Kennesaw State University is now accepting applications for multiple research-intensive, nine-month, tenure track Assistant Professor of Psychology faculty positions in the Department of Psychological Science, beginning August 1, 2022. We are seeking applicants with a background in Clinical psychology, Sports psychology, and/or Experimental/Health psychology.
The Department of Psychological Science at Kennesaw State University is seeking applicants with a demonstrated record of impactful research, teaching excellence, and a commitment to diversity and inclusion. Research-intensive, nine-month tenure track faculty within the Department of Psychological Science are expected to engage in programmatic research that results in publications in refereed journals and extramural funding. Collaboration among scholars and research focusing on the advancement of military and/or first-responder populations as well as community health is encouraged.
Faculty are expected to teach undergraduate courses in their area of specialization, as well as courses that are part of the required core in the psychology major. The standard teaching load is 9 credit hours (i.e., 3 courses) per semester, and faculty on a research-intensive workload have a reduced course load. Faculty in the department have a strong commitment to undergraduate education and mentorship and to create inclusive learning environments for students with diverse backgrounds. Service to the department, college, university, and/or profession is expected.
The successful applicant will have demonstrated evidence of or very strong potential for extramural funding, experience publishing in refereed journals, and documented evidence of teaching excellence.
An earned Ph.D. in Psychology, or a closely related field, or the foreign equivalent is required. Exceptional ABD candidates will be considered, but the degree must be conferred by the beginning of the contract period.
