Importantly, candidates, regardless of research emphasis, should be able to teach within the areas of core curriculum (e.g., clinical interviewing/assessment, empirically-based interventions, ethics, multicultural psychology, psychopathology, etc.).


As part of a broader cluster hire, outstanding senior candidates are invited to apply for an Associate/Full Professor position in Clinical Psychology who will serve as the Director of Clinical Training (DCT) for the development of a PhD program in Clinical Psychology.
