The Department of Psychology at Eastern Michigan University announces an opening for a Full-Time Lecturer position to begin Fall 2019. Candidates must have their PhD in psychology at the start of hire (specialization open). Candidates must demonstrate evidence of strong teaching skills (particularly in general psychology), and must show evidence of the ability to coordinate graduate student instructors who teach lab sections that accompany the general psychology offering. The successful applicant will receive a yearly contract (renewable on a year-by-year basis for 2 years, and then a three-year basis thereafter). For the lab coordination, the faculty member will meet with 16-19 graduate students each week to review the lab for the week, offer teaching suggestions, and trouble shoot classroom issues. The coordinator also teaches a lab section to understand the concepts and difficulties in teaching labs over the semester. The coordinator also handles student complaints and classroom management issues. The Psychology Department has MS programs in General Clinical, Clinical-Behavioral, and Experimental psychology, an APA-accredited Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program, and approximately 900 undergraduate majors. The EMU campus is located in Ypsilanti, five miles from downtown Ann Arbor and 35 miles west of Detroit, MI.
