    The Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, in the College of Arts & Sciences, at Baylor University invites applications for 
    two full-time lecturer faculty positions beginning in August 2023, with a possibility of appointment as early as January 2023. We are seeking applicants with strong interest and experience in teaching psychology or neuroscience courses at the undergraduate level. These appointments are full-time teaching-focused positions, whose primary responsibilities are in instruction, mentoring, and service.

In addition, numerous teaching focused faculty have risen to prominent leadership positions such as undergraduate program director, faculty senators, and service on steering committees. We have demonstrated a sustained commitment to fostering an academic environment that fosters and supports diversity, equity, and inclusion (https://www.baylor.edu/psychologyneuroscience/index.php?id=972654), with teaching-focused faculty playing critical roles in these efforts. We are especially interested in candidates who, through their teaching and/or service, will promote diversity, equity, and inclusion at Baylor; members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. Baylor offers outstanding benefits including generous retirement contributions, tuition remission, and affordable high-quality medical plans.
