The Department of Psychology at The University of Memphis invites applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in School Psychology to begin August 2022. We are interested in applicants who can contribute to and will work closely with faculty and graduate students across the APA-accredited PhD program in School Psychology as well as the NASP-approved MA/EdS program in School Psychology.
For this position, we are primarily seeking applicants whose research and training interests focus on mental health and/or educational disparities experienced by minoritized students and families, social justice pedagogy, culturally responsive professional practices, and provision of educational and psychological services to underserved populations, and who can help increase the coverage of diversity in the research and training experiences we offer in our school psychology programs. Memphis provides a rich context for those wanting to conduct research on racial and ethnically minoritized and systemically marginalized populations. Our department is committed to welcoming faculty, students, and staff from varied backgrounds and intersectional identities because we recognize that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive department enhances opportunities for deeper learning and community impact. We seek colleagues who embrace a multicultural orientation and share our values regarding diversity and social justice, and are committed to addressing systemic inequities experienced by minoritized students and families.
Successful applicants will have earned a PhD in School Psychology from an APA-accredited program and be license-eligible as a Health Service Provider in Tennessee. Commitment to excellence in research and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels and in supervision of graduate research and clinical practica are expected. Applicants should demonstrate evidence of research productivity and potential for success in securing external funding.
