Job Description
Assistant, Associate or Professor, School Psychology
Gonzaga University’s School of Education in Spokane, WA invites applications for one full-time, tenure-track position within the Department of School Psychology at the rank of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor, depending on qualifications. The department is growing and expanding upon its Ed.S. program (which received full NASP accreditation after only four years in existence) to include a Psy.D. program commencing fall 2023. Therefore, interested applicants will be joining a vibrant community of scholars to innovate, create, and shape the profession into the foreseeable future. School Psychology faculty enjoy teaching small cohort sizes (e.g., 12-15), mentoring candidates one-on-one, and engaging candidates in meaningful community-based projects. Details about the school psychology programs are available online at https://www.gonzaga.edu/school-of-education/graduate/ed-specialist-in-school-psychology and https://www.gonzaga.edu/school-of-education/graduate/psyd-school-psychology.

The Department of School Psychology invites applications for an open rank position that is commensurate with professional experiences. This position will include leadership responsibilities within the department (e.g., chair, program director). Therefore, the ideal candidate will have proven track record of teaching excellence, scholarship, successful advising of graduate candidates, and previous leadership experiences in school psychology. In addition, this position is responsible for teaching up to 12 semester hour credits per academic year.

Gonzaga University is located on the banks of the Spokane river approximately 1 mile from downtown Spokane. Spokane provides its residents with a variety of activities from accessible downtown shopping and entertainment to the beautiful landscape of the Inland Northwest. Spokane's longtime motto is “Near Nature Near Perfect” as its residents are minutes away from beautiful lakes, high elevation deserts, and rustic mountains. We encourage applications from women, members of minority groups, protected persons, and others committed to expanding the diversity of the profession.
