The Department of Psychology at The Citadel invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Clinical or Counseling Psychology to begin in August 2020. Located in historic Charleston, South Carolina, The Citadel has been ranked for the past eight years (by U.S. News and World Report) as the top public college in the South among master’s-granting institutions. The position will primarily teach graduate courses in our robust Clinical-Counseling MA program that is accredited by the Masters in Psychology and Counseling Accreditation Council (MPCAC) and trains Licensed Professional Counselors to work in a variety of settings. Candidates will also have the opportunity to work with our undergraduate psychology students, including engagement in their program of research. The specific areas of expertise are open; however, preference will be given to candidates whose expertise is closely relevant to diversity and multicultural issues and/or addiction and substance abuse. In addition, we seek candidates who fit with our philosophy of training students in the use of empirically-supported treatments and evidence-based practice. Successful applicants are expected to demonstrate strong interests in mentoring and supervising students' clinical work. The ideal candidate will demonstrate evidence of successful work with individuals from diverse backgrounds.

Minimum Qualifications:

Minimum requirements include a doctorate in clinical or counseling psychology (licensed or license-eligible preferred), documentation of instructional effectiveness at the graduate and undergraduate level, and evidence of research accomplishment. The Department of Psychology (with 11 full-time faculty) has approximately 75 undergraduate majors; in addition, we have about 100 graduate students in two programs -- Clinical Counseling and School Psychology, both accredited (by MPCAC and NASP/CAEP, respectively). The Citadel is a co-educational military college that provides a unique undergraduate learning environment complemented by a non-military Citadel Graduate College. The Citadel Foundation provides support for faculty research, development, and professional travel. The campus is located on the banks of the Ashley River on the Charleston peninsula, where the mild winters, nearby beaches, cultural activities, and culinary options combine to create a vibrant place to live. Additionally, the nearby Medical University of South Carolina and Ralph H Johnson VA hospital offer opportunities for collaboration and research.

Candidates should apply online and should attach the following: curriculum vitae; cover letter that addresses teaching interests and philosophy, research interests, and general suitability for the position; relevant reprints/preprints (which may be hyperlinked within vitae or cover letter if preferred); and at least three letters of reference. Questions should be directed to Dr. Steve Nida at [email protected] or 843-953-5320.

Review of applications will begin on October 1 and will continue until the position is filled

The Citadel is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer actively committed to ensuring diversity in all campus employment.
