The Department of Psychology, College of Arts and Science, invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor faculty position in the Clinical Science area. We seek applicants whose research focuses on core psychopathologies (e.g., mood disorders, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, substance use disorders, personality disorders). We are particularly interested in applicants whose scholarly work addresses underlying mechanisms by: (a) using multiple levels of analysis (e.g., behavioral, neuroimaging, genetic, psychophysiological); and/or (b) integrating the study of psychopathology with more basic research on social, affective, or cognitive processes. We especially encourage women and minority scholars to apply.
