Bayard Rustin Faculty Fellow in Psychology
Whittier College is a nationally recognized, selective, independent liberal arts college with a diverse student body of approximately 1,200 undergraduates and the College is distinguished by its small size and innovative interdisciplinary programs. The campus is located on a 95-acre hillside campus 18 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. We have a long history of commitment to equity, reflecting our Quaker origins, and our student body mirrors the diversity of the region, making Whittier one of the most diverse liberal arts colleges in the country. Our faculty, committed teacher-scholars, weave issues of diversity into their work with students.
The Bayard Rustin Fellowship positions are designed to attract faculty from historically underrepresented groups within higher education to experience the unique liberal arts college setting. Applicants for the Fellowship can be either new Ph.D.s or in the writing stage of the dissertation before beginning the position. Whittier College seeks a Rustin Fellow in social justice counseling (preferred), applied developmental, cross-cultural, &/or community psychology, with a scholarly focus on minoritized and marginalized communities.
Rustin Fellowships are designed to allow scholarly time for writing, while gaining teaching experience in a liberal arts setting. Fellows will teach three courses during the year (in a Fall//Spring calendar), at a salary of $67,000 plus a small fund for research & development. The position is for one year and the Fellowship is renewable for a second year, pending favorable review. Rustin Fellow positions are eligible for tenure-track consideration, pending budgetary and administrative approval. Their expected course load would include teaching the Senior Capstone, Statistics, or Research Methods, as well as two electives focusing on counseling, social justice, cross-cultural, applied developmental, and/or community psychology.
