Psychology - JM (Donald Katz)

Brandeis University invites applications for lecturers in the Department of Psychology to teach one section of Abnormal Psychology (PSYC 32a) during the fall 2020 semester.  This course is designed for Psychology majors and minors, although the skills developed in the course are also useful for any student who seeks general introduction to psychopathology. Various theoretical models will be discussed. The findings of research, clinical, and experimental will be emphasized. 

Course objectives include the following:

  • To gain an understanding of those behaviors and syndromes that have traditionally fallen under the heading of “abnormal” or “psychopathological”
  • To gain an understanding of the very exciting research on the etiology, dynamics, description, and course of “maladaptive” behavior
  • To gain an understanding of how nature and nurture interact in the process of developing “maladaptive” behavior, and to understand the factors that affect developmental trajectories (including risk and protective factors)
  • To learn how to evaluate the clinical evidence regarding psychopathology

In addition, the candidate should be prepared to assist with student advising and the supervision of student research and internships.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Psychology, or a related discipline, and previous university-level teaching experience. 

Applicants should include with their application:  a curriculum vitae; a description of teaching interests, to include previous experience and philosophy; evidence of teaching effectiveness (i.e., course evaluations); and the names and contact information of two references.

We will begin reviewing applications on April 15, 2020. and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

This appointment is to a position that is in a collective bargaining unit represented by SEIU Local 509.
