Mission or Goal of Unit:

The mission of the College of Humanities and Sciences is to serve as the intellectual heart and soul of our institution and wider community. The College of Humanities and Sciences:
  • Prepares lifelong learners to participate actively as engaged and responsible citizens
  • Propels scientific research and scholarship to improve the human condition, cure and treat diseases, and promote healthy environments
  • Grounds us in our history, critically examines our present human condition and empowers students to create more equitable local and global communities
  • Provides communities with a passionate and creative workforce that serves as a powerful engine for economic development and innovative solutions to problems

As the intellectual lifeblood of VCU and our community, the College of Humanities and Sciences seeks to inspire our students to explore their passions and dreams as individuals and provide the context to understand their place in the world and connections with others-locally, globally and throughout time. Most importantly, our educational and research environment addresses an array of technological, health-related and societal problems, as well as providing profound insights and reflections of what it means to be human and humane.

Chief Purpose of this position: The Department of Psychology at Virginia Commonwealth University invites applications for a term (non-tenure track) faculty position. This nine-month position is at the rank of Assistant Professor. The expected appointment date is August 16, 2023.

Position Responsibilities: The successful candidate will have undergraduate teaching experience, especially in classes focused on clinical topics, such as psychopathology, helping relationships, or treatments, including treatment of addiction. Although undergraduate teaching will be a primary focus for the position, candidates with experience in graduate teaching such as clinical interviewing skills or clinical supervision also will be viewed favorably. In addition to the above-mentioned teaching activities, the faculty members will participate in service activities equivalent to about 15-20% of their time. There is no required research effort for the position.

Required Qualifications: The successful candidate will be required to have a Ph.D. from an APA-accredited Clinical or Counseling Psychology program and be licensed or license-eligible as a Clinical Psychologist in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Demonstrated experience working in and with a diverse faculty, staff, and student environment or commitment to do so as a faculty member at VCU is required. Preference will be given to candidates with a successful record of teaching and working with diverse students, including underrepresented minority students and other underserved population.
