School Psychology

Tenure-Track Assistant/Associate Professor

The Department of Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) at Georgia State University is searching for a tenure track faculty member to join our doctoral and specialist-level programs in School Psychology as an Associate or advanced Assistant Professor. The individual chosen for this position will have an earned doctorate in School Psychology or a closely related field, preferably from an APA-accredited program. The successful candidate should be eligible for certification as a school psychologist and/or licensure as a psychologist.

The successful applicant will have a systematic line of published research that shows potential for continued work that will make contributions to the literature and result in external funding. While the areas of research are open, preference will be given to candidates with substantive work focused on equity and social justice, advocacy, and anti-racist/culturally responsive practices. Similarly, the areas of teaching are open but will include some coursework connected to the candidate's research. The job responsibilities for this position include maintaining an independent line of research, participation in departmental and university-wide collaborative grant and research projects, a commitment to excellent teaching, mentoring graduate student research, serving on dissertation committees, and participating in service activities that may occur at the program, departmental, College and University levels.

The CPS department has nine graduate programs, including three doctoral programs (Counseling Psychology, Counselor Education and Practice, and School Psychology) and three master's programs (Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling, and School Counseling), as well as the combined M.Ed./Ed.S. degree in School Psychology. Our program and department have a strong commitment to social justice and multicultural issues, and this influences our curricula, outreach, and service as well as faculty and student research. Highly productive and collaborative research efforts are supported by two active research centers coordinated by CPS faculty: the Center for Research on School Safety, School Climate, & Classroom Management and the Center for the Study of Stress, Trauma, & Resilience. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to collaborate with researchers from both centers, the department, and other programs across the CEHD and university.

The School Psychology Program, Department of Counseling and Psychological Services, and Georgia State University have a strong commitment to diversity. Candidates from underrepresented groups (e.g., women, racial and ethnic minority groups, gender or sexual minority groups, religious or spiritual minority groups, or persons with disabilities) are especially encouraged to apply. Atlanta is an exceptionally diverse and vibrant metropolitan area that provides numerous opportunities for cultural events as well as professional collaborations within GSU and the broader metro-Atlanta area.

Application Procedure:

Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, an unofficial or official transcript of highest degree earned, and the names of three professional references to Yolanda Parker either via email (yparker@gsu.edu) or mail to Yolanda Parker, Counseling and Psychological Services, P.O. Box 3980, Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia 30302-3980.

Preference will be given to applications and supporting documents received by November 15, 2020, but the position will remain open until a suitable candidate is selected. Please be advised that, should you be recommended for a position, the University System of Georgia Board of Regents policy requires the completion of a background check as a prior condition of employment.
