The Department of Psychological Science and Counseling at Austin Peay State University (APSU) seeks to fill a tenure-track faculty position in the area of Counseling Psychology with a start date of August 1, 2024. This position will serve our new PsyD program in Counseling Psychology which launched Fall 2020. The program offers a generalist track as well as a concentration in Serving Military Personnel, Veterans, and their Families. The person hired for this position will have a unique opportunity to help build and shape an innovative, forward-looking doctoral training program in health service psychology. Strong candidates will possess a deep commitment to the foundational values that characterize the field of counseling psychology: a holistic, contextual, strengths-based approach to intervention, emphasis on integration of science and practice, and a steadfast dedication to diversity and social justice. A doctorate (PsyD or PhD) in Counseling Psychology (preferred) or Clinical Psychology (acceptable) from an APA-accredited program is required. Preferred candidates will be licensed as a psychologist HSP or be license-eligible in TN within 1 year of hire. Clinical, teaching, and research areas are open, but interest and expertise in substance use disorders, health psychology, neuropsychology, or geropsychology as well as experience working with military populations is desirable but not required. All APSU faculty are expected to be engaged in university and community service, and scholarly activities. The university has plentiful funding opportunities to help support research, teaching, and professional development.
