Forensic / Legal Psychology Lecturer Ad

The New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University invites applications for a full-time benefits-eligible Lecturer in Forensic / Legal Psychology to support new undergraduate and graduate programs that focus on psychology and law.

The majority of the teaching will serve our online undergraduate and MS programs in Forensic Psychology; however, some face-to-face instruction for our on-campus students will also be required. The position further requires responsibility for course redevelopment and maintenance, assisting with program development, and working with ancillary support services connected to ASU Online.

Requirements: Applicants must possess a doctorate in psychology or a related field by time of appointment, and must have some experience—either through research or instruction—in the field of legal psychology / forensic psychology / psychology and law.

Desired qualifications: Ability to teach a broad variety of courses within the forensic/legal psychology area; strong research or instructional background in legal/forensic psychology; strong quantitative and methodological skills and knowledge; experience teaching at the postsecondary level in the field of psychology, particularly in the online environment; experience with online learning platforms such as Blackboard; experience with creating online courses; willingness to remain in the position for subsequent years; demonstrated excellence in teaching (either online or in‐person); excellent communication skills; and experience mentoring or advising undergraduate and graduate students.

Salary is commensurate with experience and is based on a 9‐month contract.

Deadline: 24 March, 2017; if not filled, every two weeks thereafter until search is closed.

Application process: Send your Curriculum Vitae along with a letter of application that includes a teaching statement that speaks to how you fit with our required/desired qualifications, and contact information for three references to Ms. Jamie Howell at: sbssearches@asu.edu.
