Non-Tenure-Track Faculty Position

Doctor of Psychology Program


Augsburg University offers more than 50 undergraduate majors and 11 graduate degrees to approximately 4,000 students of diverse backgrounds. With a student/faculty ratio of 15:1, the University focuses on close personal interaction with faculty and experiential education opportunities on campus and in the community. An Augsburg education is defined by excellence in the liberal arts and professional studies, guided by the faith and values of the Lutheran church, and shaped by its urban and global settings. See more information about Augsburg University below.


The Doctor of Psychology program at Augsburg University invites applications for a non-tenure-track faculty position to begin August 22, 2022. The Clinical Psychology PsyD program at Augsburg University continues the legacy of the former Minnesota School of Professional Psychology of providing excellent training to future clinical psychologists using a practitioner-scholar model with an emphasis on multiculturalism and social justice. The Program is relatively new to Augsburg and is engaging in an APA-accredited teach-out for former MSPP students, as well as seeking accredited-on-contingency status for our new students. Our program is growing and expanding. We offer small class sizes and a cohesive, egalitarian faculty. Classes are generally offered on weekdays, with occasional evening classes. 


Responsibilities include teaching, scholarship, service, and academic advising. All faculty are licensed psychologists and faculty are afforded one day per week for professional practice and/or scholarship. Successful candidates will have demonstrated competence and experience in teaching Cognitive and Objective Assessment. This candidate will be leading the program’s assessment curriculum; candidate will also lead seminars in psychological assessment and engage in long-term planning of the assessment curriculum. The candidate will also be expected to teach additional courses that may include (but are not limited to): Projective Assessment, Physiological Psychology; Cognition and Affect; Introduction to Diversity, Person-Centered Psychotherapy, History and Systems of Psychology; and other topics depending on candidate interest and program needs. Candidates are not expected to teach all of these additional courses, but should be able to address a range. Candidates with a robust program of research and expertise in multicultural assessment and/or neuropsychology, as well as leadership, research, and practice with clients and/or students from diverse backgrounds are preferred.  


Requirements for this position include a Ph.D. or PsyD. in clinical psychology or a closely related field (e.g., counseling, school psychology) by the time the position begins. Licensure as a psychologist is preferred but not required. The Clinical Psychology Program at Augsburg University and the University itself are especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute to the diversity of our community through their teaching, research, and/or service.


Among the distinctive features of the University are its deep dedication to civic and community engagement, and a strong belief in the integration of liberal arts and professional studies across all programs.  The University’s commitment to the local neighborhood and the world is enhanced through the work of four signature centers:  the Christensen Center for Vocation, the Center for Global Education, the Sabo Center for Citizenship and Learning, and the Strommen Center for Meaningful Work.  At both undergraduate and graduate levels, students actively engage in international travel and intercultural experiences that broaden their view of the world and deepen their engagement in it.


Augsburg’s main campus is located in the vibrant Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, one of the most diverse areas in the Twin Cities.  The University of Minnesota West Bank campus and one of the city’s largest medical complexes are adjacent to Augsburg; the Mississippi River and the Seven Corners Theatre district are just a few blocks away.  In addition to its Minneapolis campus, Augsburg has a vibrant branch campus in Rochester, the fastest growing city in Minnesota and headquarters of the Mayo Health System.  In addition to these locations, Augsburg owns and operates international sites in Mexico, Guatemala, and Namibia.


To apply for this position, please go to to upload a cover letter, CV, and official transcripts.  As part of the online application process, you will be required to provide the names of two professional references.  If your application advances in this search, you will be notified prior to Augsburg contacting your references.  To ensure full consideration, application materials should be received by December 1, 2021.
