Candidates with demonstrated record of teaching effectiveness and student engagement will be given priority.

The University of St. Thomas is committed to hiring faculty who can help it not only fulfill its integrated mission - the formation of the whole person for flourishing in this life and the next - but also advance it in new ways. The University's Catholic identity is the center of this mission, a Catholicism expressed for our own age by the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Pope St. John Paul II's Ex Corde Ecclesiae. The University asks all candidates applying for this position to consider these documents to ensure their professional goals and practices can align with them. While applicants need not be Catholic, they must be able to support the University as it seeks to be faithful to and embody the riches of the Catholic intellectual tradition.

This position will teach an annual course load of 24 contact hours at the graduate level in the Master's in Applied Sport and Performance Psychology (MASPP) program and undergraduate level for the Psychology Department. The successful candidate will provide service work as needed by the department and the university, such as academic advising in support of the department (undergraduate and graduate level) and mentorship for the MASPP program. New hire will be required to conduct necessary service and maintain active research portfolio per current policy for Promotion & Tenure.


Ph.D. in Psychology in related field (e.g., Sport, Counseling, Clinical, I/O). ABD in Psychology will be considered but the degree must be completed by the time of appointment. Excellence in teaching and service; and a commitment to the university's mission are requirements for the position. Administrative experience a plus.
