Job Details

The Department of Psychology at the University of Denver is a research-oriented department, which values a collaborative and integrative approach to psychological science that fosters intellectual curiosity and innovation and invests in people in a supportive and inclusive environment (see for more information). Our mission is to advance psychological science by generating and sharing new knowledge through collaborative scholarship, educating and mentoring student scholars, and contributing to the public good. Our vision is to be an inclusive intellectual community that fosters discovery and innovation.

Position Summary
We seek a candidate for a 9-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor position, beginning Fall 2022, in the clinical psychology area. Our Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program is APA-accredited and was ranked #50 of clinical Ph.D. programs nationally by U.S. News and World Report in 2020. Our clinical program ascribes to a clinical science model and belongs to the Academy of Psychological Clinical Science. We have a specialty emphasis in children, adolescents, and families. Candidates should be license eligible in the state of Colorado.

For this position, we seek candidates with a program of research focused on inequities that impact externalizing psychopathology. We define the externalizing domain broadly to include behaviors and disorders, such as (but not limited to) aggression, temperamental factors, emotion dysregulation, oppositionality, ADHD, conduct problems, and substance use/abuse. We have special interest in scholars who address inequities and externalizing psychopathology with expertise in (1) early childhood, (2) adolescence, and/or (3) family processes and factors (e.g., parenting practices, dyadic and family relationships, adversity and stressful life events). We also define inequities broadly to encompass a full range of systems and issues that impact underserved populations in mental health. We see possibilities for a scholar to connect with our current research at many methodological levels, including (but not limited to) basic science, prevention, screening and assessment, intervention, and/or implementation.
