The DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY at EAST TENNESSEE STATE UNIVERSITY invites applications for a tenure-track ASSISTANT PROFESSOR position in CLINICAL CHILD psychology, beginning 8/15/19. ALL areas of clinical/counseling child psychology will be considered. Interest or experience in rural, primary care settings is a plus. Applicants must have completed an APA-accredited doctoral program in clinical or counseling psychology and an APA accredited psychology internship by 12/31/19, or be currently licensed as a doctoral-level psychologist. Eventual licensure is expected, as supervision of our clinical psychology students rotates among clinical faculty as part of their teaching load. Candidates from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Exceptional collaborative research opportunities across a variety of psychological fields are provided by the James H. Quillen College of Medicine, which operates under the auspices of ETSU, and is consistently ranked nationally among rural colleges of medicine.

The Department of Psychology at ETSU houses an APA-accredited clinical PhD concentration with a special focus on rural mental health and primary care psychology and has been identified as an exemplary program in training students to practice in integrated settings. The department also houses an in-house training clinic and a complementary Ph.D. concentration in experimental psychology that focuses on translational research.
