Assistant Professor (2 tenure-track positions), Department of Psychology, Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU)

Deadline for applications: January 15, 2018, but search will continue until the position is filled.

The Department of Psychology in the College of Juvenile Justice & Psychology (COJJP) at Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU) seeks to fill two tenure-track positions at the Assistant Professor level. 

The Psychology Department offers graduate courses leading to a Master of Science degree in Juvenile Forensic Psychology and a Ph.D. degree in Clinical Adolescent Psychology. The department is seeking outstanding candidates who can offer a range of expertise in clinical psychology (e.g. clinical or clinical-community) which will expand instead of duplicate the expertise of our current faculty. The successful candidates will be responsible for teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, will have the opportunity to develop courses related to their own research agenda, and will maintain their active research agenda that would be consistent with the college’s mission. Additionally, this position requires fulfilling service commitments within the department, college, and university as well as the profession. Thus, the successful candidate would mirror the Department of Psychology in the College of Juvenile Justice & Psychology at Prairie View A&M University, as the entire institution is committed to excellence in education, training, prevention and service. To be considered, candidates must be licensed psychologists or eligible for such licensure in TX (http://www.tsbep.texas.gov). 

QUALIFICATIONS: To be considered for the position, applicants should have an earned doctorate from a regionally accredited university in clinical psychology and have credentials that warrant appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor. The successful applicant must demonstrate the ability to teach diverse groups of students at the undergraduate level. Although ABDs will be considered, the successful applicant must complete their doctoral degree within one year of appointment.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Application materials should be received by January 15, 2018, but the search will continue until the position is filled. To apply for these positions (F00161JP and F00162JP); please visit our website at https://jobs.pvamu.edu/. To be fully considered, all candidates will be required to submit a letter of interest, statement of teaching philosophy, curriculum vitae, three letters of professional recommendation with contact information, and a copy of official transcript via the online application portal. For assistance, please contact the Office of Human Resources at 936-261-1730 or https://jobs.pvamu.edu.
