Description: Claremont McKenna College invites applicants for a tenure-track position in Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology. Applicants should have earned a Ph.D. in I-O Psychology or closely related field. We are especially interested in candidates with primary research and teaching interests in topics such as individual differences in organizations, talent management (including employee selection, appraisal, motivation, and training/development), decision-making, teams and teamwork, and working in diverse contexts. CMC faculty are expected to maintain an active program of research and to engage undergraduate students in the research process. Excellence in teaching undergraduates is critical. Professors at CMC teach four courses a year (2 courses per semester). For this position, courses will likely include Organizational Psychology, a specialty area seminar, a lower division course (e.g., Personality Psychology), and a core course in psychology (e.g., Introduction to Psychology). These classes are taught in a liberal arts setting characterized by small classes and high levels of student interaction. Given our commitment to cultivating a challenging and inclusive educational environment, we seek candidates who can demonstrate a commitment to teaching and mentoring students within a college community that is broadly diverse with regards to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic background. There are also opportunities for working with graduate students in the psychology doctoral program at Claremont Graduate University.
