Job Description

MULTIPLE, TENURE-TRACK ASSISTANT PROFESSOR POSITIONS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI. The Department of Psychology at The University of Mississippi anticipates hiring two faculty in CLINICAL psychology and one in SOCIAL or COGNITIVE to address retirements and expand our faculty. The area of research specialization is open, but we anticipate that at least one of these hires will join a cluster of psychology faculty focused on health issues or diversity science research.


Applicants for all positions must be willing to teach both graduate and undergraduate courses (including practicum supervision for clinical faculty) and be willing to recruit and mentor graduate students. Applicants should have a record of research productivity and a plan for developing and maintaining a substantive research program that could attract external funding. The successful candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. at the time of appointment in August 2019. Applicants for the clinical positions should be committed to the scientist-practitioner model and evidenced-based practice and are required to have completed an APA-accredited internship.

The university is located in Oxford, which has been consistently ranked as one of the top small college towns in the U.S. For ten consecutive years, the University of Mississippi has been recognized as one of the best colleges in the nation to work for by The Chronicle of Higher Education. The university has an R-1 Highest Research Activity Carnegie Classification. In 2017, the University of Mississippi initiated Flagship Constellations, which are designed to bring together a wide range of faculty from across the main and medical campuses to address some of the most difficult and complex problems facing our nation and world. If you are interested in working with cross-disciplinary researchers, this is an exceptional opportunity for you. http://flagshipconstellations.olemiss.edu/

The University of Mississippi campuses have a student body of approximately 24,000 students, including 23% students of color and 4% international students from 86 countries.  The Psychology Department recognizes the importance of a diverse faculty and a supportive educational and professional environment that affirms the value of cultural diversity. We encourage applications from candidates who are traditionally underrepresented in academia and from all candidates who are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive academic community. http://psychology.olemiss.edu/diversity-statement/
