The Department of Education and Human Development (EHD) in the College of Education at Clemson University seeks a 9-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor or a Clinical (non-tenure track) Assistant Professor with an anticipated starting date of August 2019. In your letter of application, please indicate which of the two positions you wish to apply for. The College of Education at Clemson is dedicated to promoting the growth, education, and development of all individuals and engaging students in high quality, applied research and professional learning. The College of Education is committed to serving underperforming schools, particularly those in impoverished communities. The successful candidate will join a collaborative faculty committed to fulfilling this mission through research, teaching, and service in higher educational and P-12 settings. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience and qualifications. Clemson University is committed to diversifying its faculty, student body, and staff.

The successful candidate (for either the Assistant Professor position or the Clinical Assistant Professor position) will be expected to develop and maintain an active scholarly research agenda and participate in external research and grant activities. In addition, the new faculty member will be expected to develop and teach undergraduate and graduate-level courses, recruit and advise doctoral-level graduate students, actively contribute to the growth and continuous improvement of the Learning Sciences Doctoral Program, and provide service to the profession, university, and state. In exchange for a partial reduction in scholarship expectations, the successful candidate for the Clinical Assistant Professor position will serve as director of a quantitative methods research lab, supporting and collaborating with College of Education faculty and doctoral students on their research.


Required qualifications (for either position): Earned doctorate in Educational Psychology or a related field, with an emphasis in quantitative research methodology. Preference will be given to candidates with doctoral training and research experience in advanced research methodologies including, but not limited to, psychometrics, multilevel modeling, structural equation modeling, meta-analysis, applied statistics, experimental design, and educational data mining. Teaching experience at the P-12 and/or university levels is desirable.
