What It Is

To increase faculty diversity, the Psychology Department participates in the Future Faculty Program, making faculty job offers to our participants each year.

The program aims to develop meaningful relationships with doctoral candidates and post-doctoral scholars that are traditionally underrepresented in their fields in the hopes of having them join our team.

Application Process

Potential applicants must be a graduate student or post-doctoral scholar within one year of potentially joining the team.

Please visit this website for more information about the application process and program.
