    Associate and Assistant Professors of Psychology

    Clemson’s Department of Psychology invites applications for five tenure-track faculty members. This search includes a cluster hire of three tenure-track faculty members who can further our growing emphasis in Health Psychology. The goal of this cluster hire is to create a cohort of faculty from diverse backgrounds whose scholarship focuses on health-related issues. For these positions, we are particularly interested in individuals with research interests in psychopathology, diversity/disparities in health, health and aging, addiction, neurobiology, or any other content areas within Health Psychology that can enhance our departmental expertise. One position will be filled at the Assistant Professor rank and the other two will be filled at either the Assistant or Associate Professor rank.

    We are also inviting applications for one tenure-track faculty member with expertise in Industrial-Organizational Psychology. For this Assistant level position, we are open as to specific research interests, but are especially interested in individuals with research interests in team science, occupational health, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, or cutting-edge topics in personnel psychology.

    We are also inviting applications for one tenure-track faculty member with expertise in Quantitative Methods. For this assistant level position, we are open as to specific research interests, but would prefer applicants whose research interests complement those of our current faculty, many of whom have expertise in Human Factors, Industrial-Organizational, and/or Health Psychology. The successful candidate for this position will be expected to contribute to our doctoral level statistics/methodology sequence.

    All five positions will begin fall of 2022. The ideal candidates will have a strong research orientation with potential for extramural support, and a commitment to excellence in graduate and undergraduate education.

    As a faculty member at Clemson University, you will be immersed into a community of scholars committed to fostering diversity and inclusive excellence. We are looking for people whose background or interests align with this commitment. Candidates are welcome to include a statement in this regard in their application.
