Two Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Clinical Psychology positions at Syracuse University. As part of our multiyear hiring plan, the Department of Psychology at Syracuse University invites applications for two full time tenure-track positions at the rank of assistant professor to support the APA-accredited Clinical Psychology doctoral program. This recruitment is part of an ambitious Invest Syracuse Cluster Hire Initiative in the broad area of Aging, Behavioral Health, and Neuroscience. As an integral part of this investment, Syracuse University will recruit multiple candidates for faculty positions for a research cluster in the focus area of innovative personalized approaches to technology & health. Faculty hired into these positions will build on our existing strengths in the focus area and will participate in an organized research cluster that spans multiple departments in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
Candidates for both positions must have a program of research with potential to attract extramural funding and be committed to excellence in teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, mentorship, and clinical training. The Department is especially interested in candidates with research programs focused on clinical intervention methods and health disparities.
The ideal candidate for the Intervention Methods position is a licensed clinical psychologist (or license-eligible) whose scholarship is focused on health-related intervention and/or novel methodologies for addressing health-related behaviors (e.g., telehealth, smartphone applications, sensor monitoring, etc.).
The ideal candidate for the Health Disparities position is a licensed clinical psychologist (or license-eligible) whose scholarship aims to reduce mental and physical disparities, promote equity, and/or address the needs of underserved populations.
In addition, candidates for both positions should demonstrate excellence in cultural competence, including the ability to effectively communicate across cultures.
Candidates for both positions will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate courses, mentor undergraduate and doctoral students, provide supervision of clinical training, and engage in department, college, and university-level service activities. More information about the department may be found at http://psychweb.syr.edu/. Applications will be reviewed beginning October 1, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.
