Visiting Faculty | Psychology
American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates invites applications for one-semester or one-year visiting faculty positions in psychology starting August 2022. As an American-accredited institution in the liberal arts tradition, we seek candidates with a passion for both teaching and research in any area of specialization.
Successful candidates will have a PhD in psychology or a closely related field, professional experience reflecting a commitment to teaching, and strong communication skills. As a university formed on the American model with English as the language of instruction, we give priority to candidates who have experience in American models of higher education.
Our new undergraduate program in psychology has exceeded its projected enrollments with three highly motivated student cohorts. The program hosts dedicated lab spaces, specialized software and hardware, and a research participation pool. Our psychology faculty regularly publish in peer-reviewed journals, have won internal and external competitive grants, and integrate undergraduates into their lab activities.
For the first stage of evaluation, we require only your CV and a letter detailing your interest in the position. In your letter, please indicate which semester you are interested in joining (Fall 2022, Spring 2023) or whether you are interested in joining for the full academic year. Please submit these two documents in PDF format through https://acg-apps1.aus.edu/cas/empapp/apply.php?p=INT-21-14. We will request additional information from candidates who make it to the next stage of evaluation.
You are welcome to contact the Search Committee Chair, Dr. Mark Aveyard ([email protected]), or the Psychology Program Coordinator, Dr. Angela Maitner ([email protected]), with any questions about the position, American University of Sharjah, or expatriate life in the UAE.
Applications submitted by February 15, 2022 will be given priority, but we will consider submissions after the deadline until the positions have been filled.
