Department Handbook

Apply for our tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Clinical Psychology



The Department of Psychological Science at the University of Arkansas invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor in CLINICAL psychology. Appointment is set to begin August 2014 (with some flexibility). Applicants must have a Ph.D. from an APA-accredited Clinical Psychology Program and be license-eligible in the state of Arkansas.

We are open to research area but welcome scholars whose focus includes a) multicultural issues, b) children or families, c) behavioral medicine/health promotion, or d) disorders of mood.  Ideal applicants are those whose research can link with other faculty or occurs at multiple levels of analysis, including assessment of genetic or psychophysiological factors (e.g., EEG/ERP, NIRS, TMS, tDCS). A competitive startup package is available to support candidates who work in these areas, but we currently lack capacity to support fMRI research. Involvement in graduate-level training and clinical supervision, as well as active participation in undergraduate instruction, is expected.

Women and members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. The University and the Department are strongly committed to advancing diversity among faculty and students (http://diversity.uark.edu/8.php). The Department of Psychological Science is home to a major private endowment that supports its research mission, and graduate education at the University of Arkansas is supported by the $300 million Walton Foundation Endowment. Northwest Arkansas has a growing and diverse population of nearly 500,000 (http://www.accessfayetteville.org/), and is known for its beautiful scenery, a temperate climate, varied recreational and cultural opportunities, excellent schools, a nationally recognized economy, and an active regional airport with direct flights to major cities (http://www.flyxna.com/).

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should send a) a CV, b) representative publication reprints, and c) statements of research plans and teaching interests. They should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to Chair, Clinical Search Committee, Department of Psychological Science, 216 Memorial Hall, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR  72701 (or to PsycHire@uark.edu). The University of Arkansas is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution. All applicants are subject to public disclosure under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act and persons hired must have proof of legal authority to work in the United States. Questions regarding this position can be sent to tcavell@uark.edu. Visit our website, http://psyc.uark.edu, for more information.
