Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, USA
Deadline for applications: October 17, 2017
The Psychology Department and the Program in Africana Studies at LEHIGH UNIVERSITY invite applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level, beginning Fall 2018, for a scholar whose research contributes to our understanding of social justice, broadly defined. We seek candidates in cognitive, developmental, or social psychology with strength in the empirical examination of social justice issues. Any research area that explores racial equity and racial disparities is under consideration. The concern is with psychological theories with connection to important social policy and identity issues that impact stereotyped groups and group members (such as: examining the causal factors that give rise to disparities, the nature of prejudice and control of prejudice, the impact of racism-related experience on well being, protective and risk factors in the context of the African American experience, etc).
