Assistant Professor of Psychology (20-20)

Francis Marion University and the Department of Psychology invite applications for a tenure-track, Assistant Professor of Clinical/Counseling Psychology.

The Department of Psychology is interested in continuing the excellence of its Master of Science in Clinical Psychology program, which is accredited by the Masters in Psychology and Counseling Accreditation Council (MPCAC) and trains Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs) to work in a variety of settings. Thus, the faculty member will teach a combination of undergraduate courses and graduate courses based on the faculty member’s specific area of specialization. While the area of research is open, the faculty member will be expected to establish and maintain a program of meaningful interdisciplinary research that is engaging to and inclusive of both undergraduate and graduate students. The clinical psychology faculty member should expect to play an active role in training, supervising, and supporting graduate students.

Minimum requirements include a doctorate in clinical or counseling psychology (licensed or license-eligible preferred) from a program accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). The Department of Psychology (comprised of 10 full-time faculty) has approximately 300 undergraduate majors; in addition to approximately 75 graduate students within three accredited/approved programs: Clinical/Counseling, School Psychology, and Applied Behavior Analysis.

We offer an energetic, congenial faculty and a collaborative work environment. Generous internal funding, opportunities for research and professional development, competitive summer research stipends, and well-established community partnerships make FMU a great place to work. Also offered are excellent clinical and research facilities at the Center for the Child and the Health Sciences Complex.
