The Department of Psychology at the University of Virginia invites candidates to apply for an Assistant professor tenure-track position in Clinical Psychology. We are seeking a candidate to join our vibrant research, teaching, and practice community and contribute to our collaborative culture. The appointment begins with the fall term of 2023, with a target start date of August 25, 2023.
We are seeking a candidate who is conducting cutting-edge research in any area of clinical psychology that integrates a developmental lens, broadly speaking, including but not limited to individual, familial and sociocultural processes or clinical interventions that enhance positive development or mitigate against risk across the lifespan, developmental psychopathology, differences across development, and developmental neuroscience. Our department values a strong publication record, engagement with and dissemination of research within and beyond the academy, evidence of pursuing grant funding, evidence of rigorous and transparent research practices, inclusive mentorship of students and effective teaching, as well as interest in providing a small amount of clinical supervision and ability to teach graduate-level child and family intervention skills. In addition to seeking out external funding to support research endeavors, candidates will be expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in psychology, and to be an effective mentor to graduate students. Candidates will also be expected to be committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the Department of Psychology and the University of Virginia.
The Department of Psychology has a strong clinical psychology program, and the candidate is expected to be a central member of this program. In addition, there are faculty with interests in clinical psychology in several other schools in the University, including the School of Education and Human Development, School of Medicine, School of Engineering and Applied Science, and School of Data Science, among others. This position is partially supported by the UVa Grand Challenges in Brain and Neurosciences initiative, which is committed to building critical infrastructure and to support an interdisciplinary community of scholars.
