PVAMU has an enrollment of more than 8,000 students and offers bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in a variety of disciplines. The University’s target service area for undergraduate, graduate and outreach programs includes the Texas Gulf Coast Region; the rapidly growing residential and commercial area known as the Northwest Houston Corridor; and urban Texas centers.

 

QUALIFICATIONS: To be considered for the position, applicants should have an earned doctorate from a regionally accredited university in psychology and have credentials that warrant appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor. The successful applicant must demonstrate the ability to teach diverse groups of students at the undergraduate level.
