor activities. Bowdoin’s reputation rests on the excellence of its faculty and students, intimate size, strong sense of community, and commitment to diversity (32.7% students of color, 6% international students and approximately 15% first generation college students). Bowdoin College complies with applicable provisions of federal and state laws that prohibit unlawful discrimination in employment, admission, or access to its educational or extracurricular programs, activities, or facilities based on race, color, ethnicity, ancestry and national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, age, marital status, place of birth, genetic predisposition, veteran status, or against qualified individuals with physical or mental disabilities on the basis of disability, or any other legally protected statuses.
