Austin College’s Department of Psychology invites applications for two tenure-track assistant professor positions in Clinical or Counseling Psychology, beginning August 2020. One position is open specialization and the other will focus on Behavioral/Community Mental Health.
We are particularly interested in candidates who teach and practice evidence-based therapy techniques. The successful candidates will collaborate to develop a sustainable clinical curriculum/track within the psychology major. Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. conferred by August 2020.
A strong commitment to teaching excellence is essential. The successful candidates can expect to teach Psychopathology, Psychotherapy and Assessment, and upper-level courses in their areas of specialization. The ability to teach a subset of service courses for the department is highly desirable (e.g., General Psychology, Statistics for Psychologists, and/or Quantitative Research Methods). Our department supports a range of collaborative research and internship opportunities for undergraduates. We welcome applicants who are excited about conducting research with undergraduate students and placing students into internships in the surrounding community. Candidates for the Behavioral/Community Mental Health position will be expected to foster community outreach with students and to interface with the college’s Public Health program.
Austin College supports interdisciplinary courses and programs. We appreciate candidates who can work with and/or contribute to curricula in areas such as East Asian Studies, Gender Studies, Nonprofit Organizations and Public Service, and Southwestern and Mexican Studies.
