THE UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE, LOUISVILLE, KY. The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Louisville invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in clinical psychology at the Assistant Professor level beginning August 1, 2024. Successful candidates will hold a Ph.D. from an APA- and/or PCSAS-accredited Clinical Psychology program or related field. They will be expected to maintain an excellent record of research productivity and to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching missions of the department.
We invite individuals whose research complements or extends other research foci in the department, including adult and child psychopathology (e.g., suicide, anxiety, eating, and mood disorders), digital health technology and intervention development, health psychology, geropsychology, and racism/BIPOC/ LGBTQ+ mental health (http://www.louisville.edu/psychology/people/faculty). Applicants with research areas that connect with others in our department will be particularly attractive to build on departmental strengths and support collaborative grant applications. We especially encourage individuals with a research program that actively involves underrepresented populations and who demonstrate the potential of attracting extramural funding.
The Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program has a flexible training model that accommodates clinical science and scientist-practitioner approaches, permitting students to vary their training emphasis in accordance with their career aspirations. The department hosts two baccalaureate degree programs (Psychology and Neuroscience) and two doctoral programs (Clinical Psychology and Experimental Psychology), and participates in an interdisciplinary doctoral program in Translational Neuroscience. The applicant will be a core faculty member in our clinical program and will contribute to both undergraduate and graduate level programs. Applicants with experience or desire to teach research methods, statistics, psychopathology, assessment, and/or provide clinical supervision to graduate students are especially encouraged to apply.
The University of Louisville is an urban research university with a student body of 22,000 and 12 schools, including a Health Sciences Center with Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health and Information Sciences. The University is one of only a few that hold both Carnegie Very High Research and Community Engaged University designations. Research facilities include access to a large computing cluster, a Siemens 3T Skyra MR scanner, and several common research core facilities (https://louisville.edu/researchcores).
The University’s commitment to diversity and inclusion (http://louisville.edu/diversity) has resulted in national recognition for providing a welcoming and supportive environment for Black and LGBTQ+ students. We are committed to attracting and hiring individuals from historically under-represented groups, and culturally humble individuals, who demonstrate capacity to create inclusive work environments, work effectively on diverse teams, and serve the increasingly diverse students we admit and want to retain. The university is in the heart of a metropolitan area of nearly 1 million people that has an affordable cost of living, and is known for its vibrant arts scene, parks system, and culinary excellence.
We encourage and invite applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply. Exceptional applicants whose research, teaching, and/or service is situated in anti-racism, decolonization, and/or liberation frameworks will receive strong consideration. In particular, we are interested in candidates whose work advances social justice and amplifies voices that have been minimized, discounted, or otherwise erased from psychological science.
