The Clinical Psychology program has been APA-accredited since 1981, and in 2019 we were awarded the maximum accreditation period of 10 years. Currently, the Applied Behavior Analysis and Clinical Psychology programs overlap on a variety of initiatives, including the Auburn University Psychological Services Center and in the local community.
Candidates should have an independent research program with interests that complement or bridge strengths with faculty in the ABA and/or Clinical Psychology programs.

Additionally, candidates who are prepared to teach and supervise psychoeducational assessments at the graduate level are highly desirable. Finally, candidates with a clear and sustained commitment to principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion in their scholarly work are highly desirable. ABD candidates will be considered but must have a PhD by the start date or the offer will be withdrawn.
