The University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) Department of Psychology anticipates hiring a Lecturer for our Master of Professional Studies (MPS) program in Industrial/Organizational Psychology hosted at the Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville, MD. This full-time, 9-month non-tenure-track appointment will begin in August, 2017. Preference will be given to candidates who hold a doctoral degree in I/O Psychology or a closely related field, who have demonstrated a successful record of professional work experience and teaching in I/O Psychology, and possess a commitment to diversity and inclusion in their professional activities. Responsibilities include course instruction, academic advising, assistance with program administration, and service on departmental or university committees. The I/O program was founded in 2008 as a vehicle for graduate training to enhance student careers in I/O and Human Capital Management. The program faculty consists of applied practitioners and academics who support student growth through rigorous classroom instruction and experiential learning with guidance from an Advisory Board of I/O Psychologists and HR professionals in leadership positions. Although the position is projected to be full-time, consideration will also be given to suitable candidates interested in a lower effort commitment (e.g., prorated to 60% or 75% effort). The successful applicant will join a vibrant department with strengths in the use of innovative teaching methods and the infusion of human diversity into the Psychology curriculum. UMBC takes considerable pride in the diversity and excellence of its student body. We seek to attract an equally diverse applicant pool for this position, and have a strong commitment to increasing faculty diversity.
Applications should include a cover letter; curriculum vita; a description of teaching interests and teaching philosophy, a description of commitment to diversity and inclusion in teaching and professional activities, and three letters of recommendation (sent directly by recommenders).
