Fielding Graduate University is an innovative global community dedicated to educating scholars, leaders, and practitioners in pursuit of a more just and sustainable world. We do this by providing exemplary interdisciplinary programs within a distributed and relational learning model grounded in student-driven inquiry and leading to enhanced knowledge. Fielding has approximately 1,050 students and 150 faculty members residing throughout the United States and internationally. Please visit our website at to learn more.


We are seeking a Psychology Program Director for the School of Psychology to work remotely on a full-time basis.



The Psychology Program Director provides creative leadership and day-to-day management of Fielding Graduate University’s General Psychology PhD program. This Program Director is an academic leader with administrative and teaching responsibilities and reports to the Dean of the School of Psychology.


The Program Director is responsible for academic program planning and management; budget planning and management; selection, engagement, and development of faculty; faculty workload; and student satisfaction. The Program Director has oversight of recruitment and retention of students, admissions, new student orientation, and student success. The Director is expected to support Fielding’s mission, vision, and values and to help create a positive, inclusive, and diverse community culture. The Program Director is responsible for actively engaging with psychology faculty governance in proposing, developing, adopting, and implementing academic policies in the service of continual program improvement.



Applicants must have an earned PhD in a non-clinical/non-counseling area of psychology (e.g., cognitive psychology, social psychology, developmental psychology) from an accredited institution. A combination of five or more years’ administrative and teaching experience in graduate education, experience with online and distributed learning, experience teaching and leading people from diverse backgrounds in a distributed environment, and active involvement with the profession through research, professional associations, and service is also required.



• Ability to work collaboratively with other academic leaders, faculty, students, and staff

• Ability to work well in a relational, distributed environment

• Comfortable and effective in a collaborative, remote work environment

• Demonstrated ability to produce scholarly research and writing, and deliver professional presentations

• Proactive and responsive leader on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion

• Proactive and timely communicator with superb interpersonal, verbal, written, and online communication skills

• Ability to effectively guide change processes, navigating the tension between structure (standardization, policies, guidelines, consistency) and freedom (autonomy, variation, choice)



Improving diversity, equity and inclusion is an active process that requires continuous commitment to promote collaborative learning and change through attracting, retaining, graduating, and honoring a more diverse population of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community friends. Fielding’s commitment to social and ecological justice is part of our explicit commitment to understanding, analyzing, and acting to reduce inequality, oppression, and social stratification, recognizing the linkages between economic, social, racial and ecological justice. The University strives to ensure that the values of DEI are embodied in all academic programs and course content, and also in faculty, staff and student performance and assessment. We challenge our community to think boldly and take specific actions that are realistic and measurable. By working here, you join a diverse and vibrant community that advances Fielding’s world-changing mission in meaningful ways, inspires innovation and collaboration, and builds skills and expertise.


Thank you for considering employment with Fielding Graduate University. Our employees are among our most valued resources, and we are committed to maintaining a diverse and inclusive workforce comprised of talented, qualified, and hardworking individuals. We strive to take good care of our employees and their families with excellent benefits, and to provide a stimulating and supportive work environment with opportunities for professional growth and advancement.
