    Assistant/Associate Professor - Internalizing Disorders

    Applied Behavioral Science

    Position Overview

    The University of Kansas seeks an Assistant/Associate professor in etiological mechanisms of internalizing disorders in children and adolescents. This position is a full-time, academic year appointment. The faculty member will contribute to the mission of the Clinical Child Psychology Program (Department of Applied Behavioral Science [ABSC] and Department of Psychology [PSYC]), including teaching established courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels; conducting research leading to publication in appropriate outlets and to external funding as appropriate; providing advising and mentorship of graduate students in the Clinical Child Psychology Program; and engaging in unit, College, University, and national service. An earned Ph.D. from an APA- or PCSAS accredited program is required by the start date of appointment.

    Consistent with transdiagnostic approaches to clinical child and adolescent psychology, this position emphasizes etiological mechanisms underlying internalizing disorders in youth. Specific areas of focus may fall along the translational spectrum linking etiology and intervention for internalizing disorders. We define internalizing disorders broadly to include mood and anxiety disorders, as well as related disorders and indicators of emotional distress (e.g., traumatic stress, obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders, and suicide). Candidates may utilize a range of methodological approaches and units of analysis to examine relevant domains (e.g., reward sensitivity, cognitive and emotional dysregulation, behavioral inhibition, genetics). Understanding the underlying nature of internalizing problems by focusing on dysfunction in general psychological and biological systems should be central to the approach.

    In a continuing effort to enrich its academic environment and provide equal educational and employment opportunities, the university actively encourages applications from women and members of underrepresented groups in higher education. The successful candidate must be eligible to work in the U.S. by the time of appointment.

    Lawrence, KS is an excellent place to live. It is an affordable and progressive city with a lively arts and music scene, excellent schools, high quality restaurants, economical living, and a diverse cultural mix. It is also only an hour drive from downtown Kansas City.
