We seek candidates with a Ph.D. in clinical or counseling psychology whose interests expand our research areas. We have a particular interest in candidates with training and expertise in neuropsychology, childhood, or aging/lifespan development.

Psychology faculty serve as research mentors to talented undergraduates throughout the academic year and full-time during the summer. The Psychology Department has outstanding teaching and research space, as well as excellent university support, including start-up funds. Furman University is an academic partner in the nationally-recognized Health Sciences Center at Prisma Health, South Carolina’s largest not-for-profit health care organization. As such, faculty have unique opportunities to develop clinically-based research collaborations.

Founded in 1826, Furman University is a highly ranked liberal arts college with a mission to offer all students an integrated four-year pathway that prepares them for lives of purpose and impact. Faculty serve as skilled and thoughtful academic advisors, providing individualized guidance for students along their pathways. The successful candidate will join a growing psychology department which currently includes 10 tenure-track faculty, 3 non-tenure track faculty, and 3 full-time staff. Our students enjoy a rigorous classroom-based experience along with numerous opportunities for engaged learning experiences (e.g. research, internships, and study away).

Furman University is committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in all facets of university life, and strives to create an anti-racist community through excellence in teaching, mentorship, and programming.  Numerous initiatives and programs are underway or planned to promote these ideals, including: historic projects, dialogue initiatives, the Center for Inclusive Communities, and a new major in Africana Studies. The successful candidate will have the ability to work with historically underrepresented students, including students of color, and will be committed to assisting the university in its continuing efforts to become a model of inclusive excellence. Please include a diversity statement in your application.
