Student dissecting brain

Visiting or Adjunct Professor of Psychology 

The Department of Psychology at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina is accepting letters of interest for an adjunct position for Fall 2018 semester to teach Introduction to Psychological Science. There is a lab associated with the course that uses a shared curriculum across sections. The lab requires data collection using Biopac, analysis and graphing using Excel, and APA style write-up on two projects. As is typical of small liberal arts colleges, our class size for labs has a max of 24 students. However, lecture sections will have a max of 40 students, as there will be up to 16 students that can enroll without the lab portion of the course (only take the lecture portion). Given the small nature of our classes, our “lectures” tend to be interactive and include discussion. This is an ideal position for an ABD candidate interested in obtaining more extensive teaching experience to prepare for a career in academia, especially at a small liberal arts college.

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS:

A master’s degree and one year of recent college-level teaching. Preference will be given to those with a doctoral degree and more extensive teaching backgrounds. 

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Application should be e-mailed to Dr. Kara Bopp (boppkl@wofford.edu) and should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for 2-3 references. Selected finalist candidates will be invited for a campus interview and teaching demonstration.
