The Educational Psychology PhD program is presently organized around three concentrations: (a) Research Methodology, Measurement, & Statistics, (b) Human Development & Family Science, (c) Gifted and Talented Education, and (d) Learning Sciences. The Special Education PhD program is organized around two concentrations: (e) Developmental Disabilities/Autism and (f) Learning Disabilities/Behavior Disorders. In addition, the Educational Psychology PhD supports concentrations in (g) Psychosocial Aspects of Sport, and (h) Sport Pedagogy and Motor Behavior in the Department of Kinesiology, Health Promotion and Recreation.
The Department invites applications for one of two positions as Senior Lecturer to begin Fall, 2023. The position is for an applicant with expertise in special education. The successful candidate will be expected to immediately contribute to the continued development and success of the department and growing the special education program through teaching, mentoring, and recruitment of students. Instructional roles include teaching undergraduate and possibly graduate level courses in traditional and online formats both on the main campus and at satellite sites. Representation of the discipline and department via committee participation and other relevant service activities is expected.
Minimum qualifications include an earned doctorate in Special Education. Doctorates in a closely related field will be considered as long as the clear purpose of the degree is special education. ABD candidates will be considered as long as the doctorate is successfully defended prior to the start date.
Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated teaching of K-12 students with disabilities, especially with populations from historically marginalized backgrounds like those found in Texas schools. We are particularly interested in candidates with college-level teaching and experiences in educational assessment resulting in special education eligibility decisions and recommendations for educational plans. It is preferred that one of the two positions be filled with a candidate with the credentials and experiences to support our master’s level educational diagnostician training program.
