DESCRIPTION: Humboldt State University’s Department of Psychology invites applications for an academic year tenure-track position with a specialization in Clinical or Counseling Psychology.

Professional Qualifications: A Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree in Psychology or closely related area from an accredited college or university is preferred at the time of appointment. Applicants with considerable progress towards terminal degree completion by appointment date will be considered. Completion of terminal degree is required prior to the start of the second probationary year following initial appointment. A demonstrated record of excellence in teaching and promoting inclusive student success is desirable.

The successful candidate must demonstrate the following:

• Commitment to and/or experience promoting and fostering a learning environment that is supportive of individuals from diverse backgrounds;

• Record of, or potential for, involving students in research and scholarly activity;

• Record of scholarship through publication and participation in professional organizations;

• Potential for effective teaching or teaching experience using a variety of methodologies;

• Interest and ability to teach a broad range of courses (major, general education, etc.);

• Willingness to participate in the development of online learning experiences; and

• Professional focus on academic success among students from traditionally underrepresented groups and from first-generation college students.

At the time of appointment, the successful candidate, if not a U.S. citizen, must have authorization from the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services to work in the United States. For information on the University policy on support for non-immigrant probationary faculty visa acquisition, please visit:

Evidence of degree(s) is required at time of hire.

Professional Duties: Candidates should be committed to teaching excellence that involves effective and innovative pedagogical practices and active learning. The successful candidates will be expected to develop a strong research program (area of specialization open) that includes graduate and/or undergraduate research opportunities. Responsibilities include: Instruction in undergraduate and graduate courses in Psychology; research and thesis supervision; advising; service to the university, profession, and community; participation in campus and system-wide committees; maintaining office hours; working collaboratively and productively with colleagues; and participation in traditional academic functions. Candidates should demonstrate interest in and ability to teach at least two of the following courses: Dynamics of Abnormal Behavior, Interviewing and Counseling Techniques, Personality Theory and Research, Advanced Psychopathology: Diagnosis of Mental Disorders, and Advanced Psychotherapy with Children and Families.

Instructional assignments will be consistent with the programmatic needs of the department and students. During the first two years of the probationary period, teaching responsibilities will be reduced by approximately one course each semester. The reduced teaching assignment supports the establishment of an active research agenda that is required for retention, tenure and promotion.

After appointment the successful candidate will need to demonstrate quality performance in the three areas in the Retention, Tenure, and Promotion process at HSU–teaching, scholarly/creative activities, and service, which is governed by the University Senate and the Collective Bargaining Agreement that stipulates faculty rights and responsibilities within the CSU system.

General Information: The Department of Psychology offers a B.A. degree, a minor program, course options for general education requirements and electives, service courses for other majors, and three graduate options leading to the M.A. degree in School Psychology, Counseling Psychology (MFT), and Academic Research in Psychology. Faculty with specializations in each area contributes to all programs and options in the department. Additional information about the Department of Psychology can be found at:

Application: Qualified candidates should submit the following materials through Interfolio:

• Letter of application;

• Curriculum vitae;

• Statement of teaching and research interests;

• Evidence of teaching effectiveness (e.g., teaching evaluations), if available;
