The Department of Psychology at The Citadel invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Clinical or Counseling Psychology to begin in August 2023.  Located in historic Charleston, South Carolina, The Citadel has been ranked for the past 8 years (by U.S. News and World Report) as the top public college in the South among master’s-granting institutions.  The Citadel’s Psychology Department has long been recognized for supporting and advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. Candidates that can speak to and add to this mission are strongly encouraged to apply.

The position will primarily teach graduate courses in our MA in Psychology: Clinical-Counseling program that is accredited by the Masters in Psychology and Counseling Accreditation Council (MPCAC) and trains Licensed Professional Counselors to work in a variety of settings. Candidates will also have the opportunity to teach and work with our undergraduate psychology students, including engagement in their program of research. The specific areas of expertise are open; however, we seek candidates who fit with our philosophy of training students in the use of empirically-supported treatments and evidence-based practice. Successful applicants are expected to demonstrate strong interests in mentoring and supervising students' clinical work. The ideal candidate will demonstrate evidence of successful work with individuals from diverse backgrounds.
