We seek candidates with expertise in one of two areas. The first is traditional clinical psychology. Ideal candidates in this area would have extensive experience in teaching courses such as abnormal psychology, psychopathology, clinical psychology, etc. The second calls for extensive experience in quantitative methods, such as statistics, data science, computing, experimental design, psychophysics, or neuroimaging. All candidates would be expected to possess expertise and be able to offer advanced electives in at least one content area of psychology.
Because the candidate will be advising students pursuing a variety of career paths, the breadth needed to mentor those interested in a variety of psychological specializations from both theoretical and applied perspectives will be viewed favorably.
