The ideal candidate will provide leadership to promote collaboration across the department’s programs and foster the career development of its faculty. The Chair will oversee 28 tenure-track or tenured faculty members and another 8 full-time non-tenure-track faculty serving approximately 1,200 Psychology majors.

Located on the university’s Lakeshore Campus on Chicago’s vibrantly multicultural North Side, LUC is committed to creating an inclusive, responsive community of faculty, students, and staff. As an urban-based Department of Psychology dedicated to mentoring a diverse student body, many of whom come from under-represented and under-served populations, we especially encourage applications from candidates from under-represented groups. We also encourage applications from scholars committed to interdisciplinarity (i.e., working with colleagues across different subfields and disciplines) and the successful pursuit of external grants.
