The Department of Psychology at the University of North Texas (UNT) invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions. We seek an Assistant Professor (1 position) and an Assistant/Associate Professor (1 position) to join the core faculty of the APA-accredited doctoral (PhD) program in Clinical Psychology, which has been continuously accredited for more than 40 years. Successful applicants must evidence an active and potentially externally fundable program of research (area of focus is open).

The University of North Texas is a Carnegie-designated Tier One research university. UNT is located within the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, which is the most populous metropolitan area for both Texas and the South, and the fourth-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. As the largest university in the metroplex, the flagship Denton campus educates over 38,000 students and more than 7,700 graduate students. The main campus is linked with the UNT Health Sciences Center via federal grants, research collaborations, and student practicum placements. Collaboration opportunities with other major universities in the area are also possible. North Texas VA Health Care System, which is home to the largest mental health service in the nation, is also nearby and a longstanding close collaborator. With 105 Bachelor’s, 88 Master’s, and 37 Doctoral programs, UNT offers great opportunities for interdisciplinary and collaborative research. The department is home to ~25 FTE faculty and two other doctoral programs, in addition to a large undergraduate program with more than 1300 students. Candidates with collaborative potential with faculty associated with the department’s other doctoral programs in Behavioral Sciences and/or Counseling Psychology are encouraged to apply.

Minimum Qualifications:
- Ph.D. in Psychology from an APA-accredited doctoral program in clinical psychology or foreign equivalent
- Engagement in impactful research (area open)
- Licensed or license eligible (any state is acceptable)

Substantial proportions of our majors (approximately 50%) and graduate students (approximately 30%) are from diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds and UNT is imminently projected to become recognized as a Hispanic Serving Institution. A documented commitment to and engagement with diversity in all its forms is expected. Current faculty evidence their commitment to diversity across their areas of research. To learn more about the programs’ commitment to diversity and program more generally, interested applicants are encouraged to visit the program’s homepage at:
