The anticipated starting date for all positions is August 23, 2017.
We seek an assistant professor who is a strong researcher with a commitment to seek extramural funding in any area within the field of Counseling Psychology; however, we have a particular interest in individuals researching topics at the intersection of culture and health psychology, or who are able to collaborate with current faculty focusing on health psychology. Applicants should also have the ability to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels (including practicum) and be willing to contribute service to the department, college, university, and profession. Candidates must receive their PhD from an APA-accredited Counseling Psychology program by August 2017. The Counseling Psychology Doctoral Program at TTU has been APA-accredited since 1964.
