Assistant Teaching Professor at the University of Minnesota

I am pleased to share that the University of Minnesota School Psychology Program is hiring an assistant teaching professor to join our faculty to start in August 2024. Note, this is a new position related to several 5-year grants, so it comes with the option of renewal for at least the duration of those awards. The UMN program is dynamic and forward looking, prioritizing anti-racism, social justice, and the scientist-practitioner orientation across all elements of the program.
