The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (http://www.psych.umass.edu) invites applications for a tenure-track, academic year, faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in our Clinical Psychology Program, starting in fall 2024.  We seek an outstanding and creative scientist with an established record of success and a program of research, or evidence of the ability to establish one, with the potential to address the biggest problems in the field of mental health. We recognize that high-impact programs of research take many forms, including potential for sustained extramural funding, driving paradigm changes in public policy and/or discourse, or pioneering the study of new and important areas within clinical psychology.  

 Preferred applicants may possess expertise in any area of clinical psychology, including interdisciplinary fields connected to clinical psychology, whose work complements and broadens existing strengths in our program (e.g., clinical and developmental neuroscience, family research, psychotherapy and intervention research). We believe that research that is community-based, utilizes qualitative approaches, and addresses issues related to diversity science are rigorous and important areas of inquiry in our discipline. We are excited to review applications from candidates whose research programs engage with such topics and methods, as well as those from candidates who utilize innovative approaches to neuroscience and advanced quantitative methods in clinical psychology. 


 The University is committed to active recruitment of a diverse faculty and student body. The University of Massachusetts is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer of women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities and encourages applications from these and other protected group members. Because broad diversity is essential to an inclusive climate and critical to the University’s goals of achieving excellence in all areas, we holistically assess the many qualifications of each applicant and favorably consider an individual’s record working with students and colleagues with broadly diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds in educational, research or other work activities.  We also favorably consider experience overcoming or helping others overcome barriers to an academic career and degree.
