Department of Psychology, College of Arts & Sciences, is seeking a full-time, tenure-track faculty member to join our department's Adult Clinical Psychology division starting in the fall of 2017. Appointment will likely be at the Assistant Professor level, but the possibility exists for an appointment at a higher level.
The existing Adult track faculty are a diverse and active group whose work integrates clinical science with basic research in personality, evolutionary, and motivational psychology. As a group, we are committed to the idea that an understanding of normal behavior fosters a better understanding of problem behavior. Much of the research currently being done by members of this group revolves around the following themes:
- Psychological, cognitive, motivational, neurological, and genetic influences on vulnerability to (and the course of) mood disorders, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorders, and schizophrenia
- Basic processes of personality and self-regulation, including coping with stress
- Evolutionary analyses of emotions, and social behaviors, including work on their proximal antecedents and their links to other aspects of normal and problematic human functioning.
- Ways to enhance the effective treatment of mood and anxiety disorders and schizophrenia
- Processes that underlie the experience and regulation of various kinds of emotions and moods
We are seeking a clinical psychologist whose interests would complement and supplement those of the existing faculty group. We would particularly welcome an experimental clinical psychologist, with an interest in self-regulatory processes, defined broadly from a cognitive, personality, and/or emotional perspective. With regard to specialty area, we are open to a wide range of possibilities. Our primary concern is that candidates use sound research methods to investigate important questions and problems.
The person hired will be expected to continue to develop an independent research program. This person is also expected to be able to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate level, supervise graduate students in both research and clinical domains, and serve on thesis, dissertation, and other departmental committees.
To ensure full consideration, apply by October 15, 2016. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, reprints or preprints, a brief statement of current research and teaching interests, and four letters of reference electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
