The Department of Psychological Science and Counseling at Austin Peay State University (APSU) seeks to fill one tenure-track faculty position in the area of Counseling Psychology with a start date of August 1, 2021.

 

This position will serve our new PsyD program in Counseling Psychology which launched Fall 2020. The program offers a generalist track as well as a concentration in Serving Military Personnel, Veterans, and their Families. The person hired for this position will have a unique opportunity to help build and shape an innovative, forward-looking doctoral training program in health service psychology. Strong candidates will possess a deep commitment to the foundational values that characterize the field of counseling psychology: a holistic, contextual, strengths-based approach to intervention, emphasis on integration of science and practice, and a steadfast dedication to diversity and social justice.

 

A doctorate (PsyD or PhD) in Counseling Psychology (preferred) or Clinical Psychology from an APA-accredited program is required. Preferred candidates will be licensed as a psychologist HSP or be license-eligible in TN within 1 year of hire. The intention is for one of the persons hired to function as director of clinical training, with appropriate reassign time. Clinical, teaching, and research areas are open and experience working with military populations is desirable. All APSU faculty are expected to be engaged in university and community service, and scholarly activities. The university has plentiful funding opportunities to help support research, teaching, and professional development.

 

The Department of Psychological Science and Counseling is a diverse, dynamic, and collegial environment that in addition to the PsyD program, is home to a large undergraduate program in psychological science, a Master of Science program in Industrial and Organizational Psychology (MSIO), a Master of Science program in Counseling, and a graduate certificate program in Academic Advising. For more information about the department, visit: http://www.apsu.edu/psychology/index.php . The department is housed within the College of Behavioral and Health Sciences which affords rich opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations. Some examples of recent and ongoing college collaborations include a grant-funded research and intervention project aimed at supporting student veteran transitions to college, a grant-funded project focused on student mental health and wellness, a juvenile justice mentorship project, and a working group focusing on trauma-informed pedagogy.
