The SPSP Board of Directors, the editorial leadership team for Personality and Social Psychology Review seeks applications for an Editorial Fellowship position for psychologists from historically excluded groups.
In service of SPSP’s core values of innovation, rigor, diversity, and inclusiveness, this pilot fellowship program seeks to create a supportive pathway to editorial leadership for psychologists from communities that have been historically excluded from these roles. It is also useful to bring an interdisciplinary scholarly perspective (either within different subfields of psychology or across disciplines), an investment in the future of the fields of personality and/or social psychology (broadly defined), and an interest in collaborating with the current editorial team on the development of manuscripts advancing theory.
The goal of the fellowship is to identify and support someone who:
- is interested in editorial leadership
- wouldn’t otherwise come into it at this moment in their career, and
- may not have easy access to professional support systems that facilitate and support editorial experience and mentorship from centrally positioned scholars in the field.
- The position includes an honorarium stipend of USD $2,500.
- The Fellow will join an innovative, collaborative, and supportive editorial team as an Associate Editor for 12 months, beginning on Jan. 1, 2023.
- They seek scholars from Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America, as well as Indigenous scholars in any country.
- The fellowship is open to candidates from historically excluded groups who have completed their PhD. Candidates may hold an academic or non-academic position.
- The Fellow will work closely with other members of the team to develop their editorial leadership skills.
