Assistant Professor of Health Psychology

The Department of Psychology at Loyola Marymount University invites applications for a tenure-track position starting at the level of Assistant Professor to begin August 15, 2022. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in psychology with an emphasis in research related to Health Psychology (i.e., the study of psychological, biological, social, and cultural processes and influences in health, illness, and health care). The Department aims to hire an individual with the potential to develop an ongoing program of research into which our undergraduate students can be integrated. Openness toward multi-disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and/or collaborative research with colleagues in Psychology and other departments is also valued. The successful candidate will regularly teach both lower-division courses (including statistics, research methods, and/or biological bases of behavior) and upper-division electives in their areas of expertise, including health psychology and senior seminars in their research specialty. The LMU community, including the Department of Psychology, demonstrates a commitment to Catholic/Jesuit intellectual traditions and is composed of faculty, staff, and students from a wide range of culturally and religiously diverse backgrounds. Applicants should be committed to working in and with this diverse population, to the LMU mission, and to undergraduate teaching and research in the liberal arts tradition. Other responsibilities include advising students on their academic and professional aspirations and participating in department, college, and university service responsibilities. 

The application requires: 1) a cover letter addressing fit with position and resonance with LMU’s mission; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) a research statement; 4) a statement of teaching philosophy that demonstrates your approach to teaching in the liberal arts tradition, and, if available, teaching evaluations and/or sample syllabi; 5) a statement that addresses contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion in teaching and mentoring; 6) up to three representative publications; and 7) three letters of recommendation.  Application materials should be submitted by October 15, 2021 by 5pm PST.  All application materials except the letters of recommendation should be uploaded to Tenure Line Psychology (myworkdayjobs.com). The three letters of recommendation should be emailed by the recommender directly to the following email address: PSYCFacultySearch@lmu.edu.  The subject line should read: “[Candidate Name] Recommendation for Health Psychology.” Applications missing any of the materials or arriving after October 15, 2021 will not be considered. Only electronic applications will be considered.  A Ph.D. in Psychology is required. Please direct questions to Brett Marroquín, Search Committee Chair, at PSYCFacultySearch@lmu.edu.
