FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

Brooklyn College of the City University of New York (CUNY) invites applications for a full-time, entry level tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the Department of Psychology (area open), with a research focus on populations traditionally underserved or understudied in Psychology and Neuroscience, which aligns with CUNY's priorities in Black, Race, Ethnic, Disability, and LGBTQ Studies, and a starting date in August 2023.

The Psychology Department is part of the School of Natural and Behavioral Sciences and, in addition to undergraduate programs, offers doctoral training through the Psychology Doctoral Program at the CUNY Graduate Center, and masters level programs in Experimental Psychology, Mental Health Counseling, and Industrial/Organizational Psychology. We seek a collaborative faculty member pursuing a research program that focuses on Diversity, Black, Latinx, BIPOC Psychology. The specific area of research is open and could include aspects of development (e.g., family, lifespan), health, health disparities, social behavior, culture, personality, industrial/organizational psychology, cognition, or neuroscience. Successful candidates will have strong scholarship that deconstructs scientific racism and reconstructs anti-racist psychological perspectives within their specific field(s) of interest. Faculty are expected to develop their own program of research (including seeking extramural funding), actively participate in the department’s teaching and service responsibilities at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and engage in student mentorship beyond the classroom.

Brooklyn College serves students from as many as 150 countries who speak over 100 languages and dialects and thus constitutes a vibrant microcosm of the rich diversity and energy that characterizes the borough of Brooklyn and the greater New York City area itself. Its mission features “a special commitment to educate immigrant and first-generation college students from the diverse communities that make up our city and state.” The college ethos is strongly invested in the educational and career success of our diverse students. We are committed to fostering a spirit of camaraderie and shared ideals. By accessing a first-class and affordable college education in an inclusive and nurturing intellectual milieu, our students acquire the skills, confidence, and global mindedness that allow them to thrive in a rapidly changing, unpredictable marketplace of ideas that increasingly transcends borders and spans cultures and vernaculars.

To this end, the college seeks faculty who are eager to engage with the diversity of our student body and have a demonstrated commitment to inclusion and heterogeneity through teaching, research and/or service. We seek to recruit and retain faculty who reflect the mosaic of our student population. Successful candidates will bring their unique creativity, sensitivity, insights and perspectives to a community that welcomes innovation and promotes excellence in scholarship and teaching. Together we will model the finest that a public urban liberal arts, sciences, and professional studies college can be for the present and future.

Responsibilities include:

  • Teaching undergraduate, masters, and/or doctoral courses.

  • Developing and maintaining a funded research agenda.

  • Advising, mentoring, and training undergraduate and graduate students.

  • Participating in college, department, and/or university committees, and various other service commitments (e.g., curriculum development, student outreach).

Candidates will be required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 upon commencing employment. Exemption (medical or religious) requests to this requirement will be considered in accordance with applicable law. Being fully vaccinated is defined for this purpose as being at least two weeks past their final dose of an authorized COVID-19 vaccine regimen. Final candidates must be fully vaccinated as of their first day of employment.
