Job Description

To apply for this job please visit

This is a tenure track, Assistant Professor, academic year position based in Flagstaff, Arizona, in the Department of Educational Psychology.  The appointment begins Fall 2022 academic semester.  The Department of Educational Psychology is located within the College of Education and offers a Ph.D. in Combined Counseling/School Psychology, Ed.S. in School Psychology, Master’s degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Counseling-School Counseling, Counseling-Student Affairs, and Human Relations.  The Department of Educational Psychology has statewide locations that also offer accredited programs.

Aligned with NAU’s mission “to develop solutions to challenges and drive innovation in a supportive, inclusive, and diverse environment,” the College of Education seeks to build on our strength in preparing culturally responsive educators. We are hiring five new tenure-track faculty who are experienced or emergent researchers, committed to addressing diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and access in Arizona PK-20 educational institutions. These faculty positions are part of a new initiative at NAU to foster equity and to promote the success of our diverse undergraduate and graduate student populations. Successful applicants will have a doctoral degree in areas of need as identified in the qualifications section, a record of research productivity, and a commitment to undergraduate and/or graduate teaching and mentoring. We particularly encourage applications from individuals who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color), disabled, and/or LGBTQ+.

With Arizona’s changing demographics — the largest population of students in the state’s public schools are Latinx, and Indigenous students represent 22 federally recognized tribes — the College of Education is focused on preparing individuals who can contribute to academic preparedness, positive educational outcomes, school climate, and fostering college-going and completion rates in economically and racially diverse communities. We seek candidates who ground their work in issues of equity, power, and justice to contribute to the College’s goal of developing professionals who implement anti-racist, culturally responsive, inclusive, and equitable practices. Relevant background for the positions includes expertise in one or more issues of race, culture, class, gender, language, disability and sexuality. Successful candidates will have experience and a research focus centering Indigenous and/or Latinx communities, issues, histories, and/or epistemologies.

The following tenure-track Assistant Professor positions are included in this cluster hire:

  • Bilingual Multicultural Education
  • Educational Leadership
  • Elementary Mathematics Education
  • Counseling Student Affairs
  • Diversity in Human Development and Behavior

As part of their faculty role, this position will include coordinating the Human Relations M.Ed. program. This 30-credit hour graduate program advances understanding of the diversity of human behavior, development, and interpersonal skills; and primarily enrolls working professionals from a wide sector of the economy, including business, military, law enforcement, academic, educational, and non-profit institutions. Program coursework focuses on the study of human development, personality, motivation, learning, social and cultural diversity, and the principles of behavior change. We strive to educate graduate students who are culturally responsive educators equipped to serve as effective leaders in educational and professional environments.


  1. Teach courses on diversity, development, and behavior across the EPS Department’s programs. Possible course assignments include, but are not limited to: Developmental Perspectives of Human Diversity, Educational Psychology Applied to Learning, Human Development, Personality Adjustment, College Student Development Theory, and Adolescent Psychology
  2. Teach in-person, blended, and online courses
  3. Maintain an active independent and collaborative research agenda aligned to the cluster hire goals
  4. Prepare and manage external grant proposals/programs
  5. Supervise graduate student research, including dissertations
  6. Serve as program coordinator for the Human Relations M.Ed. program, with duties including curriculum review, recruitment, and advisement of program students
  • Fulfill service responsibilities to the department, college, and the profession

Minimum Qualifications:

Earned Doctorate in Developmental Psychology, Educational Psychology or closely related field. ABD candidates may be considered only if they will have their degree by the start date

College teaching experience (can include college teaching as a graduate assistant)

Expertise in at least one area of scholarship relevant to the cluster hire focus as demonstrated by high-quality publications/presentations
