Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology (Tenure-Track Position) – University of Indianapolis

The School of Psychological Sciences (SoPS) invites applications for a tenure-track position in the graduate program beginning in August 2015. The specialty area is open; however, applicants with the ability to teach graduate-level assessment and/or psychotherapy courses as well as research methods will be given highest consideration.  The successful candidate will be expected to engage in a program of applied or basic research with the potential to make a significant contribution to the literature and the field of clinical or counselling psychology.  Additional activities include chairing doctoral dissertations and MA theses and professional service to the program, university, and profession. Preference will be given to applicants from an APA accredited doctoral program in clinical or counseling psychology who are licensed or license-eligible. ABDs may be considered with the expectation of degree completion prior to starting the position.   Licensed faculty may participate in a generous faculty clinical practice plan; view our Faculty webpage.

The SoPS has fourteen full-time faculty members in an academic unit that offers undergraduate, MA, and APA-accredited PsyD clinical psychology programs. The doctoral program, which has adopted a practitioner-scholar model, accepts 20 students per year and offers concentrations in adult psychopathology and psychotherapy, health psychology/behavioral medicine, and child and adolescent psychology. The MA program offers tracks in research, mental health counseling, and addictions. An onsite psychological services center provides practicum training opportunities and low-fee services to the community. Our School is strongly committed to diversity as seen in our recent reception of the Inspiring Excellence in Diversity award; visit our diversity webpage for details: Commitment to Diversity webpage 
The SoPS is enjoying a period of creativity and innovation in program, diversity, and curriculum development. The University is moving toward an emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration across health sciences areas (i.e., psychology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, kinesiology, and athletic training), all of which will be located in a new facility on campus. The Health Pavilion, scheduled for completion in August 2015, is a multidisciplinary and multi-use facility that will provide health care services; house faculty offices, laboratories, and collaborative spaces; and be a primary location for classroom-based and clinical instruction in health related academic programs. The new building will support the institution’s emphasis on interdisciplinary health treatment and research with a focus on health disparities among underserved populations.
The University of Indianapolis is a private, comprehensive university whose motto is “Education for Service.”  Ranked in the top tier of Midwest universities by U.S. News & World Report, the campus is situated in the 12th largest city in the United States. It is within a 10-minute drive of what Forbes magazine lists as one of “America’s Best Downtowns” where the potential for networking includes a rich social and intellectual confluence of professionals, artists, and cultural/educational events. 
Candidates may apply electronically at http://www.uindy.edu/visitors/hr and should submit a cover letter, CV, reprints or preprints, statements of teaching, research, and clinical interests, and contact information for three references. Three letters of recommendation will be requested of all short-listed applicants prior to interviews. Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled, but to be assured of full consideration, materials should be received by November 14, 2014. The University of Indianapolis is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and strongly encourages applications from men and women from ethnically/racially diverse backgrounds and other under-represented groups are encouraged to apply.
