    The Department of Psychological Science and Counseling at Austin Peay State University (APSU) seeks to fill two (2) tenure-track faculty positions in the area of Counseling Psychology and one (1) tenure-track faculty position in the area of Industrial-Organizational Psychology. Both positions will begin in August 2022. 


    The positions in counseling psychology  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. Persons hired for these positions 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. 


    For the positions in counseling psychology:

    • A doctorate (PsyD or PhD) in Counseling Psychology (preferred) or Clinical Psychology 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.


    The position in industrial-organizational psychology will serve our Master of Science program in Industrial and Organizational Psychology (MSIO) and in our undergraduate program.

    • A Ph.D. in Psychology is required, with an area of discipline in Industrial-Organizational Psychology. ABD will be considered if all Ph.D. qualifications are met by the date of hire, August 1, 2022.
    • Candidates who demonstrate a strong interest in undergraduate education, strong interest in contributing to general education teaching and advising, and departmental service are preferred.
    • Evidence of research and scholarly activities demonstrating potential to meet requirements for retention, tenure, and promotion. 


    The Department of Psychological Science and Counseling is a diverse, dynamic, and collegial environment that is home to a large undergraduate program in psychological science, a Master of Science program in Industrial and Organizational Psychology (MSIO), a Master of Science program in Counseling, a PsyD program, and a graduate certificate program in Academic Advising.
