Responsibilities also will include mentoring student research, academic advisement, and university services. Candidates should also have an active research program that will involve students. Candidates must have completed a doctoral degree from an APA-accredited program and a pre-doctoral internship from an APA accredited and/or APPIC approved program. The successful candidate is expected to pursue licensure as a psychologist in North Carolina.

The expected teaching load for all the positions is 12 credit hours per semester. Although a Ph.D. is required for both positions, candidates who are very near degree completion will be considered.
