Chapman University's Crean College of Health and Behavioral Sciences Department of Psychology seeks applications for TWO (2) non-tenure track full-time Instructional Assistant Professors of Psychology, beginning August 2020. The Psychology department embodies Chapman's mission of providing students with personalized experiences by fostering a community of teacher-scholars. The current average class size is 25 students per course, and instructors employ substantial in-class interaction, discussion, hands-on activities, experiential learning opportunities, and other innovative teaching styles. Faculty members often mentor individual student research projects, and Chapman currently has a system that allows faculty to apply research mentorship credits to earn teaching releases in future semesters or to earn additional pay. Faculty members with a strong interest in teaching Research Methods in Psychology, Advanced Research Methods, and courses in their expertise area, are particularly encouraged to apply. The departmental Research Methods course involves students designing and conducting experimental or correlational studies, analyzing the results, and presenting the findings through an APA-style manuscript and conference-style poster presentation. The department also offers an advanced research methods course for students interested in developing more in-depth research or data-analytic skills. Potential faculty may be interested in participating in the Psychology Department's Center for Excellence in Biopsychosocial Approaches to Health, which focuses on teaching and research in health psychology. Faculty may also be interested in connecting with the Institute for Interdisciplinary Brain and Behavioral Sciences.

Chapman University is one of California's oldest and most respected private universities, offering distinguished undergraduate and graduate degrees in the context of a liberal arts and sciences university. For more than 150 years, Chapman University has served as a symbol of educational access and excellence in the state of California. Founded as Hesperian College in 1861 in Woodland, California by members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we admitted men and women and people of color from our earliest days. Endowed by the Valencia orange magnate Charles Clarke Chapman, the institution changed its name to Chapman College in 1934, and by 1954 had moved to the former campus of Orange Union High School in Orange, California. The college again extended higher educational access when it began offering classes to military personnel at El Toro Marine Base.In 1965, Chapman took undergraduate education to the high seas when it began running World Campus Afloat, the program that would eventually become Semester at Sea, a tradition that continues at Chapman through our world-wide study abroad programs.Since our founding, Chapman has grown into a highly regarded university that at...tracts high-achieving undergraduate and graduate students from all over the United States, and more than 60 nations around the world.Our mission statement: To provide personalized education of distinction that leads to inquiring, ethical and productive lives as global citizens.
