In the US, if I were appointed to a tenure-track position, after how many years would it be socially acceptable for me to leave? (I'd like to go to this place for 1 or 2 years but not more - would that be unacceptable?). The post would be in Psychology, and I'd be applying from the UK so I'd want to go home after a year or two.

There are various post-doctoral positions available in the United Staes. Most of them are specific appointments for a year or 2 years term. If you choose to embark on a tenure-track position, it normally takes about 7 years to get tenure. You have the right to leave at any time (and the employer has the right to let you go as well) before tenure. Tenure is for your protection, you can still leave after tenure, but it's much harder for the institution to fire you after you are tenured. A university program might not want to hire you if they know for sure that you plan to leave after a couple of years, but it's not uncommon for new employees to leave if they feel that the place is not a good fit.
